yea it drives fine and could be left as is, but the spots in norcal i hit and wanna hit require 4wd with a sfa. only stripping it to get the most money out of it, selling a cleaner stock-er ranger is easier than selling a prerunner, plus ill have a ton of parts left over for the next one or for sale.

Find you a old bronco or blazer and be good to go. Why not turn the CJ into a crawler and keep the ranger as is

why dont you SAS your truck? sell the parts, pay for the swap.

i have a buddy with a sas ranger, started life as a 2wd 3.0L, still have the 3.0 motor.

Why not put the ranger back to stock and sell the parts for a new build so you have a solid truck as a DD
