Default Hey guys check out my project

Hey all, I have been working on my Ranger now for about 2 weeks, and here is my progress so far: 1992 ranger XLT Xcab shortbed, 5.0 V8 from 1992 Mustang GT, AOD from 92 Mustang GT, 8.8 with 3:55 gear and Trac lok with disc brakes rear from 1992 Mustang GT, Ford Explorer 5.0 exhaust manifolds (poo), and 18" Torq Thrust II wheels and tires. Here are some quick pics of the truck in my shop. I have lots to do still, but I need some help finding a few parts. I desperately need seats for the truck and carpet since I got the truck at a junkyard and the interior was gone along with the rear window. If you guys can help me finding those items, I would appreciate that alot.[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

Thanks for the welcome - this is my first Ranger and I'm very excited about this truck. I still have my first truck, a 1971 F100 that my grandpa bought new. It has a 302 with 270k on it and still runs great. I have wanted a V8 ranger for awhile and I hope this works well when I'm done. Again thanks and I will post more pics as I progress

how close is the clearance for the starter with the h.o.? ive heard that regular 302's just barely clear and the 351w's dont fit at all.

The starter is close, but it fits fine. The biggest problem is that the HO manifold throttle exits pretty much right into my blower motor case. Gonna have to get creative to still have a heater.
