I just wanted to introduce myself real quick. I'm from Puyallup, WA. I have a 1999 Ranger 3.0 with the offroad package. It has no real modifications to this point and I am looking to start making it.....more capable haha. My goal for this summer is to do a small creek crossing, so I think starting with a locker and making a new bumper with a winch should make that possible. I guess thats about all I have....
Sound like a good start. If you have a 4wd ranger you'd probably have best luck with a locker and new tires. If you body lift it(easy to do if you have any skills) you can fit 33s no prob. Otherwise get some agressive 31 inch tires and a locker and you'll be pretty well off offroad.
are you looking to do a small crossing like the carbon river.lol
just kiddin I am from sumner and I am new on this site as well it seems pretty good so far.
good luck with your goal and don't get caught by the nature police around here while making that crossing.
