Default Frankenstein Ranger Project

I currently have a black 2002 manual 3.0 Ranger. The truck was rolled so the cab is useless and caved in. We bought the truck though because of the suspension upgrades it has and that we picked it up for a good deal. Later today we are going to be dropping a new cab and bed on it from a white 2005 automatic 4x4 ranger. Should be interesting as we are keeping it a manual so we will have to cut out the hole for that, as well as use the old wire loom. For the fenders i just bought a ranger to raptor kit from a company called Baja Fiber. I'll update this post when we drop the 2005 cab onto the 2002 frame and then again when we get it driving.

Love the project! I've actually been a fan of the Ranger to Raptor builds. What kind of "suspension upgrades" are on the green Ranger? From here it just looks like a Fabtech 5.5 with some AR's and some Wildpeaks
