Default 93blueranger small build

I'm new to this forum just bought a 1993 blue ranger xlt 4.0 5 speed and wanted to share couple things I've done so far and what's left to be done

This is the first day I got it



The first thing I did was remove the pin strip and a molding it came with



Also upgraded the radio
Before

After


Cleaned up the headlights and installed some hids



I got a very good deal on some 17in mustang wheels so I bought them and threw them on, Also got tints all the way around




List of things left to do
•06 side mirrors-done
•06 tail lights-done
•96 grill chrome or grey don't know yet
•maybe Plastidip bumpers black to see how they look
•small bazooka bass
•bed liner
•valance for foglights
Couple other things

I think it's a good call on the no spacers. I don't think it is necessary.

Thumbs up Info

My thread of my NEW to me 93 that I've done some of what your wantin to do already (ALSO an FYI>the ONLY year of Ranger to have a chrome grill between 93-97 was a 94):
My 93

Changed Grill, headlights, marker lights, bumper, & valance panel with fogs:

Installed toolbox & Sport Trac tonneau cover:



Also, I'm guessin with the wheel & tire change that you are lookin to go the Pre-Runner look/setup, as the Mustang wheels looked more Street type.........

I see you broke or ground off a bed bolt, that suks. Is that Grade 5 hardware on that cab mount? If so, I would suggest the use of Grade 8 hardware on those mounts and on any future applications. IMO Grade 5 is a little light for the duty.

Yea it broke off I ended up putting a a long screw with a bolt in the bottom for now but I have to take bed back off because I replaced the filler neck and now it doesn't want to fill up the pump keeps stopping so I need to figure out why
