|Since I didn't know, I had to ask, but I did think along those lines a while ago, use a replacement 2x4x1/4" wall rect. tubing, making it close to the engine, and removable. Since I never did the SAS I never had a chance to check out my ideas.
It would be good to have an SAS, BUT I don't want 8 or 10" of lift to get fit Axle under the truck... !
Everyone I have looked at is JACKED up with 3 feet of ground clearance.
I want heavy duty but not sky high.
One last question sense you seem to know the Ranger Frames... "How good is the Ranger Frames, particularly the 3002 Ranger Frame; any weak spots, are the frames thick enough to handle some boxing/welding. I heard they are not HD !
Thanks for the idea, great minds think alike.
2003 EDGE, Std Cab, Steppie, E4 Red, 5sp, 4x
Large Tube Rear Axle, 31 Spline - FX4, 4.56 Gears, OX Locked
5" SuperLift, 33" x 12.50 x 15" BFG ATs,
Hurst Shifter w/Longer Replacement Shift Handle with (Homemade) Mounting Adapter; 1.5" up x 1" back.
Backrack mod'd to fit Steppie, Front and Rear Bumpers by Custom 4x4 Fabrication, OK.
Working on more Mods, just need more time, longer days would work !
