Default Just saying hello... Truck timeline inside

Hey guys, ive been a ranger owner since 2006. This was my first vehicle and I've been modding hard ever since! I'm very active over on RPS and R-F. Anyways, here's a timeline of stock to now.

Mod's and info:

1996
GO - 10:1 Compression 4.0, P&P 98TM heads, 422 Cam, BBK 66mm TB, FMS 30-lbs Injectors -3.73 & Trac Loc - Caltrac Traction Bars - 5sp swap with hurst shifter - SN95 rear brakes, 12" sport trac front brakes
Suspension - DJM 4/5 - Rear air shocks
Audio - Kenwood DNX5140 - 2 12" L5's
Exterior - 5% tint - FR500 18x9 18x10 - clear headlights/fogs - cowl hood - SS mirrors - Rollpan - De-Pinstriped - Undercover ABS bed cover
these are back in 2006 when my truck was bone stock besides some small audio changes inside.




here i added the fog light valence and fogs



roll pan, was unpainted for awhile, got painted with the hood

truck's first show


hanging out with the Indianapolis Mustang Club at the Indiana ICE hockey opener
had the ghetto fab 20s

trip to IL (truck likes to go out of state)

This was the first ranger meet i went to in INDY, next to Beard's truck back when it was still a ranger haha jk

on the lift getting 3.73's and a trac loc

and i sported the yellow slapper bars for awhile as well, then changed to cal trac style bars when i did the rear brakes


Did a fuel pump, sn95 mustang brakes, poly spring bushings, and the cal trac bars


INDY meet

rear end getting built

nice i drove to IL for the truck meet up over there

Couple of my buddies' trucks, my truck looks tiny compared to them

12" sport trac brakes using Gumby brackets

blue led interior by me

started tearing out my stock 4.0 to make room for performance 4.0 (10:1 Compression 4.0, P&P 98TM heads, 422 Cam, BBK 66mm TB, FMS 30-lbs Injectors)








and now.. winter mode

Welcome, nice build! Gotta respect the time put into this. You say you put in a built 4.0? What kind of gains did you see from this?

As far as horsepower gains, im not quite sure what the motor puts out yet. it's getting dyno'd and a better tune here in the near future. The motor was in another ranger that was bracket raced and ran low 13's with a 75 shot and mid 14's n/a.

Tons of money and time into it for sure, but i've enjoyed the outcome so far!

Thanks for the compliments so far guys!
