I would pick up some 33's, rear locker, tint, audio, nice bed cover, some HID's for my fogs, LED's for all my other lights, maybe RCD and BL, I'm sure I can think of some more stuff later.

I'm already doing my SAS but I'd throw in some coil overs front an rear and get rid of the leaf springs. The most wicked front and rear tube bumpers tied into my sliders and a cage. Custom seats that are made of a waterproof camo material (maybe neoprene). Selectable lockers front and rear instead of my automatic lock-rights. A doubler would be pretty awesome. While I'm blowing this fake money I'd also upgrade to 9 inch rear and a dana 60 front axle with chromos all around. Hydro steering would be a nice touch as well.

haha, I don't think anyone would argue that that is an awesome idea!!

Here is my list......
c-notch and 2" drop spindles, total drop 8/9ish
repaint interior
navigation system (I miss my old one)
2 12" subs instead of 1
explorer cluster and OHC
supercharger, roller rockers, UD pullies
fuel cell
edge hood
perfect alignment
door poppers
shaved everything, except bodyline
and I'm sure after all that is done I will find something else that I want to do

I'm hoping to lower it as far as possible static and have a very comfortable interior with navigation and such and an awesome paint job and she'll be done

If I had the money I'd take it to camburg and get a long travel 4x4 system. Bro light bar up top, bro lights in the front, system, maintain it street legal, and rather nice rims for an off road vehicle.

How much money are we talking here? For the sake of entertainment I'll assume enough to do anything I wanted.

So with that said:

07 Ranger would get a Full Coilover Setup with 4-link and I'd get the body fixed up. All the hail damage I have as well as the holes I have from the flares. Secondly, I'd buy a 427 SOHC Cammer Engine, go to Advanced Adapters and have them get me a setup that could handle 700 HP and still be AWD.

99 Ranger I'd get my Suspension Parts (Coilovers and Links) followed by a Ford Racing Cammer 5.0 with a ZF Tranny and Atlas 4 T-Case. Buy 2 Spider 9 Steering Axles, and make it rear steer. And then call it good for awhile. Maybe go up to 38" Boggers instead of 35".

I've told him for the last couple years.....when I win the lotto, I'm dropping the truck off with a $50,000 check. Now, I don't know if it'll be dropped off before or after the Brazilian Ranger parts and drivetrain gets throw into mine, as well as frame lengthening....but either way, it's getting a date with a Brazilian Ranger and an '03 Sonic Blue Ranger in Il.

Oh...forgot to add....Full repaint to that super super super dark grey that come on Fiddys and Stangs, with a DWB stripe or something...gotta stay DWB somehow....and my other color choice, the dark brown color of Buckey's and Beard's trucks, don't go to well with DWB. lol.

Shane...he lives in Indiana lol.
Me i would build the sickest pre runner i could with whatever amount of money given to me, king 2.5's all the way around, along with triple bypasses n trailing arms in the rear, a sick rear end, hydraulic bumpstops at every corner, full cage, bfg KM2's, 4 7" hids up front and 5 across the roof. the list goes on but u get the idea

I'd sell the Ranger and buy a full size..........end of story. LOL

My Ranger doesn't fit my lifestyle anymore....or to clarify, my family. Nowhere to put the baby seat for my little boy, and the wire said she ain't sitting in the back.....LOL

On the hunt for a "family" vehicle now......LOL

As much as I'd love a full size, money wise and fuel economy, I'm looking at the 09/10 Escapes.

I'd get everything done to the Ranger that I want done, and then get a garage and house to put around it, and a car hauling trailer, and a 3/4 ton with a diesel to tow it.

Those are nice! I wouldn't mind one for the family hauler.

For me it would be SAS and a V8 for my current truck.

Realistically:
4x4/5spd swap
