Default Project MINITruck!

So, I havn't been on here lately, but hopefully, no one forgot about my 98 Ranger XLT....http://www.cardomain.com/ride/384037...nchester-nj-us ...but its currently off the road now, undergoing a SAS with a D44!

Until then I decided to pick up a DD thats great on gas...Figured a 93 2.3L 4cyl 5spd 2wd with 3.15 gear ratio would be good enough!! **This is my 4th consecutive Ranger!**

Here she is DAY 1




Details: 93 2.3L XL 5spd, 365k mi, only 70k on the motor. Dynomax muffler, after market tach, 15" Eagle Alloys. and the broken hanger/shackle drop..

Plans: Cold air intake, HIDs, new shackle/hanger, 4"DJM Flip kit, 2" drop coils, APC shift knob, bucket seats, custom biult center console, blue neons, new door panels, new instrument cluster, all new shocks, tails, grill, ...and someday Cobra wheels..


What ya think...?

Went to work on it this weekend! already got the custom APC shift knob for sure!

but ended up painting the front end, which color matched beautifully, and dropping the front end...! cut coil style!


look 10X's better already!
