Fixed the ABS issue. It was the same issue I had with the spindle lift. One of the ABS sensors was spaced out too far from the ring gear in the bearing assembly. Took out 2 of the 3 spacers, and all is well.

Doubtful.

Let me know if he does though. I'm interested in the linkages and stuff if he's parting them out.

All this gnarly work to make it a 4wd, and a body lift is going on it.

Either way, dude that's awesome. I'm super jelous. Great work.

Thanks!

Trust me, I would much rather have the suspension lift. If I went with a Superlift, I would have to do coilovers too. Just more money than I'm willing to spend on the truck right now.

Thanks!

Send me a PM, I've been researching this swap for years and read a whole bunch of stuff even when I still had the automatic. I might have some helpful links saved somewhere.

Boots and shifters from an Fx4 or a 90s ranger twin stick?

So you converted to a manual too? Why not just buy a new truck?
