Weekend Fun with the Ranger

Well after a winter of figureing out how to do the impossible, I think my son and I made it work.

Love the look of the new stang and the foglights they have?

well check out the new grille for my ranger. This is a custom 1 off design that I came up with and finally finished today.










Among other things we have done are the headlights that we made black housing, not bought. Rousch Hood scoop, Tailights, Duel Exhaust, mustang dome light conversion, Explorer OHC, Plus more but cant remember right now.


Let me know what you think.


Ranger-Dick

Dang that's nice. That's my favorite grill for a Ranger for starters and the lights mounted that way is as slick as it gets. Thanks for the pics.

people and auto manufacturers have been mounting fog/driving lamps in the grilles of cars and trucks like RangerDick has for about 30+ years,so he cannot patent his idea.

I was just talking with another member about doing that the other week! That was my exact idea, glad to see it would look awesome.
