Ranger Rat Rod?

I've been looking all over the net with no luck. Anybody seen/built a Ranger Rat Rod before?

Yeah, there was a post recently with a flat pink slammed truck tucking 18" smoothies. It's pretty sexy. I have seen one somewhere, I want to say in MiniTruckin', I think it was a 98-00 slammed, flat black, with white hood, roof panel, and doors, and it said like "_______ Sheriff Dept." on it or something sweet like that. Had smoothies, whitewalls, etc. So sexy. Send a PM to CrazyMikey, he was/is HUGE into the minitruckin' scene, I'm sure he's come across a couple.

The pink is lame, the smoothies are cool.

My philosophy:

2WD = slam it
4WD = jack it

Sweet! Please post pics and/or a build log if you do! Looks like I'm not the only one who thinks a first gen rat rod ranger would be awesome so there are probably quite a few people who'd like to see one completed!

Nothing wrong with lifting a 2wd, but whats the point of lowering a 4x4?

I used to have a slightly lifted 2wd B2200. It was useless!

if you do a first gen rat rod ranger, get a flathead 8 to throw in there. that would be totally rat rod.
