Well where do I start??? I've been on here for about a year or so and I've finally decided to make my own build thread.

Now, much hasn't changed so don't bash me. Lol. I've done some things to it but not much. Here we go!


First few pics I took of it

http://www.fordrangerforum.com/membe...ums-my-99.html

One of the first things I did to it was put stickers on it...At the time I thought it was cool but I removed them after awhile

Just to add to it because it has pics of the stickers on it, I got stuck in my own yard. Lol

http://www.fordrangerforum.com/vehic...got-stuck.html


Now this happened after I put the stickers on sometime and it was that I was sideswiped in Rome, GA while heading to school at UWG with my girlfriend.



So I was then given this to drive as a rental but I was told to drive my brother's car to school instead.



After this, I painted the front valence and rear bumper trim

Before





After





Shortly after this, I let my brother drive it and noticed I had a busted grille after he drove it. He said he hit a chicken. Thanks bro! So he got me a new grille and I got some clear corners as well.



Then I tried fixing my center console

Center Console

Now after my Fall and Spring semester at school, I kept noticing that my truck was loud and it ran like total "ISH". Come to find out, I had two misfiring cylinders resulting in getting both heads replaced and fixed and losing about $1000 in our pockets.

Here's a video of it when it looked to be spitting oil out of the tailpipe




Shortly after that, my brother bought a toolbox for his Frontier but come to find out it didn't fit so he gave it to me



After that, I decided to paint the surround of my grille.





Shortly after this, I took my cousin's grill and stupid me didn't load it properly so it fell out of my truck and damaged my bed something awful.







From a distance



Most recent (7/27/13), I ordered some '06 tails from 1991fordranger







That pretty much sums it up but I still have plans.

Future plans:

1) PAY IT OFF! Lol
2) Get the bed repainted
3) Possibly some Expo seats, center console and OHC
4) Line-X (or some type of roll on liner)
5) 6000k Heads and Fogs HID kit
6) LEDs (HVAC/Gauge, Lights, etc.)
7) Bed-rail and tailgate caps
8) Maybe lift it??? Idk yet though
9) Maybe swap the front bumper for a 2004-2005 Edge bumper
10) Maybe '01-'03 conversion

If you have any ideas or concerns, let me know.

Thanks for viewing my thread!
