man its a damn shame your taking a bagged ranger and turning it into a drag racer, couldnt you just went with a stock truck?
Thats a clean 00 tremor to Im guessing your taking the whole frame and bag parts and putting a new frame under it how is the back 4 linked? If your interested in selling the frame complete with all the air management let me know.
Actually, its going to be back halved, and the truck as it is now is not driveable. It was chopped up really bad to lower it, so its AFU for anyone else, but since I am cutting the back half of it off and doing a tube chasis from there back, its no biggie.
Yeah, thats Max Lagods/SPal ranger. THey have made several attempts, and finally broke the Gale Banks record last weekend. He sent me a text message right after he did it, and said they want 225 or better next time, and they plan to run very soon.
The wheels on that truck are gay and whomever did that ' chop-job ' of bagging it needs to buy some REAL weed from myself! I've never done a bag-job on a truck, and I can see that setup is hurting. Sad.
The guy that did it is a friend of mine from Fort Lauderdale. He did it a few years ago to see just how low he could get it. It was his first major project like that, and not too bad for an 19 year old. I agree I don't care for the wheels, but hey it was his truck, so if he liked them, I loved them.
Were changing pretty much everything out anyway. The frame is going to be back halved with Mild steel tubing, and get a chopped 9" rearend, riding on a custom 4 link suspension. There will be a new bed put on, and the doors will all have handles. This will look like a normal 2000, 2 wheel drive Ford Ranger, except it will have a 14 point cage, 32 x 17 inch drag slicks, and a drag chute. Under the hood it will obviously be different, and it will have a set of 6" stacks sticking up about 6" above a custom bed cover. Still deciding on the color, either Glossy black, or bright red to match my truck now. Either way its gonna be one pissed off streetable Ranger.

That pic is of the Spal ranger driven By Max Lagod in Bonneville. Last week they set the speed record for a diesel truck at a little over 215 MPH. I plan on a chute, just cause I like it. LOL Hope to never need it.
We will have a 14 point cage in it. Its back halved, and more pics are coming as I get it. I got a Fass fuell system donated, straight from Fass. Great product, great people.
