    Default UJOR Build Thread

    I created this thread for the smaller projects I have going on, hopefully I'll have some good content to fill it up! So here's what's happening right now---

    Working on an axle going to Puerto Rico. I'll be sending everything needed for a Vanaconda clone. This axle is a stage 2 with crossover steering.



    This 99 Ranger has been in the family since new, and it's been a great truck. It just needs a little TLC, so I'm going to give it a new lease on life UJOR style. Here's the plan: Full mechanical tune up including a clutch, upper & lower ball joints, steering, sway bar links & driveshaft u-joints. To fit the new BFG 265/75/16's, I'll be bolting up some new fiberglass fenders & ditching the bed. It has some damage from an accident several years ago, so I think a nice flat bed will work better Fresh paint of course, and a simple front bumper will finish it up. ---- I'll post pics

    Can't wait to see the Vanaconda clone. Ranger with a flatbed also sounds interesting.
    So when are you going to post info about the Vanaconda bumper kit?
