Default Project Logs of my Trucks Journey so far...

The very first vehicle i got, my 2001 ford ranger extended cab, xlt, 4x4 offroad package. it was bone stock so this is where it began......


i have no 1st picture of it that i can download so this is it, closest to stock:


i needed new tires so i decided to get rims as well(note that this was before i was in love with my truck and so i didn't get the tires that i would love to put on her now.
new rims and tires:


next was the lights, i couldn't afford HID's so i got the next best thing, fake HID's!!! ha:


some random pics that i thought were cool:



^my truck at exactly 100,000 miles, yes i pulled over and took a pic ha

So my next trucks evolution was the brush guard, i bought the brush guard, a roll bar and kc long range lights to throw on it. i have only put the brush guard on seeing how it came 4 weeks before the other stuff:

i have had the roll bar and lights but don't want to put them on until i put a roll on bed liner which is coming very soon (i just took out the plastic cruddy one)

my next small mod was the 4x4 emblems to spice it up a bit because the 4x4 that came on the truck just isn't doing it for me:



^i put one on each side, i like it

My next mod which i did this past weekend was to paint the rear diff. (i love the looks of it) I think it came out good with very little splatter, i used a rust converter of black paint first, then 3 coats of red, then 1 coat of clear:



Last weekend i also fixed my passenger side fog light(it had water in it) and i cleaned my engine bay for the 1st time ever! these pics arn't to great because of how bright the sun was but here she is:


i wish i had a pic of before i cleaned it be cause its night and day difference.

So these are my trucks as they stand now:

my ranger to the left, nice and clean, and my dads avalanche to the right, it's on loan to me:::))) til he gets back from afghanistan.

My newest addition to my mods is my painted grille. i painted it black to tie up the front end of my truck with the colors navy blue and black:




My two day project in which i por15'ed the chassis. came out looking great and strong:



sorry about the bad pics and i just got my new rancho shocks today so i am gunna throw those on soon.

pic of my awesome gf sitting in my truck bed on couch cushions and surround sound speakers at a drive-in movie:

Well i just added my newest mod, and LOVE it! long story short... i was driving to work a few weeks ago when i heard a clang clang bang noise, come to find out my whole exhaust system rusted off and was hanging on my axle bouncing off the ground... so i needed a knew exhaust so i decided to go for the best.. i got a stainless steel dual rear exhaust from magna-flow and man it is fricking a beast. it sounds soooo good on the 4.0-

it looks so nice!

i love it, i just worry that i'm gonna hit something when i go off roading now...

so thats been my newest mod and i will have more very soon.
