Default My 2000 Ranger build

Ok, I have done a lot to my truck since I got it, so I figured I would make my very own project thread I bought it for $2000 and went from there. On to the pics...

This is how it sat when I got it. I was replacing the fuel pump

put a different bed on it

Then I bought a parts truck and stole the suspension, bed, wheels and tires, and a few misc. parts

Then I put another steppie on and a few interior mods






Then I moved on to bigger and better things










test fit

I got the 5.0 in and running, but havent taken a video yet. I then bought a new bumper and shortly after another parts truck. Here's some more pics



The tear down begins!




Getting there


As it sits now




So what do you think? It has come a long ways and I am starting to like it now!
