Default The new to me 1992 and some mods

First off thanks to all that welcomed me here - frf really good forum.
My new to me 1992 Ranger xlt- 4x4 - 4 liter
Left the lights on at work within the first month so dual battery install sounded like a really good idea, plus I like two batteries!

Had to rotate and mount the reservoir to the front frame fabricate the battery box and mount it.


Run the cable and locate the switch - who knew 2 gauge was $6.50 per foot and it took 18 feet!!



Didn't really like the way the back looked.


So I blacked out the bumper and blued in the license plate well.



Read on frf that matching the grill to the body helps with this year truck, plus the fogs were in the wrong place and didn't work.



So three hours and $20.00 later



Next project after the first of the year - fabricate a bed tool box.

John

Just a little heads up, using the side post adapters with the battery like that may cause them to not be able to be charged correctly. Also, if you have problems with it and take it back to Advance, take the adapters off and don't tell them you are running it in a Ford Ranger.
