How different is the XLT torsion bar(?) frame and crossmember from the coilbucket ranger frame of the same vintage?

Yep, all XLT are coil spring. Torsion bar 2wd (Edge) and 4wd frames are identical. Coil sprung chassis is quite a bit different from the Edge/4wd frame from the cab forward. Here's my XLT for reference.
224717


Relative to the control arms, the rack is quite a bit further forward on XLTs.

A lot different, edge/sport shares the frame of a a arm expo, these trucks are torsion bar suspension, the xlt is coil bucket.

The rack for an edge sits in the front control arm cradle, whereas the xlt bolts to the front of the control arm cradle.

I built a setup for John Walter years back for his xlt frame, look him up on Instagram and you’ll see the difference.

No worries bud, if you are looking for an xlt setup I still have the files for the steering I built for John

Kickass! Lemme know what you want $$$ for the files.

My buddy will need that setup in the near future.

So which frame is more better?

If your going to coilover anyway, is one frame/steering setup better to start with?
