Would likely be right after work on Thursday. I'll probably bring it to work with me and head straight over around 4ish. I'll shoot you a text once I know for sure the truck is ready to go and I have a tow rig lined up.

Because it is difficult to fix a Jeep that has been rolled 14 times because the lead footed driver tried to take a corner at 65 or who thought it would be cool to drift through an intersection. Powr can say all day long that he has slowed down, I don't believe it until I see it.

In my defense, I've never done any of these things! except the drifting part. but not in the jeep!

I used to pull some sweet 4wd drifts in the zj before it was lifted and had old highway tires on it. I've also had it up to 115.

Power, that red toyota will drift on the pavement or the dirt. U-turns involve a quick clutch dump and it just spins right around.

I'm sure the three wheel action in tight, high speed pavement turns looks awesome as well?

Powr, I agree with Khris. The Toyota is much more suited to your driving style.

I'm not sure if it 3 wheels or not, I've never really tried it. My only screwing around involves sliding the rear end, not trying to find the edge of rolling over. Without the sway bar, it may have been capable of this, I never tried... With the sway bar, I don't think it would do it.

Andy, not sure if this link will work but... I'm betting they're widened though which then would make the mega wide on a ranger right?

Those beams say they are turned but says nothing about being widened. I would be willing to bet they are stock length F-150 which would widen the front about 6 inches if I recall. Any idea where that guy is located?

He is in Alabama.

If those were turned for 5 inches on an F-150 wouldn't that send a front end on a Ranger in negative camber hell?

Any suggestions?
Just throwing this out there, so you converted it to later year front disc, would my '78 shop manual help? I just looked at it, and it has some detailed info/diagrams on bleeding with the combi/metering valve stuff. Your more than welcome to borrow it, but I'll need it back in a couple weeks before a road trip.

I know this is probably the last thing you want to here Marn, but if you are having problem with your hand made lines I wonder if there is connection sucking in air. Either that or a line that has a high spot where you aren't able to get it to bleed.
