I blew my Dodge up (650hp tends to blow stuff up), for the last time, got a for sale sign. Old family friend of ours had this truck, got too old to drive.
Its a 99, with 30k mi on it!
No dents, NADA!
1999 Ranger, 2wd(im gunna get stuck, especially where i live), Single Cab, Short bed, 2.5l, 5 Speed, A/C, Vinyl and Manual everything (the way i shud have got my last truck)
Got it for a sweet $1500
Plan on pulling the camper, LEDs everywhere (i need some help guys), some custom interior work (no cupholder? NO WAY!)
My transmission guys a moron... Got kinda screwed on that deal. That truck was quick, but too expensive to keep running. Hopefully this truck won't blow a tranny every month. It was fun smokin 5.0s, Hondas, and Supras while it lasted...
I think a turbo 2.3 swap might be in order! (I've built a few of these already:) )
nope, $6500 48re
Triple disk converter, billet input and output, red eagle clutches, kevlar bands, upgraded all my planets and drums, and a badass u-joint annihilating valve body with shift kit.
I shouldve went to Browns diesel in riverside, but I didnt, so i got screwed, the guy fried my ECM, $4k for an ECM from dodge.....
Obviously you didn't have any hookups for parts. I can get all that quarter price.
And you must have ****ed something up because 650 hp is not enough to to blow a fully built 48re, That's enough to blow a stock slipautomatic 47re or 47rh, Should have been smart and put an NV4500 in it with a soundbend or valair dual disk, almost indestructable, but to late now I guess.
i had to replace the case, od housing, crossmember, everything, all told 6500, it was supposed to be 3800, but he kept finding more crap wrong with it...
i went out on a limb and bought an automatic with a short bed, got screwed on both ends
and a manny tranny swap wud have been too much dough (whole new wiring harness, ecm, throttle control sys), and wouldnt smog in CA, i know so gay!
and it prolly didnt help draggin a 48ft behind me half the time in the hills....
