Well I've risen from the dead and am working on the ranger, between other people's projects, but it is slowly coming along. I'm trying to get it ready to race by June if the Paisley 400 ends up happening in Oregon. I'm working on a spare tire carrier right now, and when that is done I am going to chop out the bed, mount my fuel cell and go to town on caging the beast up with 2" and 1.75" DOM. I'm building some sliders and bumpers for a Toyota Landcruiser, then doing a full longtravel build on a Sporttrac, then after that the Ranger can get some more attention :D

Shoot. I've been around just busy with work and all that good stuff. Bought me a tow rig tho. 05 Dodge 2500 Cummins 6spd manual 4x4 with a few bells and whistles :) Finally sold the exploder to a friend down in Oregon that is going to continue the build so that is good. Looking forward to advancements on the ranger soon, and I will be sure to start up a new thread for the sport trac I will be building in a few weeks...$9k in parts and ticking:D

Some eye candy :)

Did a little work this weekend outside of supporting America's fine breweries...tire carrier is done and I began tearing the bed off. Will finish that during the week before I go to work at 3pm and aim to start working on mounting the fuel cell this weekend. Will be nice to drop that uglyass stock tank.

Oops...damn rogue bouncy spare tires lol

Can I get a part number or website to where you purchased all your brake line accessories for your rear 8.8?

I am currently doing a swap now and really like the stainless braided stuff you bought and installed on your axle.

Thanks!

Any current action pics? Have any issues with the DBR kit at all? Been thinking about one for my truck.

Time for the good ole' TWO YEAR BUMP!!:eek: Got a bit too busy with house stuff, GF, work, must be getting OLD.

Got tired of weedwhacking around the ranger so decided to bring her inside for a cage, 4-link, drivetrain swap, etc.

The fenders are made by Fiberwerx. You could check http://www.mcneilracinginc.com/ too.

Well I've made a little progress on the Ranger since last time I posted lol...Still nowhere close to being completed but still moving slowly in the right direction. This stuff is pricey! :eek::D

His name is Ranger :rangertan::D:bounce:

Baja is the ultimate goal but I plan to start more local and gradually work my way South through NV and CA :)

Saving $$$ for LS1, 4L80E and Atlas currently :D

We need a shop and equipment tour. I think you've acquired a lot more stuff since Chico.

I guess I need a good excuse to bust out the broom and shop vac! If you were referring to the pics in post #130 , that's a friend's shop in OR.
