Default STL's 2005 Ford Ranger Edge

This is to show and list everything done to my truck. It is not all in actual order how everything was done. It is close.

Current specs of Truck as of January 18th 2011

4.0 SOHC
FX4 Level II 4.10 L/S axle
3" Body lift
265/75/16 Tires
Dick Cepek Dc-1 rims

First day home June 2005




Stock white gauges


Added the NuImage sticker to go with the stock gauges


2wd normally dont come with these rims. Some how mine got them.



Painted some of the interior pieces.



Replaced the stock radio with a sony xplod


Then replaced the sony with a Alpine and added satellite radio



Added the mustang dome light




Also added the explorer OHC from a 1998 explorer.





Was able to get my hands on a full length ranger console. Super Rare






Wanted chrome door sills. Never could find any. So I used HVAC tape to highlight the Ranger


Painted the throttle body cover


Added some quick lift hood struts



Swapped out the plan door panels for one with map pockets.




Bought a tonneu cover for the truck and also was able to get a bedrug








Bought a street scene grille/bumper insert



Bought new rims went with the Dick Cepek Dc-1




Added the 06+ Ranger badges and the Ford Escape V6 emblems


Cranked the torsion bars and bought some 265/75/16 BFG A/T's



Was able to purchase left over stock of the Ford Ranger thunderbolt's exhaust system



Headlight mod was done



Wanted to add chrome front and rear bumpers. found 2 different members that were selling theirs. One from Arizona and one from New York








Also relocated the V6 emblem


With the larger tires and only having 3.55 gears in the rear axle. I opted to swap axles as it was cheaper then replacing the gears. I got a 2006 FX4 L/S axle with 4.10 gears





I had purchased a explorer IRS diff. cover to add with it. I painted it all up.

You have one of the nicest Rangers, I have ever seen!

I love your exhaust system.

Care to upload a video so I can hear how it sounds?

I like the way your truck sat with the 265/75's on it and just a T-Bar crank. I'll probably go that route when I get the new rims.

Truck's come a long way man! Good work!

Continued.....

I relocated the sat. radio down off the air vent. Also upgraded to the Delphi Xpress RC radio.






Was able to obtain some L1224R LED bulbs. They go in select ford and chevy cars.





Bought some iggee seat covers Red/Black





One day while at the junk yard getting a alternator I came across this Grille. I got it for free.



I had these thunderbolt signal mirror glass inserts for some time. You can only install them on certain OEM power mirrors. I finally gave up looking once Jazz921 showed me a way to install them.





Added a Skid Plate from a 03 FX4


Painted around the gauges red


Replaced the Alpine single din with a Alpine Double Din.








Some really great friends all pitched in and even came to install a bodylift.





The day after the lift was on


Replaced the clear corners that were blacked out for some 2006+ Corners blacked out

After:
