replaced the wheel bearings, sway bar link bushings, upper ball joints, painted my wheels black, took my subs out, and put everything back to stock form, and finally, listed it for sale :)

Fabbed this mount out of aluminum angle and coated with Rustoleum Spray-on Bedliner

...for these to be mounted to:




And added an auxilliary fuse box to clean-up my underhood wiring. Six circuit weathertite Hella from Summit. I was sick of all of the wiring harnesses with the in-line fuse holders from the various items I've added: Driving lights, dual horns, CounterAct rust protector, back-up lights. Much cleaner install for sure.





All of the looms are color-coded in case I need to chase anything down. Fabbed-up a plate and mounted fuse panel to the ABS unit with that super duty plastic velcro.

^ Nice work!

I clay bar'd/polished/waxed my truck. Added Grand Marquis horns, painted the grill & bedlined the safari bar. Added an emblem overlay on the tailgate and put on a 21" SS black powdercoated antenna!

I tore apart the door and fixed the window reg/motor....Cleaned the cab out, and wanted to do a bunch of other stuff as well but the wife had to go to a bridal shower while i'm stuck watching the sick little one......

Things on the list...

1)repair head light switch
2)mount loose cd player
3)shampoo carpets and seats
4)install new plugs and wires
5)rhino spray bed
6)paint fender flares and grill flat black
7)paint emblems gloss white with black letters
8)spray undercoat armor
9)change leaky diff plate

the list goes on and on....I never really was into taking care of this thing like this but after i thought it died, i got on this site and it sparked a passion and after doing a little here and there i relized how much i love my truck and how great it is to just screw off in the garage each weekend....can't wait to take her duck hunting this winter.....

Traded the truck for a four door car since we got another kid coming, but as soon as the car is paid for, I'll be looking for another Ranger.

i'm sure i pissed off my ranger today because i rode my new suzuki gsx-r to work for the first time. I'll have to make it up to the old girl and wash and wax her tomorrow. Maybe take a clay bar to the paint as well.

I would love to see how that came out. I have been thinking about doing the same thing to mine.

What kind of rims did you start with? Mine are aluminum.
