New guy from Florida

Hey guys, have been looking at some other ranger forums and so far this one seems to be the best by far. So far I've seen a lot of pretty badass rangers on here and am looking forward to modding mine more to my taste.

Its a 2002 Ranger Edge 2wd
I got it from a car lot so they don't know all of the facts but they claim its a Fabtech lift kit but the spindles aren't blue and it has lift blocks in the back, not AALs so I'm not sure what lift it is, it does have Fabtech shocks tho.
33" Procomp Xterrain (HORRIBLE on the street, Terra Grapplers are on order)
16" American Racing Fuel wheels
Billet grill
Westin Safari bar
Hella 1000FF lights
Exhaust with a Flowmaster muffler (non mandrel bent, crappy)
Pioneer HU and speakers


The real wheels don't have enough offset so I think I am going to order something like these to put on, not sure on the width Im going to get them yet tho. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/WHEEL...spagenameZWDVW

Upgrades coming soon are,
Tint (this weekend)
Terra Grapplers
Spacers
A step bar
New Pioneer HU
A small single sub setup
Train horn
Possilbly different flares
New exhaust
K&N panel filter
Explorer OHC
Painting wheels all black maybe?

Nope, his name is Elon and hes in Clearwater. Found out that somehow one of the keys kept the spare key (I only have 1 key) and one of them took off the train horn

Howdy. Welcome to the site. I used to live in West Palm Beach, so you;re not to far from where I grew up. Truck looks good man. The lift blocks in the rear that you mentioned, if 2" are stock. The Edge, the model you have, come stock with them.

if you ever need me, youd hafta email me [email protected] im not really on here too much, ive been spending a lot of time on the turbo forums. plus i know paint ball is getting a lot bigger now, if any of you guys play let me know. we have somewhat of a team and are always looking to play at yamato and 441

Ok, so I just searched and found that Cliff guy and was looking at his threads and I guess he was the original owner of the truck. I know the previous owner before me is the one who did the lift and wheels/tires and stuff to it (who I found on here and talked to on Myspace). Crazy, I found the past 2 owners of my truck on here.

The tires are being changed soon, the wheels are staying for a little bit. The back tires are worn nice but the fronts are worn unevenly. I wouldn't recommend buying them from me, you can probably find some local to you on here, http://www.floridajeepers.net/viewforum.php?f=10
