Back in Oxford White

Finally back in a Ranger after a little over two years. Some people might remember my 1999 DWB Extended cab that was wrecked in May of 2012.

After the wreck I got a 2007 Dodge Caliber R/T, that I still have. It was just time to get back in another truck, and as soon as this one came up for sale it had to be mine. It is a little rough around the edges and only had about 6000 miles put on it since 2009, but the price was right for a local, 1 owner, with 116k on it.

It's a 4X4 2001 XLT with a 4.10 ls rear and 4.0 v6 with a manual trans. Manual windows, locks and mirrors. Grey Interior and Oxford White paint. Basically exactly what I had been wanting since I got my licence! Only got a couple pictures of it. I've been nonstop between work and cars lately.

It has a couple rough places but the worst was the tailgate and the trailer hitch. I can't stand the look of rust. So I hit the hitch and top of the tailgate with some bedliner. The tailgate is just a temp fix. Probably will be replacing it with a 2006+ tailgate soon.

Next step is to pull the bed and Por15 the frame and put my explorer leaf packs that have been sitting in the basement for 2 years to good use. Might do shocks while I'm there too. The 14 year old suspension seems a little tired.

Been pretty busy doing stuff to the truck lately. The only thing left to do before winter is the OHC install and finding the seats I want. Spring will bring a whole host of new additions. Really happy with how its looking so far though!

Really like what you've done with your truck so far. Pretty much identical to my truck in stock form. What wheels and backspace are those? and are tires 31s or?

Thanks! Pro Comp fake locks with 3.75 Backspacing. I have a 1/4 inch spacer on the rear though. Tires are 31s but measured a little small. Just some that I had laying around.
