I'd suggest eventually getting it welded if you have a shop around that will, or if you have access to a wire welder

All the body work. You better hurry up before I get rascal with a sling shot. I found out they hybernate so I'll sneak up on him and hit him with a bat. Where's MN at tonight. Now that glen has his fancy truck back he's probably off with the queen of England eating crumpets...

Speaking of Mr. Modder, Glen did you make the oval cover on your grill???

You'll need a 31 spline axle the 28 wouldn't be a good idea I wouldn't think. If you're doing a big boy swap just get a Dana 90 rear end...

And while you're at it you could do a 80 front end might as well throw a big boy carb and heavy hitting injectors with a stroker kit while you're at it... maybe a turbo... scratch that blow holes and twin charge it...

Haha I ain't got that much money. Lol.
I am really set on a 302 from a ford explorer from same year or +/- 1 year. Then SAS so the tranny does blow up with 35's or 37's, still debating what size tires. Would eventually like to supe it up when I get the moolah

If you want to run big boy tires (33"+) you honestly will probably save money buying an explorer to swap the drive train into your ranger. You plan on keeping that beast on the streets with 35"s??
