17x7-inch Billet Specialties up front and 17x10-inch Billet Specialties out back.
Full custom mandrel-bent frame, truck was bought new and started cutting the day it was purchased. Plans are to complete the exhaust, then strip down for full paint, and detail to the max. Front suspension has hand-built tubular A-arms with heim joints and uniballs, shock hoop with twin air shocks for lift, Toyota drop spindles, Mustang rack and pinion, and all Borgeson steering joints to connect the steering. Rear suspension is a Mustang 8.8-inch rearend, narrowed with disc brakes, a two-link setup, and air shocks for the lift.
Partial stock-floor body-drop, partial traditional body-drop cut to the rockers-has to air up to open the doors. Mustang floor pan adapted to fit inside the cab, as the original channel did not succeed. The owner kept the door handles, mirrors, locks, and taillights. He shaved the cowl, Ranger emblem, fuel door, stake bed pockets, third brake light, antenna, tailgate, and tailgate handle.
Stock Ranger dash and Mustang column, Corbeau bucket seats-to be installed.
A '91 5.0 out of a Mustang and AOD trans, both will be fully rebuilt and cleaned up for show appeal.
