Default New from MA, wazzzzzzzup everybody!?!?

My name is Kevin and I am 21 years old and I work for Eagle Leasing, I work on tractor trailer trailers (replacing panels, metal fab, welding, etc, etc) , I originally went to school to be an auto tech and graduated but there is not enough work in the field so I turned it into my hobby instead! I was in the Marine Corps but got a medical discharge a month or two ago.

Anyways here are pics of the Rig I am picking up!!! I would love to know where I can get an aftermarket offroad style bumper for it , the stock bumper is the only complaint I have and I really don't feel like fabbing one up because I do that all day long!!!

Oh and I hope my stay here is a pleasant one and I am sure it will be!!!




My plans for the truck are to build a either a stroked 4.3 with an eaton m90 conversion and an m90 supercharger, either that or a rebuilt 4.0 with the supercharger conversion and everything to support it!

Along with a sweet flat black paint job, I like the rat style look!

Welcome to FRF, there isn't much in the way of aftermarket bumpers for Rangers so custom fabricated bumpers are hands down the most popular.

hahah nice. as soon as the snows gone we should get a group together to go out. snow wheeling sucks sometimes if u get stuck and slide backwards down a hill because of the ice under it haha.

Last summer we went to ashburnham and it was a blast. had 5 rangers out there and one guy showed up in a jeep and did some rock crawling.

My buddy has a 2 door Cherokee with a 6 inch lift, thing is awesome I almost bought that from him but he is keeping it to go to a 9 inch.

I am going to need to get a new bed for this truck, rust behind the rear right tire is ridiculous and I need to do the cab corners. The frame is steel plated however and everything else mechanically is awesome!

I don't know how long drives are going to be with these thornbirds tho, those things get a death shake and hummm like a mofo!

Where are you located?

lol i agree with the thornbirds. i've driven to maine with my M/Ts and i just went to boston today doing about 85 and it wasnt bad lol. it does shake though. Im up in Townsend, near the Brookline NH border. Most likely go wheeling in Ashburnham in the spring but still not sure. Its a good place to go though.
