Same reason I got rid of the sport trac. I'm an idiot! lol

I sold it with 145k miles for almost $6k. Had all moog front end stuff (uppers, lowers, inner+outer tie rod ends), bilstein shocks, shackles, etc. Gearing was stock with 3.73's and factory limited slip.
I already had bought the sport trac, and wanted to SAS the ranger, but had more interest in the cash for the lift/gears/lockers/tint/receivers etc on the sport trac. The sport trac was much more capable after that stuff, loved it. But when I moved out here my needs changed.

Yep, just the cheapo gutter guard crap. Didn't look great at first, actually looked better after it faded a little bit I think. I'm not sure if I would do it on another vehicle, but I thought it looked good on the ranger. And I had a lot of big dings in the radiator before that which is honestly the main reason I did it.

Yea the gutter guards make those ugly 98-00 grilles look 100x better. I just did mine yesterday. take the grille off and lay the mesh flat on some silicone and put some weight on it and let it dry. sorry for no pics maybe later
