Default Re: Morgan's 2004 ranger

its looking like i will be saving for the mid kit. the full LT kit is just too much to bite off right now, looking to sell my old kit asap and waiting for LT wont help with that. my goal:
BTF midtravel kit (tube uppers and boxed lowers), still runs a lower ball joint but i am going to ask if it can be converted to a uniball. the upper wont be the one designed for the lift/stock spindle. it will be designed for use with the camburg spindle, which in turn will be swapped out for a dana 35 upright. brandons kit only comes with tie rod extenders, but for the new spindle im pretty sure itll have to be ALL heimed inner and outter. hopefully i can get this thing in the works within the next month!

Have you talked to Brandon about the questions you had as far as getting rid of the lbj or about using the burg spindle? I have similar questions. Also how's the 5.0 expo going??

i will be selling my burg kit complete (funny how its only been installed less than 3 months i think), and moving up to D35 spindles. havent called btf yet about switching it out to a uniball but my guess is that it wont happen. brandon's probably too busy to make a one off kit.

5.0 expo was passed up, goal was to flip it and we decided there wasnt enough margin for profit.

So you're getting the BTF mid travel like it's normally fabbed and adding Dana 35 spindles for extra strength and more $$$? Sounds legit!

Yup I want the bigger bearings really bad. Way less maintenance, but checking them still.
