    Sweet!....thanks for posting those pics. You don't see too many Rangers with plows. Once I get my Unimount on, I'll post up some pics.

    Also, how well does it handle the plow? What do you have done to the suspension?

    The Whole Story

    It got kinda late last night when i posted these pics, now that i have some extra time i can give you guys a little back ground of my ranger.

    This truck originally belonged to my father he bought it used in 96' w/ 16,000 miles after he totaled his Nissan pickup I was in 8th grade at the time. He drove until 2000 when his company bought him a new GMC 3500 w/ 8.5' western uni mount (so lucky).The truck sat in my driveway for 2 years it was started in 2002 when we moved into our back yard and hasn't moved until November 2005. the truck had three flat tires drums were rusted solid as were the rotors and calipers I tried to crank the motor but it was seized up, i almost gave up at that point. My incentive to fix it up was that I came across the plow on ebay for pretty cheap and from what the talk about it being the worst winter ever i decided to fix it up put the a plow on it. So much for the worst winter its been 40-60 degrees all winter.

    I swapped out the engine changed the clutch assembly, slave cylinder,fuel pump, 4wd transfer case motor "crappy touch button 4wd sucks",hoses,power steering lines, battery, tires, every thing else to my amazement was fine no rust on the body except on the hood but its the size of a nickle.

    i had a lot of fun doing this project now all i need is SNOW!
    thanks for the comments

    Fix the chain so the arm is somewhat collapsed and you dont over extend it on lift. Also is the attatchment point underneath on backwards because the plow is out pretty far?

    stik208,
    the A frame is not for this truck, the plow came off a 90' dodge 50 something like that i know it came off a dodge simalar to a dakoda. the A frame had to be shortened quite a bit. western no longer makes a mount for this year so they used a 88-90 bronco 2 mount major mods were done to this plow when they mounted it. Van Dine's Four Wheel Drive Center did all the work, they had the truck for 10 days. what a job but it was worth it.
    thanks for the comments
