What Frame are you using? The ones I've seen use a F150 chassis and Mount the ranger body on it.

Quit looking at my chassis! king


What tranny and t-case are you trying to use? If you can shoehorn a big block into a ranger chassis, you should obviously know that the trans/t-case mounts will have to be custom fabbed peices as well.

The newer frames are slightly narrower than my 89's, so the offset is probably your best bet. Another thing you need to look out for with the length of the c6 is what t-case adapter are you using? The long adapter might make for some odd drive shaft angles to the rear unless you are using either an extended cab or long bed frame.

On your 95? I have no idea. I actually cheated and used a 79 short bed F150 frame. I measured the frame width of both the original 89 ranger frame and the 150's and they were within 1", so to make the full length axle and driveline install easier, I used the 150 frame. When I get home I can get you my frame width but don't think that will help you much.
