Default First time Ford owner...Twin I Beams? Really!?

Haha all kidding aside, Just aquired my first Ford and it happens to be a 1994 Ranger ext. cab 4.0 5 spd 2wd. I have always been a Chevy and Mopar guy but Im all about equal opportunity!

I have worked in a classic car resto and hot rod shop, built a few minis. Have dont the lifted truck thing, owned many muscle cars and build a few hot rods all at the ripe old age of 23.

I used to do welding and fab but I am now a tattoo artist. I eat sleep breathe art.

Most of my posts will most likely be parts compatibility questions and progress updates as I plan on slamming this truck. Static at first, depending on how much I like the truck I may bag it in the future. Will be doing plenty of sheet metal fab and will be getting a paint job ASAP.

Here is the new truck!



Today I tinted my tail lights and 3rd brake light. Pulled out the drop-in bed liner, installed a sony head unit and repaired some gross battery terminals.



My other current project. My 1971 BSA Lightning. It is a little bit custom



Traded this off for the Ranger. 1987 Nissan Hardbody I bagged. Bought for $500, Bagged it for around $1000. Lays frame on 20's. Hot Rod Flatz speed blue

Debadged it today and pulled the bumper off. About to start fabricating a roll pan to house '66 Pontiac Bonneville tail lights. Got to ditch the spare tire mount and get tail light fillers
