Major changes are in the works for the Beast. I have a new set of axles waiting to go in. The front will be a full width, high pinion D-44 with 5.13's, ARB, alloy axles, superjoints, King coilovers and high steer. The back will be a full width 9" with a Strange center section, Detroit, 35 spline alloys and disc brakes. Keeping the leaf springs for now. The rear winch is going to have to go to make room for the 23gal BII tank that is going in. It will give me a total of 39 gallons of fuel onboard. I'll miss the winch but I never use it and it is painfully slow anyway. I'll also have a brand new set of 37" Pitbull Rockers mounted on 15X10 beadlocks. Fun, fun, fun!!
1994 Ford Ranger short bed with a 3.0L. THE 4.0 IS IN! Major improvement. The 4.0 makes much better power down low where you need it off road and, believe it or not, gets better gas milage than the 3.0! Wasn't crazy about installing the A4LD but so far it works well. The snorkel is an ARB for a 1980 Toyota Land cruiser and fits fairly well. It attaches to the stock airbox via dryer vent tubing. I installed an e-fan when my stock fan clutch died. Nice to be able to turn it off when doing deep water. I installed a 130 amp Explorer alternator and made up some of the charge deficit while running all the lights. I also installed a second battery tray for a dual battery setup.
