1992 Ford Ranger Pickup - Project Trailrunner

When we last visited our Project TrailRunner, we were wrapping up the deletion of a demonic body lift. With the body back to the proper height, we turned our attention to the 4x4's frontend. We're keeping the four-wheel-drive; it adds versatility to the truck and will allow us to explore Low-range trails in addition to the high-speed prerunning and desert racing that will be the completed truck's forte.

Big dreams danced in our heads about the relatively simple task of pulling the traction beams from under the Ford and whisking them to El Cajon, California, for some racing-style reworking performed by Chad McNeil. The dreams soon faded away and daunting reality sunk in. We didn't have a good place to do the work, and we actually needed to build some of the fixtures to get the job started. Here's how we tackled the task.
