I'm going for Alon's look; not too big of a lift, not too small......real clean. cant beat an all white/chrome lifted truck. i just dont want the cap. otherwise, I want his look. so jealous :)

Jared's and Kyle's(Gearhead61) started it all for me....but now that i've found a theme I like.....it's that punk in the cold state that got me to get my truck where it is.

I've gotten ideas from many different Rangers on here. My truck is unique for what I do with it so I've built it to suit my needs. I like to think of my Ranger as a trail runner. I like to run around the trails here in the desert so it's a combination of different styles. A little prerunner and a little rock crawler mixed with some type of all terrain camper vehicle. Maybe an expedition vehicle better suits a title for my truck. I haven't seen any Ranger quite like mine.

Don't know if this counts since I don't own a ranger currently.

But I already talked to my buddy, and once I have the money, I have to get it from Georgia to Maine

I have always wanted a nice lifted DD that is somewhat capable. I think I have that. I'm happy w/ my truck right now. My overall inspriation was seeing a double lifted ranger on 35's...I can't even remember who's.

But zabeards is becoming inspriation for me to not be lazy and start buying parts :)

But eventually it's getting a 4.0 4x4 and manual swap with at least a 44 up front...maybe bigger...it won't be a street driven truck, but I'd want it to be if I neeeded it.

Plan is to get a diesel once gas goes up a few dollars (menaing $6 a gallon or so) (which we should see within a year at this rate :( ) and run biodiesel or SVO...and have my truck as a mud truck :)

Maurice's(Lifted97Ranger) ranger was the main inspiration for me to start really havin a go at my truck. Soon as I saw the pic of his truck in ORA I loved it. I went out and bought a set of DC-1s and body lift, and a little while later found this site, which i found out he was a member of haha. Now its getting to be the time to add the 6" suspension lift like he had and run 35s... cant wait!
