what level is YOUR ranger on?
 
what level is your ranger on?

ok, you've modded it...you've off-roaded it...you've cruised it around town...

for instance, my truck would be deemed high-all terrain level in my opinion...i'm lifted on bigger tires, but i dont think, or wouldnt want to hurt the truck by going thru a huge HUGE mud hole or river...yet i can wheel it around the trails with ease

yet at the same time, i see brenton and john griggs rollin in the mud, and they're only a 2wd truck...granted, on big tires, but still...they're twice as screwed if they get stuck....

My ranger is on the stock level....im too damn broke right now...soon enough!

I enjoy being stock being able to go up some of the tougher trails here in the mountains, but just 32's or 33's arent going to do the trick. You need more than just tires around here. While I love mudding, it doesnt require the greatest ground clearence, yes it helps but its definatly not as needed

My only performance mod as far as off-road ability is the limited slip axle, which is a great help w/ a 2wd. My street-bias tires still cripple me when the going gets rough, so I classify my truck as 95% on-road, 5% off-road.

100% offroad machine, my truck can drive up trees.

Bigwill41 07-09-2005 01:59 PM

mine drives pavement...

And alittle off-road...

It stock but alittle high... :smirk:

10 being off road
0 being street.

Mine is a 7

It will be a 9 or 10 when i lift her and put some bigger shoes on.

33's going on SOON!!!!!

TippnOver 07-09-2005 03:07 PM

i just know that i'm not nearly in the same ball park as the guys who go SAS...they seem to be indestructible...

and are tall as hell and can run a lot bigger tires...

Strider0O0 07-09-2005 03:24 PM

ehh.. for off road capability, id say im like a 6 maybe.. i've gone up a size in tires, and i've got 4x4 with the SOHC.. but as far as suspension and stuff.. i've done nothing.. i could do lots to gain those other 4 points to consider myself a 10.

for street, like a 5.. ive got an intake and exhaust, and a jet chip.. but who doesnt. again.. i could do sooo much more to have better street preformance.

zabeard 07-09-2005 04:03 PM

mine goes off road more and more every week...

right now i have an aal in the rear no blocks to help with axle wrap and t-bars are cranked with 32s. and kyb shocks.

after this week it will have the body lfit on it, and with a year either rcd or superlift.:shrug:

yumcheetos 07-09-2005 05:15 PM

Mine doesnt know what it wants to be....

Offroad:
.......31's........2wd....

Street:
........4 banger....Flames....

OH WAIT...those all suck......nevermind

mx98ranger 07-09-2005 05:23 PM

i hit any mud i can... and i do have to do a little trail driving a couple of times a week... so i would say 70% road, 20%trail, 10% mud

01xltranger4x4 07-09-2005 06:09 PM

HA, i wonder what my truck could do offroad......Im sure it would do awesome.

Street Performance and Road Racing

If my truck drove in my yard, it would explode....

Keep it in the twisties, and magic happens....

:shrug: I have a car driver's mentality, with the storage/hauling needs of a trucker. I made a compromise. :smile:

1 to 10 rating? 8 on the street, 3 offroad.

I need more motor to be a ten on street. Handling and braking are top notch....

Speaking of driving in the yard I did that with my truck in my backyard like after it had rainined for about 2 days straight cuz thats where I used to pull it to wash it and I got stuck like a mofo. My back tires dug holes in the yard from me trying to get out which are still there today. My rating 10 on the street, 0 offroad my truck learned it's lesson about tryin to go offroad that day.

SoundPer4mance 07-09-2005 07:50 PM

mine is all street, i almost got stuck twice at the GA meet, once in dirt, once in wet grass. but i would have taken any of those guys on the highway :wink:

BaggedEdge 07-09-2005 09:03 PM

Im not rating my truck on mods from a 1 to 10 scale im rating it compared to driving on the road to offroad so mine is a 10 cuz I never take it off road.

vp6799 07-09-2005 11:01 PM

I'm a poor bastard, so mine is mostly used for daily driver purposes, But it does see off-road and mud at times. I don't know what to rate it, 1-10 prob a 5 or 6.

Rangerboy03lvl2 07-10-2005 12:46 AM

Id say mine is an 8 for off road, since i have 35s and a 4wd with a 4.0 sohc. once i get my supercharger on... my truck is gonna wanan race and climb mountians... gonna be interesting..... haha

MrRngr94 07-10-2005 12:56 AM

Mine is all street, although if I get the itch bad enough I take it offroad. Those dream beams can take a beating. I've had the whole truck off the ground before.

doc 07-10-2005 01:46 AM

Well......
My truck used to be an OR hound! Spent every other weekend in Wharton wheeling with the guys from TRS and over at Mott... So it spent prob 40% in the dirt and 60% on the pavement. Then I hit the police academy... My free time went to ZERO and the truck became the daily driver only no OR! NOW I am working and have that little "sports car" (which I love BTW) and the truck just sits in the driveway waiting for an excuse to hit the mud again.. So I guess it is now the "trail rig."

southerngirl4x4 07-10-2005 01:54 AM

i love my stock off-roader...haha, hey now, it might not go through everything...but if you drive a lowrider around for about 10 minutes and get in my 4x4, next thing you know you're in the air. what you know bout that!

Same as my truck. You ride a shopping cart around for fifteen minutes, then we drive around in my truck, and you'll swear you're doing laps at Nascar.

My truck is sortof stock, I need new tires, so right now its onroad wanting to be offroaded. Oh and its 3.0, so I sure as hell am not street racing.

um, Level II :wink:
the only street action my truck sees is as a tow vehicle or local hauler :sly:

gettting me to VT and wheeling is what this Attachment 214248 truck is about
it's great for camping, moving the boat stuff around, I even filled way above the brim with top soil - four trips to create a garden Attachment 214249
she has never let me down off road and has been in the s h i t once or twice

this fine lady has taken me home every time - even after a hydrolock :blackeye:

PS :reporter: - John or Mike will never be stuck if they are off road with LIL BLUE :smirk:
