Cool 06 XLT Pre-Runner Build (Updated Regularly)

Hey, This is the log of my build from a stock 2006 XLT 4.0 2wd truck, to a great looking prerunner.

The build has been going for about 2 years now, from different stages of completion. Ive been slowly adding to it, and since i started a new job i now have more cash flow to play with. The truck isnt overly modded now, though its for sure far from stock. Some big upgrades were the mcneil glass, the 33's, 4.56 gears, among a lot of other stuff.

Im trying hard to get it built so i can enjoy it this summer, so bear with me on this one! Im getting very excited with whats coming up next, i really cant wait.


Heres what i started with stock in july 2010. 2006 Ranger XLT 4.0L 2WD with 38,000KMS.



Now ill skip a bunch of minor mods and 2 years of building, and just give you guys the good stuff.


Lift kit consisted of 3" spindles and 2" shackles

Before:


After:



New rims, tires, a few other mods:




Prerunner time!







I now have chevy 64 leafs, mcneil 3" glass (only one in ontario that i know of) and 33's.

Paint:







Thats where the truck sits as of right now. Next up is camburg 2.5 coils, BTF arms, Bilstein shocks, possibly a arch on the leafs, and maybe near the end of the summer ill have rear glass. OH, custom bumpers front and rear are very high on my list, need to buy a welder.

Does it make a difference in the ride? I've also heard that people remove the sway bar.

Improves your ride because you can adjust the spring rate
