Default Re: The V8 Ranger is finally painted

Thanks for the comments. (Jimmeh) said it well. I've never been much of a fan of mud, and especially for this truck. It's been totally redone. The frame is painted, all cross members are powder coated. The aluminum driveshaft is polished. It's intended as a show truck. I do have a pretty nice 94 4X4 with a Detroit Locker, 4" lift and 33" BFG's that I take wheeling though. My 4 wheeling preference is Moab, although I would really like to go check out Telluride and Silverton in south western Colorado. Have a great day Ranger Dudes!

Absolutely gorgeous! I am not a fan of the airbrushed hood, but I love the time and effort that went into the truck. Its a shame its all for show. Paint it flat black and get it muddy!

Well. I suppose that Wikepedia has been wrong before, but Jimmeh is correct again. 1st Gen Rangers ran from 1983-1988, 2nd Gen 1989-1992. I believe 3rd gen to be from 1993-1997.
But, it's all good. Y'all are Ranger fans and that's all that matters.
I attached a couple pictures of my "3rd gen".
