Time for a new build. 98 xlt 4.0 auto. First order of business live axle conversion. With this truck I'm going to mix some old and new. I guess you could say a restomod. I love the look of a 98-00 Ranger. So I'll retain that look but with 08-11 front bumper 06-up tail lights mirrors and emblems. Stay tuned should be interesting

Live Axle... what are you thinking ?
I won't be doing the mod, it would take me too long just to think about it !

The Emblem's, are we talking the fenders, if so, what do you think about the '03 style fender emblems, just ranger, no extra metal, and can be easily painted.

I'm going to eliminate the vacuum hubs and convert it to a non vacuum hub front. I'm going to put on 06 up fender emblems. They rectangular

ok, when you said "Live Axle" I assumed a solid axle, my mistake.

The emblems, I know what the '06 emblem looks like but to me it is too blocky.
Just thinking the '03 looks a little cleaner.

Just talking not really suggesting !

I like the looks of the 98-2000 Rangers but I like the looks of the 06-2011 rangers. So I'm going for a restomod kinda thing. Keeping the 98-2000 look but adding 06-2011 parts. Mirrors tail lights front bumper fender flares. That sorta stuff
