Hi everyone my name is Jake! I've owned a 1983 ford ranger for quite some time, I've always known what and why to do things to it forever and never really thought i could contribute to a comunity such as this. In the very recent past I rolled my precious truck and will document the rebuild as it comes to life. After the roll I purchased 2 2000 model year xlt 4 door 4x4 rangers and will be rebuilding both of these as well. I thought it was about time i joined the forum for my own sake as well as the builds may be of interest to quite a few of you fellow ranger owners!

this is my favorite picture of my ranger before i rolled it

heres the last one before it rolled in april



EDIT:I seem to have forgotten something, Both the 2000 rangers are automatics, all of my other vehicles are manuals, i dislike driving autos and anything flyby wire. the newer(to me) and better condition of the 2000 rangers is a 4.0 so that is the one i will keep and am rebuilding as the "Girlfriend vehicle" I will most likely sell the 3.0 when its completed, i just really enjoy projects.

Took a couple current pictures of the newest 2000 ranger, i've only just begun the work as it was only aquired 6 days ago. Replaced the drivers steering knuckle, and put the spare on, replaced the passenger fender with one off the other 2000 for now so the pass. door can freely open. swapped a bumper from one my cousin totaled for now, and ebay special corners/turns that came in the mail extreeemly fast. hoping to do a front end conversion before its all said and done, the other 2000 has been rolled and needs tha cab stretched back out, i have full body works for that already, hood,doors,fenders,bumper,stepside bed. will post build threads when the time comes!
