Default 02 Ranger Build

First i'll start off with a stock pic when I brought the truck home. Aug. 09
Stock:

I drove it a few weeks before I started a few things like duals and some 31x11.5x15 thornbirds on crager soft 8 wheels and I put some Hella 500 fogs behind the grille

First wheeling trip:

After finding out the hard way that a set of thornbirds suck in the mud it was time to up grade and i wanted bigger tires too so i bought a set of 33x12.5x15 hankook dyna pro m/ts kinda pricey but I love them

Well its been almost a year since i started modding the truck so i tt and 3" bl it this past month and took the bed off cause my cousin ripped half the fiberglass fender off and Ive always thought a ranger would look good with some kind of off road flat bed.

TT and BL on 33s
I blacked out the bumpers and most of the chrome Im still thinking about blacking out the emblems or just taking them off.

well i decided to break up the red and throw on some truck bed coating on the bottom of the doors and fenders. I thought about painting it all the way up to the body line right above the door handles but have decided that one yet
Passanger side:

Driver side:


Today I installed some 35x14.5x15 boggers on 15x10 pacers wagon wheels now the ranger looks mean im also in the process of installing a manual shift transfer case from an explorer. Ive got to make a bracket for the shift lever to mount to and get the front drive shaft installed and she'll be 4X4 again.

The Boggers have about 1/4 tread left except the one on the back driver side its slick in the center I traded a set of 1st gen explorer wheels for them so im not gonna complain. But they looked small when i picked them up so I set them beside my 33s and there only like an inch taller I guess cause there 1/4 tread.

Ive got an annoying squeak in the front end I think its the shocks but not sure haven't really messed with it to find out. I'd love to sas this thing with a jeep d30 or d44. I know heep lol. Just do away with the ifs junk. I made me a custom trans shifter get some pics of it posted later and I think ima do something similar to my t-case shifter too when I get a bracket made to mount it.

Ok I couldn't resist I had to take a pic of this thing at work today i cracked myself up over this thing it almost was as tall as my truck i shoulda parked beside it and got a pic

Well I got the metal to start my off road flat bed I'm hoping to get started on it this weekend I've also picked up a ramsey 9000lb winch needs to be rebuilt but it was free so can't beat it. I'm thinking about taking the cable off and putting synthetic rope when I rebuild it. I also going to make a custom tube winch bumper for the front with maybe a stinger bar?
