    Final testing session with Herman Motorsports

    Damen was nice enough to invite mflo and I out to Barstow for one last run in the Trophy Truck. We shot some video and pictures we thought you guys would enjoy. It was awesome having the truck blast by me at 106mph through the whoops, and flying by mflo at about 130mph! Photo Gallery: Video...

    Shock Rebuilding Video with Brett King

    Brett was nice enough to take time out of his day to demonstrate a shock rebuild for us, because it is a really common question he gets and doesn't always have the time to thoroughly explain it. I think a lot of people here can find this useful that don't have the networking to be taught...

    9" swap into late model ranger

    9\" swap into late model ranger I would like to swap a Currie 9" into the rear of my 98 2wd Ranger, but I have heard conflicting opinions that the speedo/odo wouldn't work due to the removal of the ABS/VSS. Without the VSS speed drive, there would be problems running/shifting/etc. Then again, I...

    Trouble removing stock fender

    A friend of mine has a '92 F-150 and can't seem to get the stock front fenders off to put his new glass on. He says its spot welded in a few places, and won't budge once he has all the bolts out. I guess the xx-91 fenders aren't welded, and the 92-97 are. I'm sure there are a few of you here...

    Uniball questions

    With the current horizontal outer/spindle uniball mount craze taking over (ie: H&M, Camburg, Donahoe, etc.), it is likely my next setup will include this feature. My question is: what maintenance, if any, is required on a spherical bearing? Assuming these shops use the Teflon lined type (size?)...

    Designing upper and lower arms

    After reading the post about extending stock toy arms, I started wondering what factors go into designing upper/lower arms. I have a 98 2wd Ranger, and was wondering what challenge would lay before me if I decided to attempt this. I was considering designing a chromoly lower arm that extended...

    98-00 2wd Ranger Long Travel

    I was looking into long travel kits for my 98 Ranger, but I haven't been able to find any other than the S.I. Long travel kit which is $5,000. That is a bit out of my price range, but if it comes down to it I can do a little saving up. Right now I have a fabtech 5.5" kit, go ahead make fun of...
