Re: 01RangerEdge build thread

I'm overdue for an update. Progress slowed on the truck while the wife and I tackled other projects, plus I bought an 88 Ranger 2wd that will be my beater daily, so I've been working on getting...

Re: 01RangerEdge build thread

My build has gone fairly quiet since the last post, I've been selling old stuff and getting stuff done around the house but more tools have arrived and I can get going again.

One of the things...

Re: 01RangerEdge build thread

Drivetrain amputation is a success. Powertrain is next.

Re: 01RangerEdge build thread

So I should start having some updates again, with winter getting closer I've been able to spend more time in the shop. I finally pulled the D30 so I can replace the ring and pinion. Next the 8.8 will...

Re: 01RangerEdge build thread

Since my last update I've scored a few parts.

First is a perfect set of Level 2 shifter knobs. One of was new in the box.

Re: 01RangerEdge build thread

I would love to get a meet going once it's roadworthy.

My plan is once this is fully done I'm taking a long roadtrip to visit different areas and meet members.

Re: 01RangerEdge build thread

Not a ton of progress has happened, but the teardown has started.

First step, get the D30 out, rebuild it, sell it. Once it's gone the rest of the truck will come apart.

The whole suspension,...

Re: 01RangerEdge build thread

I appreciate that. It's crazy to think that was 6 years ago.

I never really expected to do what I've done, projects kept getting bigger and bigger. My wife tells me it'll never be done, but I see...

Re: 01RangerEdge build thread

My day started out like any other. Landscaping was on my to-do list, and my wife gave me the green light to pull the existing bushes out so we can plant new ones.

I thought, "My truck will make...

Re: My 2002 fx4 project log

My adjustable coil buckets were not only for setting the ride height, but also trying to help with lean correction. It didn't come to that but if I swap out for coilovers on all 4 corners that will...

Re: My 2002 fx4 project log

The first test drive and investigation of the noise/vibration led to the u-joint rubbing. Which we fixed.

Now it's almost a rattling sound, I've convinced myself the chain on the output side is...

Re: My 2002 fx4 project log

Speaking of front driveshafts. Ever since installing mine I've had a hell of noise going on. Without the shaft it's smooth and quiet. With the shaft sounds like a rattle and I can feel the "grinding"...
