so i have an update! you fellas have talked me out of using the ranger frame. i just aquired a donor truck its a 47 1 ton. im not to sure how much work is needed, or if its workable, to the frame on my 47 half ton. but i figured that between the 2 i should be able to make one solid frame. other than the one ton frame being physicaly longer and heavyer, with larger axles and stiffer suspension. would it be at all work able to drop it to a half ton. thinkin twin ibeam from a 75 half ton and ford 9inch. what are your thoughts? or should i just try for another half ton frame? any help would be grate just remeber i want to put a 390 big block in this thing.
