Just cause he did all the work himself doesn't lift him from mall crawlin status

I think its really awesome that someone is actually cutting into their ranger and actually modifying it by not simply bolting on parts. I really liked it before the cage but now its growing on me and I give you mad kudos for doing this... I can see where a lot of guys are afraid to cut into their rangers... as I am one of them... but this shouldnt blind us it may turn out to be the next SAS mod.... Id rather see someone use their skills to improve their truck rather than bolt on stuff adn then say hey look what I did... when in fact all you did was fork out $$$$ for something you thought looked cool, Id rather see the guy build something break it then go back to the drawing boards reengineer the parts make them stronger and what not. Whats the point in hahving metal fabing skills if you cant use them and improve them? Its not cool to be a cookie cutter Im not trying bash anyone or anything... Im just saying this out of my head.

This whole thread is nothing but B.S. IMHO. If this guy really felt the need to express his opinion he woulda done it on Zachs build thread. I will call BS when I see it. Today he has attacked two people on this site and had to start two different threads in different locations to do so. There is giving opinions and there is ruffling feathers all the while calling people out to try to cause inflamation and trouble and using the "It's my opinion and Im entitled to it" excuse. Thats just how I see it.
And If Im completely off base then Ill join the topic and say this, I love beards truck but then again I spend and have spent alot of time in the "off road" world. I have seen and built alot of stuff in my time and all the usefull stuff ends up looking like junk but being highly capable, Zach has simply built a very capable rig and has made it look good in my opinion. It puts to shame most of the crap I run into, especially the rich idiots on the rubicon trail.

I realize this is overused... and ironically it is over used relating to the same person all the time. But it still applies.

I hate to be the "devil's advocate" on this, but jeez, let the guy voice his opinion. Isn't this what the forum is for in the first place? To help each other and talk trucks?
The point of a forum is discuss shared interests not to blatantly call someone out because you don't like what they've done to their truck. That's about as mature as a bully calling someone metal mouth because they have braces. Completely ignorant and stupid.

And if all the guy can afford is bolt on parts that's fine. But in that regard he has no leverage to discuss topics that are above his intellect. (IE talking about a truck that has gone through EXTENSIVE custom work)

Do I dare dive into the forum rules?

I'm not entirely sure his brain was actually trying to do anything. In fact, he may not even remember this happening in the morning.

lmao
I don't even have anything good to say, lol.
This must be the most retarded thread ever (aside from teaser threads), to start a brand new thread to tell someone you don't like their truck. Just a bunch of attention whoring waste of bandwidth (I guess now I am contributing to it, d'oh).

I few days ago I sent some friends in Oregon pictures of Zach's truck because I know they can appreciate something that has so much custom work, and especially such a clean job in the process.

Lets all start hating on trucks that don't have the typical trendy bolt-on mods that everyone installs just to fit in. lol

honestly,, i totally agree with FMD! it was simply the cleanest sexiest truck i had ever seen in my entire life! I HAD IT AS MY BACKGROUND FOR LIKE 2 MONTHS!! but now i love it even more event though its not as visually appealing because its all function over form! and thats what i appreciate! its about how you use the truck and how capable it is!!

MAD PROPS TO MR. BEARD!

I just wanna say that Zach's truck is the fvcking ****. I have grips of respect for him and his rig. He has worked hard on it and it shows. I would love to have the skill zach has so I could build up my Bronco

Beards truck was the whole reason I started doing stuff to my truck. Was surfing around the web and saw a BA blue ranger and was like WTF! That thing is insanley sick! Then I came to this site and seen what exactly he did to that beast and was astonished at the level of work put into it. But then I saw Shanes DWB and that was end of it... Been broke ever since I came to this site

Group hug around Zach! JK

This thread cracks me up... I have nothing to add to it. I thought about quoting some people's funny comments but oh well.

Guys, bashing Dave is ridiculous. My interpretation of his post was not bashing Zach or Zach's truck, so I fail to see the need to bash Dave. Yeah.. the thread is sort of random, whatever, but there is no need to bash him over it.

.......Sounds like you have some groupies Zach

I'm posting to say I like every Ranger, ever. Because I love Rangers. So much. And Mazda's too obviously. I even love the stepside Ranger STL posted that had fender flares and stock 16x7 wheels....and the Ranger with fake bullet hole stickers all over the tailgate. Oh and SAS'd blue Rangers





Okay I'm like half-serious about everything^

But I really do love Beards truck, I mean, c'mon, I USED to have those wheels!
