Default Sticks-2003 Ranger Edge

Figured i'd do one of these project logs myself since it seems my ideas for mods grows quite a bit each month.lol.

Here's a dealer photo of my truck before I got it.



First mod was to remove the tonneau cover.



Next mod was to paint the faded honeycomb grille with Krylon Fusion satin black.



After:



Then came the bed caps from 01DangerRanger and the step bars that I got from Bisket4x4. He got my old chrome ones, I got his old factory black ones.





Then the factory privacy slider I picked up for $27. Still have yet to put this in though. Will update when I do.



Then came a transmission filter and gasket change due to a bad gasket. I think this picture demonstrates the importance of changing your trans filter. My truck had 46,000 miles when this picture was taken. The new trans filter had a yellow filter material. As you can see, the old one is already dirty, even after such low mileage.



Then some pic whoring.

Thanks! lol. I only have the slider mod update. That and new tires. I want Fx4 rims but I'm too broke at the moment.

Don't remind me. :/

I do plan to get new rear blocks from a 4x4 if they are indeed different, and then a T-bar crank, and then eventually 16" Fx4's, so it'll definitely go a little taller than it is now.


-----------

Update:

New Goodyear Wrangler RT/S 235/75/15, same tires as the truck originally had on it, but new.





And finally, the rear slider.

That's the only other thing tonneau covers are good for. It has some scratches between the cargo extender and tailgate, but that's about it. The whole area was immaculate when I bought the truck. Whenever I get my drop in liner, you better believe that any and all areas of contact will have foam pads to keep the liner from scratching the bed. Oh, and the liner will be super ultra mega sealed as well.

Whoops, missed this post. No extra hardware needed at all, all you need is a new seal and the sliding window and you'll be good to go.

^ I can do that.

Grabber Blue Edge decals:



Torsion Bar crank:



New Factory Bed Liner:



4x4 Decal:



I've also tinted the front two windows to 20%, but I don't have pics yet.

The next two mods I plan to do are #1 T-Bars, and an add-a-leaf for the rear. Once those are done, I plan to try and find new wheels so that I can get new tires and an alignment. Once those are done, then I can start focusing on other things, like maybe paying this damn thing off.

I'm planning on taking some new pictures of the truck tomorrow, since it appears I haven't done so since last September.

You can have the cargo extender if you pay for my Add-A-Leaf, and drive down here to trade.
