Still doesn't have paint lol, still getting lots of wierd looks around here! I've only owned the truck for a couple of weeks and been way too busy to take it out unfortunately. Planning on getting a weekend trip going in a couple of months when things free up. From what I hear from my buddy I bought it off of, the kit worked great. I'll report back when I have some "real" pics! (action)

my first reaction when I saw that too!

So how do you pull it off that you sell a guy an expensive suspension system and get paid to install it on a truck, then end up buying the truck for probably the same price as the equipment and fab work? Sign me up for a program like that.

Definitely got a good deal on the truck thanks to the previous owner. Had to sell the Toyota to buy it but it was definitely worth it!

Hey there are lots of bugs up here!! Nahhh the bug deflector definitely has to go I agree. Just one of those things that need to be taken care of, much like the damn annoying door chime/dome light problem.

I'm gonna try to get a desert trip together in June...if I still lived in CA I would have taken it out 5 times by now!!:confused:

Race radio is installed. Vertex 2200 VHF programmed with all sorts of race channels. So far I've only picked up the local school bus route playing around with it on my commute:rolleyes: "Mobile 4 to base"..."Base go ahead"..."Call little Timmy's mom he forgot his jacket on the bus"...literally:D

I'm thinking of getting the truck painted by someone that actually knows what they are doing at some point...would like to go with a dark grey metallic.

But in the meantime I'm thinking of just rattle-canning the fiberglass bits black so it doesn't stand out so much:)

You might be able to find that dark bluish color in a spray can at pepboys, i found my factory color there. Even if it's just temporary, it will at least be pretty close for the time being.

Pulled a new axle for the ranger today out of a buddy's cherokee that was heading for the JY. Exploder 8.8...discs...4.56...Detroit...all for $200:cool: Cleaned it up a bit today(after the picc was taken). Need to rig up some brakelines, build some bumpstop striker pads and a tube truss, then I will get it under the truck. Very excited to have gears and a Detroit again...Fun shit.:D

Also welded on a flowmaster that I yanked off the jeep before it headed out. Not sure which one it is but it is wayyy quieter than the single chamber annoying ultra loud one that has been on there for too long haha.

Shoot...probably going to have to take a rain check this time:( Have way too many things to take care of on the Ranger to get it ready for my desert trip in 3 weeks! Fab and install rear end, take out bumpstops, shorten to 2" stroke and reinstall, fab up some sort of spare tire mount in the bed, and the list goes on. I'll keep my eye out for pics! Building Stolle's rocksliders this weekend so that leaves two weekends left! I better get busy!:D

Got the 8.8 installed!:bounce: The motor/trans is much happier now. It's been too long since I've had a Detroit in my daily driver:D Braking has improved as well with the discs...enough talking, time for pics!:salute:

AWESOME!!!!! I think we might need to talk when I do my X sometime in the next year hopefully!!! Pretty much exactly what I have been researching but was looking into a cantilevered rear suspension instead of a box in the bed
