Yeah but 35's would be better. But look at all that flex room you have now.

Default Re: What did you do to your ranger today thread

We had our Minnesota Meet today... only 2 showed up, me and Minnesota2001Ranger.

Meet was a blast..... we started off with Nice Clean Rangers!!!




See my nice red front skid plate!


Anyway the Rangers didn't stay clean for long.....




I went bumper/nose in first and it was a deep hole, quick fast drop, got stuck.... had Charlie come pull me out...wohoo..thank god i brought a tow rope.



Charlies truck!




We decided to stay away from that portion of the mudhole... but the rest was fair game...


We then skipped over to the other gravel pit, more like a sand pit, and we monkeyed around there, and watched some atvs have fun..





Then we hit the trails, thru the woods we went...saw alot of atvs and side by sides UTVs, stopped and talked to alot of cool interesting people, they liked our muddy trucks...
Heres some pics i snapped of Charlie following me on the trails.




Heres some at the lakeside, which is a nice spot to go swimming in the summer.






Then we headed to Pine River... but first we did a truck swap.... i drove charlies 2001 4.0L and he drove my 99 3.0L...
It was fun.... and we both agree... the difference between the 3.0 and 4.0, isnt anything to really brag about... his truck drove great, nice and smooth, the new tires are great... love his power windows/mirrors, and i have to hand it to him, his interior is pretty dam clean... mine is messy cuz i brought alot of tools and gear...
It was fun for each of us to see our trucks driven by someone else...weird watching my truck behind me in the rear view mirror.

Heres a pic of our trucks at the DairyQueen Parking lot.


We took pics and some video clips...im uploading video clips to you-tube, will post a link when im done.
If you want to see more pics, more than what i posted here, go to my website gallery:
http://www.gcextreme.com/FordRanger/...eets/Oct_2012/

So far as we know, nothing got damaged or broken..
Had one issue, I must have got my battery connection terminals so dirty (yeah the engine bay is horribly dirty now), and the battery was going dead... good thing i had my jumper booster pack.... it slowly got better and charged after we cleaned the terminals..

It was a fun, muddy trip....wish we had more people to come..

I brought some walkie-talkies so Charlie and i were able to communicate on the trail, which worked out great!

Also notice my red skid plate... just painted it a few days ago, and stuck it on the morning of the meet...



Also had to add an FRF.com sticker to it.
