Default Possible front clip conversion for 86 ranger

I'm baggin my 86 ranger and instead of buyin the drop i beams for it i'm wanting to convert my front end to an independent front end still using a disc brake. Im thinking that either a toyota or a chevy c10 or a mustang front end would work I'm just curious to what years would work.

There are lots of rangers with the toyota frame clip. There are some that have used mustang II but the yoda clips are better.

The toyotas use the same bolt pattern as the rangers too. You'd be looking for a 84-94 toyota..
