Well I built this truck last winter/summer. I finally got it driving in august. Now it's taken apart again as I decided to rebuild the engine and get the body ready for paint. The suspension is custom. It rides on air bags, all four corners. I built a 6 link rear.
92 Ranger, 2wd shortbox
306, 86 block, .030 TRW forged pistons, ARP rod bolts, E303 cam, GT40 heads, Edelbrock intake and carb.

The engine block was just honed and the mains were line bored. I had new cam bearings installed. The crank was polished.

I will start a thread on the truck, just not sure what area to put it in? Lowered suspension or V8?

Thanks guys. Look for a new thread in the under construction section soon!

Oh, I put the valves as close to the bags as I could. The reason is there's tank pressure all the way to the bags this way. It's that much less air I have to use to lift the truck. Make sense?

Yeah, there have been a few slow leaks that I had to take care of. The lines are DOT air brake line. No chance of bursting those. My tank pressure is 150psi but it once got to 260psi when the pressure switch stuck. Nothing happened other than the valves wouldn't open because of the pressure against them.
