    I was about to ask you the same thing...I am about to go down the street and start doing some work for the builder ....I have to get some junk done there for an inspection. Then I am back to working on a big custom roof rack for an FJ62...

    What are you doing, studying??

    Did this about a week ago but have yet had the time to post the pix. I picked this bumper up earlier this summer and was waiting for time to install it. Next on the list, sometime next year, the winch to put in it.....

    Steve's visiting his brother in AZ till after Christmas. If you are talking about the two little pills, they are the parts that lock the high and low range selection to 2wd and 4wd parts inside the transfercase. Take them out, and you can shift high and low range seperately from which wheels get drive. I'm jealous, since he can choose to have just the front wheel drive, rear wheel drive, or 4 wheel drive. Toyota cases only let you choose between rear wheel drive and 4 wheel drive, so its not as useful of a modification for me. I would love to be able to front digs sometimes.

    Thanks Josh, wish I could do the same on the ranger, but I have yet to even open the case up.

    Happy the bumper looks good!

    Nice....what is in your Ranger for a t-case? I imagine its an NPsomething or other, but not sure. I'll have a look around for ya to see if its an easy thing to do on yours.

    I think it is a Borg Warner 1354 which was the standard electric shift transfer case that came stock on the 2002 Ford Rangers with an automatic. I know absolutely nothing more about them or what kind of modifications can be done. That information is probably posted all over the Ranger and Ford forums that Sean is also on.

    Yeah it is the Borg case, one of the few mods I am seeing done is like what I want to do and convert it over to manual shift, Most of the things I see done is guy pull them out and go w/ the 203 & 205 doubled.

    Which is nice to some degree as there are a lot of manual trannies out there, a lot of 203 and 205s, plus both a lot of 203/205 doubler kits and write ups on DIY doublers. One of the things that you will have to consider before going this route it to decide beforehand what engine/tranny combo you will eventually want to put in it and base everything else around that. No need to spend all the $$ and time adapting the 203/205 to the 4 banger if you are going to stick in a V6 or V8 and finding out that the adaptor you just spent so much money on doesn't fit the new bellhousing.

    Yep that mod is way down my list, most likely when ever I get the mulas for a newer 5.0 and Adrian has the time to do all the wiring conversation, that is unless he talks me and my wallet into something bigger! So for now the 4.0 is gonna have to do w/ the 5 spd.

    In preparation for the new Duratracs, I thought I'd black out the wheels. VHT Epoxy paint - Satin Black

    They go between the shift rails to stop you from shifting into a bad combo of gears with the stock, single shifter. WHen I switch to a twin stick, those end up preventing me from accessing front wheel drive high... so they went away while i had it out anyways.

    edit: I see now that Josh beat me to the punch, but yea, thats what they do

    Seems logical to me. All I know is the 203/205 setup is one heavy friggin setup. By far the heaviest option you can go with for a commonly done transfer case setup. Not sure if that means its beefy, but it ought to be. Lots to think about on these darn projects aye?

    My truck asked for a mustache, so I gave it one, LOL. No really I put that on there when we did the Toy's for Tots run this year. Was trying to be a little festive.

    The Pepsi can is my water catcher, gotta make sure the rig gets enough to grow.

    First I would like to say that i got the idea for this mod from a thread i found on Marlin's forum. http://board.marlincrawler.com/index.php?topic=57802.0. so this is in no way my idea, but i did borrow it. The my idea part is that i decided to add the color and to make it look a little more like my truck (white, bob'd)

    My original idea was to add a real picture of my rig but i eventually figured that the extra weight of the picture paper would maybe one day wear the spring out a little earlier than normal. now i know the double sided tape and the paper does add some weight but i figured its not as much as pictur paper. plus there is not alot of space between the face of the indicatior dial and the backside of the face plate so the thicker picture paper might interfere with the smooth motion causing it to "stick" and not be fully accurate. the paper i added does drag a little on the faceplate but it does go back to "center" position when i manually test the dial in the truck.

    Since i had all the stuff at home (as im sure is common in almost every home) the mod was FREE , and it makes the truck a little more mine- instead of looking like the cookie cutter toyota 4runner rockcrawler.

    so lets get to some pics, OK?!
    sorry for the last pic in this post, i just cant seem to figure out how to KEEP it from rotating (i know its me, just having some issues)
