Default New Utah Member w/1988 Ranger

Howdy. I'm from central Utah, I'm 17 yrs old. I just bought a 1988 Ranger with a 2" lift, 2.9L V6, 5 spd. manual, with 116,000 miles. It just all-terrains (30") on it now. The truck is in very good shape for its age. It is going to be a project truck and I plan on having it for a very long time. Here's what I plan on doing to it:
4" Rough Country Lift (w/rear springs)
33" Mickey Thompson Baja CLaws
Mickey Thompson Sidebiter Wheels
Lockers, Front & Rear
Herculine the whole thing
New Exhaust
Lots of new interior stuff
Improved cooling system
Homemade custom brushguard and bumpers
and whatever else needs fixing/replacing along the way
Thanks for the great site and info. I've had several questions answered already.

welcome to FRF, Hunter!
I suggest re gearing if your going to add 33's and herculining the entire truck.
