Quick fix just to get through inspection tomorrow. .
Hope everything goes good
Lets hope it pass
Good luck!! Hope they pass it!!
I did not pas.. more rust needs to be fixed
Love the rust. . Lets try inspection again
Got some more Ford on it
Boght a part truck today ( pick it up next week )
Its a 2001 Ford Ranger 2.5l turbo diesel.
I will use the engine and the bed. . Maby the axles if its ford 8.8 / D35
Got the part truck home today + I bought a set of 31's bfg at for the mazda
Think this will look good.. just need to find some 15" wheels
Not bad for 500NOK ($61)
This is the look i want
Finnaly got my brake calliper for the drivers side.. (from a junkyard)
Now i need to hunt down 2 calipper slide bolts.. Not the same calipper on the Ranger
Why not just build this truck, instead of swapping in the engine, bed, and axles. It's newer and looks in better shape than the Mazda...
Simple.. the Ranger is from sweeden, and i live in norway.. that meens shitloades of taxes (Norway is the nr 1 in the world on taxes) to just let the gowerment know the truck is on this side of the border
and the frame on the ranger is rusted to pieces.. i'm afraid if i flex the truck it will brake.. hahaha
i might put the super duty axles under it.. if i can strengthen the frame easy
Got a set of 31's bfg at on the mazda today
Realy start to like this little truck
It passed.. plates and registration on monday
And we bought a house here.. so now i never have time of
Hope to move in after summer
Had somefun with the Ranger today. .
No lift and 35's. . Haha. . Saw and a sledge hammer is all you need
That's one way to do it!!!
The Mazda got new exaust and a new fuel pump
The mazda is ready for the junkyard.. RIP
Bought a "new" 1988 F250 that will be my DD
