Default 2000rangermg build

I have been a part of this forum for a little over a year now. you guys are very helpful. I thought i should make a build thread. i will try to update as much as possible but it will be a slow build.

My truck is a 2000 xlt 2wd 2spd with the 2.5L. when i bought the truck the PO put the 07 bed and seat in, bulbar with some cheap lights, linter the windows and had tinted head light covers.
The day i got it.


First thing i did to it was fix the rust on the cab corners and wheel wells and hurculine the bottom.


First detail


Then added three grill lights





Drove it around like that for a while. Then i got the recon led cab lights for the F250s





Then i spaced out my grill lights because they were way to close


Green LED dome light


Then i added a CB with dual 3 foot firestiks with custom made mounts.





Got some fx2 stickers


Spring underbody wash


LED cluster



I will continue on. i still have some thing I've done after this. some things i have done that was not in pictures was replace UCA both sides and replaced passenger side shackle and mount because the mount rusted out and broke. Let me know what you guys and girls think!

Got a 8 inch 5% tint strip


Mustang dome light
Before


After


Then a wash and wax and took the bull bar off and sold it


Because i bought These

and a 4x4 valence


Lights mounted up



They cover just about the same amount of ground as my headlights


Then the fall of 2013 i moved up to Houghton,MI for school.
Some pictures on the way up



Then me and a buddy worked the rally america race and i started ken block for on of the stages! it was super cool!



My truck after working the race and running the stage


So far that is all i have done to the truck. it will be a slow build due to being in college. i do have some plans for the summer for it tho

Thanks man I love the all black bit it's a pita to keep clean. In the summer a lift might be coming. My step dad just got the new ram black edition and I'm really tempted to completely black my truck out to match his. Like I've said before your truck is really sharp to
