Newb from Guelph, Ontario

hey everyone, I've been on the forums for a little bit now but I've never introduced myself.
I have an 02 FX4 Ranger I purchased from someone whom I think was a member on these forums. It's jacked up on 35's, All fairness the damn truck has been a lemon for me. Hell today I just put a hole through the rear diff. I dont do much offroading with it anymore since it's become sort of my daily driver. i still absolutly love the truck I just wish it would stay in one peace lol.

Welcome to RF!!

Nice looking truck. What wheel/tire combo are you running?

Also, did you dent or crack your differential cover?

Don't think the rims are name brand, as for the tires they're BFG TA' Mud terrain's 35x12.5 R15. With a +15 offset. Very aggressive as far as stance goes.
As for my diff I blew a hole in the casing. No clue how, but ill know more when I pull it apart this weekend.

I know the previous owner used to skim this site for parts and what not that's how I was directed to it. We have a few nice rangers in the area. Not too many 4x4's though. Everytime I went trailing I was always the oddball out lol.

I've been up your way a couple times. I've got family in rockwood. Me and the girlie did a rockwood/Guelph/Erin/area road trip a few years back.

What's all done to the truck? Can't quite tell from the pics but wondering if that's the double lifted on that I saw on Kijiji a while back...

Thanks everyone, yeah I was born and raised in rockwood.

As for the truck......what I know about it (I'm not to technical when it comes to trucks) It has a 3'' body lift and the torsens have been cranked about 2.5''.

I've owned it for about a year now, I had it listed on kijiji a few months back, so it's possible you saw my listing. I'm looking at getting a fully size truck to to haul a car trailer around.

Must be a different one... the black one I was thinking of had a Superlift and body lift. Good looking truck either way!
