Hey all. So here is the lowdown. I bought a 2002 Ranger 4.0 XLT (117k mi) last month for stupid cheap off my buddy. Gave it the old refresh, flushed all fluids, sparks, filters, what not. The paint wasn't cared for whatsoever so I hit it with the clay bar, rubbing compund, polishing compound, and wax.
From there I installed the 3'' PA BL which was quite an adventure with little help from my lame friends. Took me about 3 nights, taking my time and frequently quadruple checking everything. Next a Pro Comp Short AAL went in and I cranked the T bars. Added Ion Alloy 171 15x8's wrapped in BFG AT 33'' 12.50's.
Got my ebay black headlights in with a DDM 6k HID kit and she is next to done! I dont have too many immediate plans for her besides a complete audio overhaul in the coming months. I love the truck and have a lot of work into it, let me know what you all think!
The day I bought it
