Default 01RangerEdge build thread

After everything I've done I figured a build thread was in order.

I got the truck in August of 2005 and only did minor mods to it. Exhaust, sub and amp, tint, and a toolbox.





I discovered some RBV forums in the summer of 2009. Then the modding got hot and heavy







Then I moved my exhaust




Black emblem



New gauges



Then the LED conversion came in (I'm in the process of converting to white LED's)







Front hitch w/ Level 2 hooks







Switchbacks




LED exterior





Kenwood KDC 794



Door speaker amp has been replaced with a JL audio one



Modded clear corners and black headlights





Had a cap, but not anymore



CB and PA antenna is off at the moment






HID's 6000K



Expo leather buckets



Emblem mod and billet






Finally, my Superlift coilover conversion with 33" KM2's and 15x8 Eagle Alloy 185's













As it sits now






Tested out the suspension just a tad, without an extra set of eyes I kept it pretty tame

Looks very good.

I always wanted to go with the coilovers up front and keep it like that but sold the truck before I did. It was just alot of money, but I feel like it would have made the ride good enough that I would have probably kept my truck.

Also what'd you do for the rear? stock with new shocks or what

The coilovers have made the ride so much better.

The rear is shackles and AAL

Does your tow D-ring hit your bumper while moving? I'd watch out for paint damage.

It has a pretty long swing before it would hit. Even on steep hills it hasn't touched it.

For as long as I've had it I haven't seen any marks

Thanks, I love the corners too. I've only seen a few trucks with them.

I'm working on a new version of them right now, with a full LED board inside them
