Default Re: Morgan's 2004 ranger

well i finally found time to download all the pics from my phone. so heres an update on the last few weeks.

i last left off installing the arched 64s i got, those went in with plated kartek hangers and plated stock shackles with a bigger poly bushing. the pack feels amazing, very happy with the results. also installed the longer steel braided line to the axle, from kartek.




well i had a set of really nice PRP buckets, for about 3 weeks. awesome seats and i loved the way they held you while driving, but nowhere near friendly enough for a dd. i sold them and will be putting the cash towards a new bedcage.


replaced the LCA's for brand new ones with fresh ball joints and bushings.


some other random glamor shots.














well now im committed.








still managed to get a somewhat good amount of firewood in. bedcage will be completed in about a week..






thats all for now..

Awesome pics. But...how in the hell is your truck so clean in that last pic? With all those puddles I would have expected it all over the sides haha.

BUMP

got the rear frame boxed, stiffened up the handling alot. its nice to use your suspension travel and ONLY your suspension travel, not frame flex.



with that done i could get the old bumper welded back on. used to be a bolt on till i switched to drop hangers and couldnt mount the bumper anymore. i missed this thing for 6 months while it sat. finally, its back.


randoms from the fresno statewide meet, jan '14.
bwad and i have been doing this a long time now.. since the first norcal meet like 4 years ago.








came back with some 06 tails, think i want these nightshaded as well. guess ill get to it when i have time.


bed supports, a must if you beat your truck offroad.


after testing it a little in fresno, i needed to get the rear strapped asap. strapped right before shackle bind.




painted the bedcage


fire extinguisher on a BTF quick release mounted.


yay bedspace


to stay legal and not attract attention from the po po i whipped up a license plate light bracket real quick. about 30min said and done and painted. 2 LED strips underneath, very visible, officer...


moved from sacramento to san luis obispo.


but before i left i stopped in a norcal motor company and picked up my last 2 method double standards. got those installed as soon as i was done moving.




randoms:








and last night i got my trim finished, way better IMO than jagged sharp sheet metal edges.




thats all for now..
