Almost a Ranger in FL

Looking around for lift ideas on my 2000 Mazda B3000 TL (Manual Tranny) edition I found this site and decided to lurk around for a bit.

Good info here.

A little bit of info on me. I am 18, almost 19, attending the University of South Florida as a Chem Major.

A big passion of mine is Audio, so I hope to be able to help some people out in that area. Audio forums used to be my big time waster when I had nothing better to do.

Beyond that, here are some pics of my truck.

Thanks for the welcome guys!

Sambob, that is an interesting predicament in your AV

The speaker box is big. I used to compete. I was sponsorted by Sundown Audio and Stereo Integrity for the2006 & 2007 seasons. Now I want to downsize but the truck needs work first. Such as finishing my cold air intake, new ball joints (and while I'm at it spindle drops to level the truck), it is due for spark plugs on the scheduled maintanance and with that I am going to go ahead and replace the coil and wires.

I dont ever plan on getting rid of the truck so long as I dont wreck it :knock on wood:

Eventually it will be level with an extra inch or two above stock in the rear. 33's and a V8 or, if I can work it out, a 6cyl turbo diesel (frontier's have them over seas...why cant I?). I want to paint it black and do darker windows...all this after college.

Sucks that it is 2wd with torsion suspension. I am not a fan of limiting travel by turning them up and spindle drop kits are expensive for someone in my financial situation.

They don't make drop spindles for Ranger. Can't do it anyways. Just crank your t-bars to raise the the front to match the rear.
