Default Bahamas or bust!!

Since my last thread in this section got me in a bit of hot water, i figured i'd throw something in that may be a little bit entertaining.

Come friday night i'll be hitting the road to ft. lauderdale florida in the ranger to leave out for the bahamas. naturally i decided to take the ranger and see how it goes seeing that i havent road tripped it since i put the bodylift on.

the good side is that i'm leaving a few days early so i can hit daytona beach with the truck and explore south beach miami for awhile before i get on the boat.

A 4.0 sohc, 4:10 gears, and 33's going 993 miles one way... bring on the awesome gas mileage...

this thread will be updated with pics and shenanigans along the way.

I would've lifted the truck and installed 46" tires, then just drive to the bahamas.

Oh right, gas...

Don't wanna burst your bubble, but the Cubans have had that technology for a while now.

Haha I guess I'll have to do a little planning then.

On another note, I believe the ranger is on her last road trip... 200 miles to the tank highway just isn't cutting it.

It's 988 miles from here to home for me. Average cost is about the same as a plane ticket (or train for that matter) for me, with out the BL though lol I can get 350 miles pushing it on a tank. Good luck with the ride. My word of advice make sure you stop every couple hours and take a break, although sounds like you are going to have to stop for fuel about then too lol

On a side note, remember to take pics of the hot chicas down there in the Bahamas for the rest of us lol And maybe a guy or two for Marie lol
