I received an invitation to join the site via e-mail. And here I am. I own a 1993 Ford Ranger that came with a v6 4.0 which was nice. I've owned the truck since 99. One day I was watching a truck in cardomain that had a v8 5.0L, and that truck looks nice as hell. So I decided to do the same with my truck. I bought a 347 stroker shortblock and then the rest. When I finished the truck is was a lot of fun to drive. Unfortunately a few months later the block cracked, so I decided to go big. That's when I bought a 302BOSS 4-bolt main block and forged internals.

Anyways here are some pics of my truck



My gauge setup




That's it for now. I'm working on getting big brakes for the truck, tires and a little softer suspension, which I didn't take pics, I have a ford 9" rear with 4.11 posi on coil overs.

Any question feel free to ask

I made my own gauge setup. What I did was get some piece of plexiglass and made it to the shape of the gauge cluster. Then I bought the guages, got the electrical diagram from therangerstation.com and that's pretty much it. Hope that helps.

BTW yeah it does kinda of flies
Thanks!!

Where did you get that fuel tank/fuel cell at. I cant seem to find anything about that either! I like it and it would make for better weight distribution. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I had it made to my measurements. I measured to used maximum capacity in the space where the spare tire used to be. Hope that helps a bit

Unfortunately no. I had the appointment for today but I told my tuner that my rockers were noisier than before (my engine overheated not 2 long ago and I had to pull the heads out for repair). He told me to check it out before tunning cuz something might happen, I started to adjust the valvetrain and I stripped the #8 cylinder intake rocker arm stud thread, tried to repair it myself n did not come out right. Now I'm just waiting on new slightly better heads (trickflow) and this time I'm gonna run shaft mount roller rockers from Harland Sharp. I should hit the dyno in mid June due to the heads and rockers being backordered.
