What would your next Ranger be?

Not sure if anybody has done something like this but, I've been thinking lately what I'd want if I were to get another Ranger. And thought I'd see what you guys would want as well. So What would you want? List the mods you would do to it, post pics of exactly what you'd be looking for. Let's see what kind of creations we all come up with.

Alright starting with me:

I'd want a 2006+ Ford Ranger STX Regular cab, Color - White. 5-speed with Cruise Control.

Next ranger that I am already casually looking for (I have a buick in storage, and now I want a track car, so I mean casually) in a perfect world would be a 86-88 ext. cab 4x2 that is clean and all original. Preferably blue, and looks like my first ranger (see pic). The plan would be to clean it up, mount better seats (I think Level II seat might be able to work, but I think the head room is lacking in a first gen), then I want to find an old 98-current 4x2 ranger frame and chassis, mostly to get rid of the Twin I beams, mount the 88 body on it, then mount a 6.0 LQ4 with a T-56, have My buddy Todd at Track time Motorsports wire it up for me so it looks original, then I want to upgrade the front suspension and brakes (Todd will build me a one off Wilwood setup as he is a wilwood dealer). Then eventually install either a hour link rear or if I get really ambitious, an IRS setup. This is a long term dream, but my first car was a ranger, and I think it would be neat to have the best body with the best drivetrain, with the best suspension.

Now my goal is to have a sweet totally custom ranger that looks stock, and everything works like it is suppose to. If I can't do it that way I won't do it.
