Default The BLACK STALLION Project

Here is my 1998 Ranger this is the oldest pic I got on a computer for now I am going to get my wife to scan the ones of it when I got it later. A little history on my truck is that I got it in 98 from my cousin who bought a F150. I was givin this truck as my Christmas Birthday and Graduation present. I kept it till 06 when I bought my 250 and sold it to my brother. I bought it back from him in 08 and he had just about toltalled my truck I was so pissed. But on to the pics



Right after I got it back from my brother this happened I was headed fishing when the spider gears just snapped thats when it got the explorer diff



Then the engine started smoking real bad and it went to skipping like crazy so I pulled the engine out of it and this is what I found a bent ring I called my brother and asked him if he had overheated it at any pint and he told me that it run so hot on him one time it cut off and he put some coolant in it and it started up



but then nothing really happened to it for a while till this happened a drunk woman at 745 a.m. rearended me on my way to work she gets out and goes in the gas station and then runs off what a tool!!




But luckily I work at a dealership with a bodyshop in it and we were able to fix most of the damage at no cost to me

I got new wheels for my truck after the insurance paid me for the damage that was done





I went to a local u pull and they were having a weekend sale and I bought this D30 for 63 dollars from end to end



Then I got me a new header panel and grill and lights to do my 01-03 front end swap



daddys little helper had to have her pic taken with daddys new toy



then i scored some seats from the same upull for 17.99 eachand shorty console for 9.99


and now I have a hood scoop to fab on my stock hood

As of right now there is about six inches of lift between the 3" body and the t-bar crank and the explorer rear leafs and I am running 33's right now but after the sas I am probably going to 37's
