this picture is embarassing.. its kind of another teaser as its farther along now. here it is missing my EE Intake, New battery, and having the starter on, and all the wires and throttle hooked up. AND A FREAKING CLEANING! but you wanted a pic.. i need a camera before i can take more. the one i was using is with my Mom down south :\

Your ranger is much much difff than Andy's, and coincidentally your engine bay is also larger than Andy's.

yeah its mainly sloppy because in the picture nothing is really hooked up so its laying on top of the motor. Kinda looks weird too because of the BL its sits alot lower. I'll get more pics over the week. I need to get some metal so i can start on bumpers that i want to have done before it gets wintery

its going good, just the normal changes like battery cables and cruise and throttle cable changes. and I re-routed some heater/coolan/AC lines to make things cleaner. I also changed my mind on the fan. I'm not running the stock fan and I'm not deciding on what i'm going to do for one. single or dual. and which one to get. I just sold my damn fan controller too hah.. oh well.

looks better without the beltdriven on there though. I am gona get some pics later this week of hopefully it perty much done besides exhaust and driveshaft.

People without mechanic's jobs usually get pretty screwed on time. Plus unfortunately working on vehicles ='s many stops at the store for little bolts and ****
