The build or teardown is here!
measure track width. If I remember correctly the newer rangers are wider then the older gens. I would take a tape measure to a wrecking yard to find out what is the best match.
It's not Ford but Dakota is close to that width as well. When I did my ih frame swap I was able to find a beat up Dakota for $300. They are easy frames to work with too.
And so it starts...
Great repair work Nathan. What are your plans with painting it?
Are you goin v8 again?
