Default Cas's Ranger Trixie

Alright I started adding things to my ranger and figured it was time to make a build thread.

Things ive already done/already came on the ranger:

2in block and shackles lift in rear end (can go up another inch)
50% tbar crank
Replaced front spindles that were messed up
Painted fender flares same color as body (pretty good match haha)
Aftermarket shocks (unknown brand)
15x10 steel rims
30in wild country xtx sport tires (for some reason the spare is a 31in general grabber on a chrome steel rim 15x9)
Toolbox tonneau cover combo from Truxedo (came with it, looks bad)
Added decals to the back window haha



Plans for the summer (i am poor at the moment lol):

Crank tbars
Install Bumper Lights
Find better tires
Work on designing a prerunner front and rear bumper



Long term plans:

Upgraded shocks and long travel suspension
Radio
Flared Fenders
More lights!!!
New rear end (I have a 4.10 now, LSD)
06 mirrors or tube mirrors
True beadlock rims
GPS
Roof Rack
and of course anything that i think of

So if there's anything you guys would like to see done or think im doing wrong give me a holler. I eventually would like a prerunner but for now i keep it to just riding mild trails with a small ammount of mud and puddles.

On a final note, all the input y'all can give me will be appreciated

(I'll try to post pics and document the events as much as possible)

----------



well that little blue edge is what im working with here. some more pics..





----------

lights tonight by the way. i got some cheep ones off of ebay so well see how that works haha

Looking good - Looks like you have a game plan too!


BTW - That first picture REALLY makes the Ranger look tiny! Looks like a toy truck comparatively! Must be the angles or something that's not flattering at all! haha

forgot to add that the airbox mod is going well only differences are the sound when going up hills or towing and small ammount of power increase. Also, no difference in fuel consumption (will have to wait for longer to get a more steady average)
