Well, i've read everybody else builds and i have some free time so i guess i'll get around to make one of these. Now it's story time. haha.
I had a 99 Ranger. DSG
. Stepside. Extended Cab. It was a beauty. this is about the best picture i have of it. It's a shame i didn't take more.
Well one night i was over at a buddies house and well as some of you may have heard this story before so i'm just gonna tell the short version. My truck got smashed by some drunk bitch. Yeah needless to say, it was totalled.
this is her car.
Well enough of that. After all the bull shit was done, i got a new truck after a lot of searching.
It was a 2001. It's 4x4, 4.0L, and about 48,000 or something like that. And we got it for just under 10 grand. it was a gem
. i know.
Okay. So the first thing i did was take off the old bed rails and sold them to a guy on here. These are my replacements. Much nicer. I work at a dealership so everything i get it discounted so they were pretty cheap.
And after about a week of looking at my tailgate cap not lining up. i ordered the cap. haha.
Well after that my stock radio went out. So i got a pretty basic cd player. I like it. It's just a JVC basic cd player with AUX imput. and it was only like 100 bucks or so. It was pretty cheap.
Well, after this i found a cheap k&n drop in. No picture because, well, it's a drop in. Woopie.
My next mod was a Recon Light bar. I got it for like 60 bucks through work. Really easy to install. Has reverse and is directional. i love it. The pictures aren't the greatest.
the reverse really isn't blue. it's white. it just appears blue.
After the light bar, i picked up some smoked corners from STL.
Then i ordered a Curt hitch from jcwhitney for like 150. i really haven't used it, i just wanted one i guess. for extra support if somebody hits me and to put hitch covers in. haha.
And my next mod was my Toolbox. It's a black low profile, UWS box. it's a beauty. it wasn't too hard to install.
when i first got it.
i got way more pictures, that's just all i feel like posting. haha.
after the toolbox, i got some rubber floormats. they're stock for the newer rangers, and they fit well in my truck.
