F-150 lift kit into ranger, questions
Me and my buddy want to raise my 2wd Ranger, and convert it over to a 4wd. The reason why we are getting excited about this is becuase a guy at school with a raised F-150 rolled his truck, and is willing to sell the components fairly cheap. The truck was orignally a 2wd as well, and was converted to a 4wd. Is it possible to take the parts from this 1/2 and make them fit on the 1/4 ton? We would be taking the front and rear axles as well as all the related suspension components, as well as the transfer case, and 33 inch tires mounted on a set of five lug 15 inch wheels. The wrecked truck has a 302 under the hood, and my buddy is wondering if his 2.9 litre's 4 speed with overdrive transmission will bolt up to the transfer case or not.
Sorry for the incoherant post, but I'm hoping you guys get the basic idea of what we are trying to do. Basically put a 4x4 F-150 suspension onto a stock 2wd Ranger suspension to raise it up and convert it over to a 4wd, with the possiblity of eventually installing the 302.
