That took about 5 months to clean up, The body looked like a dark blue tin can all beat the fuck up, I'm still in the process of fixing that up. But the no1 thing I brag about is this, when I first got the truck it went 0-60 in about 26 sec, now it gos 0-60 in about 6.5 sec. All I did was clean my engine top to bottom, sea foamed it, new spark plugs, new spark plug wires, new ECU, changed the settings in the computer to Tennessee emissions since it was from California (fuck Cali lol), also completely filtered all oil out and new oil and oil filter in, cleaned my intake completely out, put a 23inch glass pack on it , and last but not least; I always gave it love... Treat your baby with love, you'll get the same back...
Btw, there's a lot more but I don't think you'll mind about the little stuff lol, good luck...

so by hinting around "not exactly stock" what you mean is you just have a glasspack? lol

No, let me name off the mods (don't laugh please) here's the full story...

About a year ago I bought this truck from a friend, the cost of it was only 1000. When I first got it the inside looked like shit so did the outside, (four different treads, broken side mirror, bent bumper, body damage, crooked hood, yellow head lights, damaged muffler, ripped seats, coffee/piss stains, scratched console, damaged steering wheel, the spare was on, damaged computer, water in the oil, no air filter, crooked license plate, rust in wheel wells, stock spark plugs, corroded wires, most slugged up engine I've EVER seen, and last but not least there were damn maggots under the rotten carpeting.) of course it didn't start unless you gave it gas while turning the key, and about 45 sec later would stall with no power steering. It took me about one month to clean the interior (it still didn't look nice). It took me three months to clean all the oil out, get new spark plugs/wires, get air filter, fix transmission fluid leak, clean the Black Death slug from engine, sea foam it, new oil filter, and a few more things. Yet it still wouldn't start without the pedal down, and would then still stall. So I decided to take it to a mechanic ( a waste of 100 bucks) and he couldn't help. Then I talked to my buddy and he said he would help fix it, we completely cleaned out the air intake system, the oil system (again), fixed the vacuum leak, and multiple other little things. And still, the same results... Then we looked at the computer and the truck was set up for California emissions, so we tried 4 deferent programs on the computer until we got the best results (gave the truck a lil bit of balls). After that the truck ran great. Until the muffler completely cracked, so we took it off and put a glass-pack on (wish I put a flow master on). Also got new tires, and a new rim...

All in all I spent 3000 or so on her and she runs great...
And yes I know I spent all this time writing this.
So I wouldn't call it exactly stock nor exactly modded... I still love my ranger though.

----------

Btw I have a 4.0 not a 3.slow lol.

Just a joke though...

Maybe in your eyes, but when you've made a junker about 75% faster it makes you think your lil truck is a race car lol
