yea, I'll end up doing something simmilar to the mount done above with some C channel. I can make anything. The only reason I thought about using 'stock' parts was because the steel yard I have used in the past closed down a year or 2 ago. Next closest is another 25-30 miles in another direction. As you probably know, the small sections available at hardware type stores is quite expensive. Still, I should get what I need for less than $30 I think... BTW, it's not a Ford Ranger anymore.Just the front chassis. Everything else I built.
