FNG here from Iowa

hello everyone figured id chime in and tell you a little about myself and my ranger.

well first ill talk about my ranger i have an '03 supercab EDGE 2WD with a flex fuel 3.0 and 4.10 8.8 rear end practically stock except i took out the rear jump seats to add a custom speaker box that was given to me it fits 4 12's but im only running 2 MTX road thunders at the moment and a MTX 250 watt amp its loud enough for me.
my future plans include rear locker, T-bar crank, 32 or 33" tires, new front bumper with winch and skid plate and a camper shell ive got a search and rescue theme/expedition theme in mind for it nothing too fancy just try to make it as functional as i can since i like to do some mild off roading mainly to get to camping sites and driving around the property this is my second ranger my first one was an 84 reg cab long bed 4x4 with custom front and rear bumpers that my pops made out of schedule 80 pipe roll bar(functional) a few inches of lift and a rad tops hard top convertible conversion done in 1992

as for myself i like to do a few of things and that's work on my truck/cars/motorcycles and build guns/ target shoot i currently dug a 29 ford truck chassis and front cowl out of a creek last summer its going on the project list still not sure what direction im gonna go with it but thats enough for now its picture time

heres one of the 84 4x4


heres one of my EDGE


and the speaker box for it

Welcome - another Iowan - there aren't too many of us on here.
Where are you at?

I've always liked the Ranger in Sonic Blue, and yours looks really nice.

You still have the 84?

yea i beat on it quite a bit as did my dad before me, but that thing is sucks to keep up it has the toyokogo transmission and apparently there wernt many in the states with that tranny so getting parts was hard i busted a drive line once and they wanted 800 for one and that was years ago, but i ended up getting one from a buddy. when i do decide to build it im going to put a 4.0 in it and call it good

on another note it was clear today and i got the t bars cranked



5 turns on the bolt and it doesn't have the rake any more
