Giving new life.
 
So some of you know I rolled my truck recently. Well tonight the work begins. While in the process of replacing some parts I am going to install my superlift as well. Figure it was a good time. I'm heading to the shop tonight to pull the bed and start the install of the leafs/shackles. Ill post pics soon.

Did things a little different than planned.
1.Got the Expo leafs, new blocks, and shocks installed.
2.Swapped out the bed and bumper.
3.Pulled Drivers door and both x-cab doors off both trucks. Still need to get a passenger door.
4.Installed doors. Had to swap out the locks and motors in the doors cause the hookups were different for some reason. lame.

Plans for this week are to get the cab cleaned up and install the superlift up front. Maybe get windshield intalled. Hoping all goes well.

Thanks!
Well the parts truck i got was red so everything matched lol. If it was yellow i would have been rocking a yellow truck and had no problem with it lol. Yeah im trying to get it done asap but working 40hours a week kinda makes it hard since im doing pretty much everything myself.

Trucks coming along great!!!! Keep up the good work, I know it's a labor of love. I got T-boned one time and everybody said it was trashed. But I redone it anyway, one new cab passenger door and front fender and had the frame straightened. She looked like misses Frankenstein but she was back on the road..

This is kinda funny but i just realized that all the body parts that had transformers emblems on them didnt get damaged. lol well 1 front fender got pushed in but it popped right back out and you cant tell. tailgate was fine to.

Thanks. I was never really a fan of stepsides but when i saw your truck i thought it really doesnt look bad on a lifted ranger. The fiberglass bed sides are nice to. little lighter.
