Well I couldnt figure it out on this section,
but I have all my current pics up under the "Ranger Pictures" section.
Tell me what you think!!
I paid $1000 bucks for it, 1999 STD cab, 3.0, Auto, with under 95000 miles.
A STEAL in my mind.

The truck looks pretty good. So what are your plans for it?

Cool

Thanks!
For now, Im just gonna take a leaf out of the rear and cut a turn out of the coils, with a cheap rattle can or MAACO flat black paint job.

Eventually, a DJM 4-5 drop kit,
A walkthrough camper shell with 2 15'' Kicker Solo-Baric subs about 5-6'' behind the cab
Custom speaker boxes to house all the mids, highs, amps, and wiring in the bed
Exhaust
Chip
Quality flat black paint w/red and white pinstriping down the length of the truck
American Racing Smoothies w/whitewall tires
Bucket racing seats with sometin special between them (not sure what yet)
Costco memory foam matress cut down to fit between the wheel wells... ;]

and maybe some day if I happen to lose all sanity, I will drop in a 5.0.
Really I dont believe I will EVER be "Finished" with the truck, but it's nice to be able to work on something with my Father and my younger step brother who doesnt know a jig saw from a MIG welder. (He is learnin quick though!!)

Lol but all this is VERY far down the line.
At 17, Im lucky to even have a job,
buuuuuuuuuut, because Im only 17 Im not making much money at all.
But somethin is always better than nothin!!

So very true. I thought I was done with my 05 once but then saw more things to do to it

Check out the "Ranger Pictures" section, fresh trim paint adds life to a plain jane truck.

Oh yeah, I installed my new Midland CB today, any info on PA loudspeakers (wiring, models, ect) would be appreciated!!

Does your CB have a PA output on it? That is the easiest way. Then you would just need some headphone wire and the PA.

Do I also need to run an amp for the PA?

[IMG][/IMG]UPDATE:
Today I took the middle leaf in the pack out, and dropped the rear about 4" for FREE!!!
Posting pics tomorrow when I have some sunlight.

Does anybody know if it would be possible to cut a turn out of the front coil while it is still installed on the truck?? Id rater do it that way instead of taking the coil out...

Thanks!
