    Never recovered my Ranger so I picked this bad boy up as a replacement. Its a 1990 F-150 single cab 4X4 with a 302. Up front its got a trussed TTB D44 with a Giant radius arms and engine cage, 14" King dual rate 2.5 coils and 2" bump stops. The rear has a custom bed cage with 16" King/Giant link killer 2.5 bypasses with Giant 64's and a trussed 8.8. Custom front and rear bumpers, 44 gallon fuel cell and other misc stuff.

    Picture of how she was when I first got her.

    I have since ditched the HID's and replaced them with some Vision X Evo Prime bars and vented the skid plate. More importantly the gutless 302 is getting replaced with stroked 351 "396" and a built AOD4 transmission. Motor should be done this week. Once that's done future plans include having the cab caged and tied into the bed and engine cages, single swing steering for the front, trussed 9" and upgrading the shocks to 3.0's or going all out and adding a bypass up front and a single 3.5 or 4.0 in the rear.
