Default Re: Rolled Ranger fixable?!??

people roll their rangers because they are driving too fast and do not know how to control their trucks.
I laughed at a guy who rolled his truck because "a rabbit ran out into the road and he swerved to keep from hitting it"
Moron.
Now, I'll wait for all the owners of the "rolled rangers" to all say that their ranger rolling over was NOT their fault. (it never is)

wow sweet thanks for the online driving lesson. I'm not afraid to say it yes it was 100% my fault... but it was not any rabbit running out into the road.

Why bang the dents out?

Find some junkyard front end pieces and throw a body lift and wheel the piss out of it! You wont worry about scratches or adding more dents!

I had a 2000 2wd that was fixed from a rollover. There is a seam at the back of the cab about bed height to drill the spot welds out and splices in the windshield posts. Drove it for 8 years and never had any complaint except it took about 3 years for the broken glass from falling out from under the dash. Guy that did it has a lot of experience. I'd encourage about anybody to try anything but I wouldn't call this good learner project. Good luck.

Finally getting the truck almost fixed. Got the cab all straight and a windshield in it. Its got a red drivers door with a tinted window on it now lol. (always wanted a two tone truck haha) Just waiting on the frame to get straightened at the body shop. Guy said it has a diamond and a twist in the frame so about 10 hours on the frame machine and a little front end work should be up and running! fingers crossed! I'll get picts asap

yes it is, re seat the tires and i bet it still drives. Going to take some work as alot of the damage is on the cab. You could just fix the cab and drive it as it if you wanted. Most likely a totaled truck

Glad to see it is getting fixed! A little frame damage is not always too bad if you know how to pull it out. My brother nailed a phone pole hard enough to move the engine and trans back almost a foot and we had to wedge the car off the pole cause the front was wraped around it a little. 2 days of pulling parts off and reworking the frame and it was back on the road in a nice white, blue, and black color configuration. I actually enjoy buying cars that were totalled and fixing them up.
