Hi everyone.
Name: Levi
Age: 21
Job: Anything I can get a hold of.
Hobbies: Trailing, Mudding, Just driving around.
Owned my truck for 4 Months now.

Truck:
2000 Ford Ranger XLT, Single cab, 2.5L, 2WD, 5 speed manual, 4.10 open, 235/75/R15.
Still Stock for now.
I want to completely redo everything, and put the following in:
F150 limited slip axles,
4WD,
302 V8,
disc brakes,
5 speed manual,
4" suspension lift,
35/12.50/R17,
move body mounts and go from single cab to super cab,
move bed mounts and go from long to short stepside.

I don't currently have any pictures available to post, have to get a hold of my friend and get them.

X2. And you don't have a long bed unless you have a single cab 4x4 iirc. You'd have to get frame extensions and have them welded in and tons of other work. You can't just put a supercab on a frame meant for a regular cab. You're looking at a shit ton of work. Just buy a different truck. Lol

I don't want a different truck. I could completely destroy my truck and I would still spend the time and money to fix it.

Post a pic. Do you have a 7' bed

So replace the cab, replace the bed, add 4x4......that's not even your truck anymore

How does it make it a different truck? Just because the cab and the bed are getting replaced doesn't mean it isn't the same truck. That's like saying you rolled your truck and had to replace the cab, since you replaced YOUR cab it's no longer the same truck. May as well just buy a different truck. Nope, not buying a different truck. I'm happy with the one I have. And if all everyone is going to do and try and make me think about this differently then I am sorry I even made an account here. Great welcome people.

You're gonna have a new cab so everything inside will be different, a new bed a new engine a new trans and new axles so new rims and tires too. What's gonna be the same? How is it gonna still be the truck you have now? And if you are happy with the truck you have now why does your list of plans include replacing everything but the frame, gas tank and kitchen sink?
