It's a Roush spoiler from Hillbank Motorsports but they were discontinued years ago. I bought mine from Hillbank and they had three left in stock afterward. That was in 2016, they're long gone by now

We tracked the Ranger down and my wife purchased it for herself. We made a bunch of memories in the truck going to shows, traveling around, cruising with friends on Woodward. It's nice to have it back!

It has definitely taken some bumps and bruises since I sold it in November of 2017, but it's still rust free and solid. I did have to trailer it home as well.

The truck will change pretty significantly as she will make it her own. I'll bump the build thread as she makes some changes.

My Fox is still being built, just taking a while.

Thank goodness someone removed the bumper and left the spoiler. Downforce is critical with that 2.3L engine ripping.

I sold it without a rear bumper as the roll pan actually fell off while driving through the outskirts of Detroit near Zug Island. Wicked pothole in the dark and I guess the roll pan had a bit of rust at the mounts where it bolted up. Guess the guy never bothered to put the bumper on that I sold him with the truck.

The truck did sit for quite a while in Oakland University's parking garage and accrued a ton of tickets but was eventually moved. I had some people watching it and I was hoping it would get impounded and go to auction.

I'm glad the spoiler is still there because I really think it made the truck and they are DUMB hard to find now.
