Pimp My Ride - 1985 Ford Ranger 2wd

I dunno if this has been posted before or if anyone is interested, but I just found online MTV's Pimp My Ride when they redid a 1985 Ford Ranger 2wd.

The finished truck actually doesn't look as bad as I thought it would be, but still is obviously wayyy too flashy and lame.

Enjoy!

they didn't even MENTION performance, engine, anything drivetrain. I guess I'll just assume they fixed that....

if they hadn't painted the wheels, put all that goofy **** in the bed, and had painted it a solid color instead of those graphics it would look pretty good I think. I'd take half that junk off and sell it. he probably did honestly.

The only thing I don't get, is why didn't they paint the door jambs the same color?

i agree with mike didn't look that bad if they didn't put the graphics on and painted the rims, the bed was just ****ing stupid i'd lagh my *** offif he was actually playing video games in it and a torrential down pour started, lol, and now he has no were for a spare tire, and i thought it was funny too how they both *****ed about drivetrain and running but didn't seem to fix any of that.

It was a show designed for the 14-22 age group, Not really about fixing cars but making them "look pretty"

I prefer Overhaulin myself..
