Throw throw a v8 in that biatch.



thing is......with the way gas is going......and those dodges don't get good anyway, except the cummins.......your way better off by throwing in a v8. You might even get better mileage than the v6 does now. Lighter vehicle, more avalible power = less effort to move = less fuel consumption.


I really should shut up now.

Drop in a v8. Do it.

IMO the power to weight ratio you have.. the bigger your smile everytime you get behind the wheel.

Why not do both. Buy you a new to you truck to use for a daily driver and then build your ranger the way you want to. That is what I am in the process of doing.
