Default What needs to be done to your ranger?

I know we have a what did you do to your ranger thread. I was sitting here thinking that I need to do this and that but I don't have the money. So lets here it guys. What needs to be done to your truck. Maybe your like me broke and don't have the money or you just haven't got around to do it. I'll start. My truck is 7,000 miles over the oil change limit. I need to change the oil. I need to replace the Upper control arms and lower control arms and ball joints. And I need to wire up my seats.

put my fogs back on, get drop beams, and drop coils. get 17's, or 18's.

then... well.. the list gets kinda long

full 2.3T swap out of an 88 ford turbo coupe, putting out about 330 rwhp.

then, bagged, on all 4 corners, to lay frame on 20's.

then eventually, an SFBD lol

To get it running, put interior back in, paint calipers and drums (need that visual horsepower) Run royal purple in everything when i get the time, Figure out why the passenger window won't go down on the driver side switch and why my power mirrors don't work

I need to get the paint buffed, the granite quarry is rough on her (swirl marks). Nah she's not bad, just needs a good buffing!

Also, I need to fill up the anti freeze, other than that, I'm good!

yes mines all swirly from going snowboarding and all the salt on the roads..

but the bulbs on gauges/headlight switch/cruise control on off button need to be replaced, repaint raido bezel, new 3rd brake light cuz the plumbers putty thats sealing it just looks tacky, left headlight needs fixed because it keeps coming loose from clips, rear axle looks like its leaking prolly should get it checked out, and the dents i put in it the first couple weeks i had it (wierd going from a 92 accord to my ranger aha). oh and pay this mofo off!

and thats all that NEEDS done..the want to is a whole different story
