ok so here it is. just over 1 year ago i picked up my ranger 4x4 with 63,000 for $4,000. i have always wanted a 4x4 and well now that i got it and my job gives me some more time to work on it. wish i took more pics of her when i got her but i didnt. the one draw back of the truck is that it has been a money pit. almost every time i turn around im fixing it and not modding it but its coming along and well its slow going.
so far i replaced the flex fuel sending unit, the main wiring (under the seat), new breaks all around, ball joints, new 4x4 transfer case shifter, alternator, p\s pump, starter. well over 3,000 just in work. the mods i have done has been well lets just say not so much. i am doing all the work myself at home except the 3 BL
. i have done the paint and any thing that has been done just as long as it dose not get into the wiring to much. i painted the rocker panels,grille, bumpers, rims (all wit spray on bed liner), fog light mod, t-bar crank, new xplode cd deck and well for now thats all the mods. over the past week i have been doing work on the heads. i had the one on the right side crack and the left maybe warped. so thus far this is what i have done...
front bumper before paint.
the side and the rims before paint
front and doors after paint
back bumper after
after 3bl and rim paint
grille after paint
now to the fun stuff
starting the work on the heads took the hood off
found some unwanted residents under the air intake manifold
found oil and water mix in the valve covers
all the blown gaskets, heads valve covers and air intake
right now she is still torn down till Saturday i hope.
