Post My 94 Ranger Build

I'm new to the forums. I bought a 94 Ranger 4x4 from my cousin. It was wreaked and me and my dad were able to bring it back. This is what it looked like when I bought it.

We fixed everything and put a new passenger fender and hood from pull-a-part.

We got her for $400 and have $200 in parts so far. This is how she sits now only change is the front bumper is back on it. All we need to do now to get her back on the road is a new axle. Already love this truck and have a few plans for it.
Future plans:
Tonneau Cover
I have a wing type thing to put on the back of the cab.
Still needs the front axle fixed.
New radio
Subs
Looking to do more but would like some ideas so if you guys have anything you would suggest let me know. Thanks for reading

I would say go solid front axle now if you plan to lift your truck ever. Rather than have to replace an axle down the road, it's one way to do it.

Not bad, I remember fixing my old 89 after I wrecked it bad. I actually had a good time fixing it with my buddy, back when we were in high school.

Today we are possibly going up to pull a part to get some of the stuff we need for the axle.

Ended up not going to pull-a-part, so I just had a few friends over and had a bonfire. Took a pic of the Ranger beside it.

Well after quite a long break from the truck do to a dirtbike accident i have finally started back to working on the truck. We got plates for it and have been driving it lately. I went up to pull-a-part and got a cupholder console for the floor and spent a bit of time installing that today just cutting the carpet and screwing it in.
Before:

After:

Then I also test fitted a wing we have for the back of the cab. I'm not sure if I am going to keep it or not and would like some peoples opinions. I would also like to get rid of the taillight tint on the backup light portion of the taillights if anyone has any ideas how that could be done it'd be great. Thanks.

looking good. I normally don't like the razor back look. However i must say i like it on yours. What size tires you running? is there a lift on it?

It has 31's on it. And as far as we know there isn't a lift currently on it. Soon we hope to be taking the tires and lift off a 2wd ranger we own that has a 3inch suspension and a 3inch body lift. I was told by a few friends and a mechanic that the 2wd and 4wd should bold right up as far as the lift kit goes.
