so after a little while went by i had to ad some stickers and a huge back window decal for the truck. the eagle was a gift for the fact i received for becoming an Eagle Scout.i also named the truck billygoat and put it across the windshield








me and bunch of friends started going out to ocala and we could call each other if we got stuck so we put the CB radios in the truck.



i had to build a custom mount to put it were i wanted so here is the mount





heres how it sits in the truck when you drive



i got really tired of the stock horn so i replaced it with an old school AWOGAA horn this is NOT the same kind you buy from a store. this came off an old car my ungle once owned.





i upgrated the stero system in it. and built a custom subwoofer box to house 2 12inch kickers and to mount the amp and cap on it.













after awhile of having the CB radio i got pissed at other cars so i felt like they should hear me so i installed a PA SYSTEM with a 100watt PA speaker in the front.






and you cant even tell the PA is there....

forgot to add this earlier but the truck go into a car accident and totaled two cars. i drove the ranger home. and it was repaired a month later. a guy at the shop tried to steal the PA speaker in the front by broke the mount. yes the PA was not broken in the accident. it only left a small line on the radiator. but i torn the pa our and put the hitch in. its welded to the frame. and as far as i know im the only person that has a 99 ranger 2wd with a front tow hitch.

im not worried about looks when it comes to off roading. i look for fast and realiable. its a 25T clevis and a drop hitch fliped upside down. the purpose being the clevis can easly slide into the hitch. theres no trying to find the hole or worrying about screwing it in.

its never on my truck when im driving around town

It doesn't matter that your clevis is 25T, that drop hitch will break way before that.

Looks like you just placed the hook into the receiver and its not actually connected in anyway...

It connects with a pin. I just didn't put the pin in when I took the pictures. The hook is a 1.5" wide and the receiver is 2" wide so there's some wiggle room
