I have a 1997 Ford Ranger XLT. Clean CA Title on non op in my name. Has been living in my garage since approx November of 2017, and will continue to live there for the foreseeable future unless someone would like to give it a forever home and finish it.

I’ve done everything to it myself, and have tons of pictures to show the process and am more than happy to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.

-Threat Motorsports D44 Equal Length Beams w/ overlay plates +8” per side
-Threat Radius Arms
-Threat Dual Crossover Steering
-Threat Pivots
-F150 D44 Knuckle assembly/brakes

(5) 37” BFG KR2
(4) Mickey Thompson 17” wheels 5x5.5

Complete Cab Cage from 1.75x.120 DOM, windshield “A” is 1.25x..120 DOM. The engine cage ties into the cab cage. I have cut the firewall and floor out, with plans to push the engine mounts back.

The rear of the truck was chopped just behind the cab, and is now a full tube back half. 15” of up travel from ride height. When/If you put bedsides on it, you will have to cut the top of the bedside out to accommodate.
-55” T.E. Designs Trailing Arms with 1” uniballs and 1.25 Heims
-1.75x.120 DOM Upper links with 1.25 heims
-Junkyard Ford 9” housing with axles and 5/8 studs
-Upper Link Mounts are Integrated into the frame rails, with plans to land tu

The rear of the chassis has a “trunk” that will hold two horizontal 37” spares, and would flip up on struts, revealing the fuel cell, with the batteries/jack just in front of that over the axle. Or, you would be free to put the fuel cell behind the cab and have the batteries in the trunk If that’s what you wish.

-Rebuilt 1968 Ford 302 with Edelbrock intake and a couple other new parts.
-Ford Blue Valve Covers

-Grant Steering whee with quick release hub
-I do have the doors to the truck, they’re just removed at the moment.
FOA 2.5 16” Coilovers- They’ve been able to handle everything I’ve thrown at them. (Mainly wrenches)
I’ve got a pair of bucket seats and I’m sure a ton of other misc parts I can’t think of.
For the right price I’d be happy to toss in my Miller 180 Welder and some other tools.

This truck is still in need of a lot of work, but I’m sure it could greatly expedite the process for someone out there and serve as a fantastic platform to continue with.

any questions feel free to get in touch, I’m somewhat motivated to see this go as I know I won’t be able to finish it anytime soon and i could sure put that $$$$ to work elsewhere.
