2000 Ford Ranger Build

Building it for the strip not the for the streets putting a mild 460 built mostly off here with used and new parts.The trans c6 the stall still in ? until I get the truck finish and wieght of it.Putting a 12 point roll cage from Applied Racing Technology (A.R.T.) out of Clearwater FL. Goig with a 9in. ford rear with 4 link gears still in ?Going to be moveing the engine back alittle to help with the wieght tranfer and going with motor plates. I know for the mild 460 it is a little over kill, but if go with more cubes and hp later on I want the truck to hadle it with out changing everything.Heres some pics of the truck and when I got the old motor out and dash out of it.

Not sure on tire size yet but been thinking on the lines of 31 10.5 15 it will more than likely be tax time before I can get the 9" narrowed wth new axles and gears

The 28x10.5's off my 86 fit directly onto the stock rearend and sit flush with the wheel lips . I plan on installing 29x11.5 at tax time with ladder bars and coilovers . Gonna get one more inch of backspacing should fill the wheel wells real nice .

Thanks for the heads up on the tires, mine is a flairside or stepside witch ever they call them now. We measured before pulling the bed off I had a little over 14" from frame rail to fender lip. I think I should be ok on a 12" wheel but I will have to wieght until I get the 9" narrowed and all the other figured out to know what I can make work. But more than likely it will be after tax time with chirstmas coming up. I will be happy getting the engine mounted and the roll cage in and finished and inside finished by the end of the year. It bad to be on a set budget and trying to build something but when finished it will be worth every min. of time it took when hitting the track with it.

Jim

What does that cage cost ? Maybe you could pm with contact info on the company that makes it . I used a Jegs cage in my 86 wasnt too bad a deal but I ordered a 12 point and only sat it up as a 10 , didnt like the 1 1/4 door bars so I used the bars meant to be the front struts as door bars . I was gona get some more tubing and make front strut bars but never got to it .

Talking

bigblok86ranger I just ordered my header kit that you told me about I also ordered 2 shorty mufflers got the headers and mufflers for $3.oo cheaper than I could get the headers only with the $150 orders and over for only $6.99 shipping special they have right now.


On the roll cage i got it from http://appliedracing.com/ I call them one morning and they had them to me the next day they are in clearwater fl. mine was $445 for 12 point ex cab delivered i think i ordered on tueday and got them on wed.If you call in the morning they try to ship them the same I got mine before the money came out of the bank.I am not saying they get everybodys out that fast but they did mine.
