Default Another Ranger Build

Thought I would start a build log on this truck now that I finally have some time. Its an 04 3.0L 2wd, plans of being somewhat off road capable for now eventually down the road will be fully caged and probably do a motor swap but for now its just going to get me from point a to point b.
This is what the truck looked like when I got it (shitty pic) it needed a mirror a real good cleaning especially on the inside it was pretty nasty

First thing I did was put in 6000k hi/lo Hids then the next day went to the shop and had the windows tinted. from there I put in a kicker L7 10 in a ported box with a 500zx amp, amped the door speakers as well.
Then I found these general grabber at2 on craigslist for $400


Tinted the tails and sprayed the rear bumper with bedliner

Pulled the front fenders

Then another craigslist find i got fabtech springs and upper control arms for $100 had them powder coated and put them on with some bilstein 5100s just temporarily

this is how it sits as of now, just picked up some yellow fogs for in the bumper. Also got a pa/cb from doyouquaxu.
next mod will be making the center console to hold the cb 2 4 in Kicker KS speakers and for switches...
