Lift and coil over conversion, wheels and tires, custom bumpers, and since money is no option, a nice smelling air freshener.

Built 5.4 twin 67mm turbo, limited slip, Viper spec T-56, mild drop, basically keep it looking stock on the outside.... the rest of the money would go towards gas, rear tires and the lawyer OJ had so I can get out of tickets.

I'd pay it off and get a clear title, then if there's any money left over, stuff it in my mattress.

In the meantime, it gets an oil change next week.

Shouldn't the axle go on the bottom? Personally, I think a Ranger would look kind of Hodad if "topped off" with an axle.

What I'd Do

1) Pay the loan off on the Ranger so that I actually own it
2) Install some better shocks -Ranchos, Bilstiens, or?
3) Get a set of 265/75 -16 Goodyear Wrangler MT/R's or BFG Mud Terrains
4) Add skid plates under front diff area, t-case, gas tank, etc
5) Mount winch for self recovery
6) Add Four Wheel Camper to bed
7) Convert electric shift t-case to manual shift
8) Have hood professionally painted flat black to reduce glare off present white hood
9) Re-gear from 4.10:1 R&P to 4.88:1
10) Invest any funds left over in either ExxonMobil or Chevron stock, so when gas goes up to $3.50+ plus and every other Ranger driver with 4.0 SOHC power is *****ing about gas mileage, I'll buy the gas they can't afford with the dividend money off the energy sector stock I will have invested in.

I would start with an engine and transmission from a 2010 GT500, back half it with a Chassis Engineering 4 link and 21" Mickey Thompsons under tubs. Shave everything, install a Splash front end, add a hard bed cover and a roll pan then paint it Texudo Black.
