Default 05 Edge 4x4 build

Well, I am a week into owning my ranger and I love it. I'm in college and broke and have tons of bills so it'll be a slow build but I have a good base for my project I believe.

2005 Ford Ranger Edge
Supercab
4wd
Automatic
Ford 8.8"
Factory 4.10 gears
Factory LSD
Brand new 285/75/r16 Kuhmo Road Adventure A/Ts
Already took out factory "snorkel" in intake



Plans for the truck:
K&N filter
Seat covers
Toolbox
Flowmaster 40 delta
CB Radio and Antenna (not sure on what antenna yet)
Tint front two windows to match the rear windows
Maybe a body lift?


More stuff will be added to this list I'm sure. But as I do things, I'll post em up.

I am having to replace the belt tensioner b/c the bearing is spun on it. I ordered the part and will fix it in a few days.

I also picked up a tow strap and d ring insert for my tow package.




In the meantime, I went mudding with my girlfriend and a buddy of mine and his girlfriend. The 4wd definitely is awesome. Without it, I couldn't have gotten through almost any of what I went through.

oh you know it'll be fun. I already sprayed it down just to get all the caked on mud off and tomorrow I'll actually clean it.

well it is tons of fun! just the clean up process of the underside, engine bay, inside, and outside is kinda of a pain.
