Default What's everyone workin on?

What do you guys got tore apart right now? Lets see some pics!!

I am currently planning an engine of some sort, lots of decisions to make and money to scrounge up. My father in law picked up another '79 from a member on this site that he will be running this year. Should be a decent runner, a far better rig then what he was running. It has a 521 on n2o.

This one is going to be a ranger for me. my wife is taking over the step side! That pic is a couple weeks old have since built my extended radius arms, and have been working on the rear suspension. It is a 95 Ranger frame I widened out to fit the bronco TTB front x-member in. I am bumping up a class so it opens up a whole new world on my limitations. The engine will set 6in behind the centerline of the front axle! which is just about 13in farther back than it is in the step side.

I'm planning on getting my motor done by spring. Then maybe start building some axles for some big tires. Here's a pic on what I have for the new motor

Hopefully get some ladder bars built and installed. Add a 300 shot and go play. I am going to go mainly to the Friday nite shootouts for cash and the heck with the points race.

In the mean time keep working slowly on a big cube engine in case the 300 shot don't work as planned LOL.

I'm sure that's all you're doing!!!

Hopefully making a ton of headway this year on the Orange truck. Lot of cutting and welding and massaging to get the old girl MRA Super Stock legal. It was fun the first time around, but, we're a tick smarter now, and we might get hurt, lol.

I've got to rewire the truck, had a small wire fire early last year and have still been procrastinating on fixing it. Also picked up some 24" wheels and need top start saving up for rockwells.

Nothing too over the top for me. 69 2wd bumpside on a 79 4x4 dentside frame. 460/c6/np205 d44/9". 6" super lift coils up front with home-made extended radius arms, and going to build my own shackle flip and extended shackles for the rear. I suppose I could update my build thread. LOL

here is the "donor" body.


Frame all stripped down and cleaned up a bit (except for the rear axle, so I don't have to use all my tall jackstands and to add a little stability)


Here is the engine/trans bolted into place.


Here is one of my extended radius arms all painted up.
