92 Ranger Build

Don't see a lot of these rolling around anymore unless they are gardening trucks. So i decided to make mine stand out. Gonna slap on a F150 Converison Clip and my new track width when im done will be around 83".
Here is my truck as of now:

A bumper is currently being designed on paper and in a program at the moment i will share some pics of that once i learn how to properly use that damn program.

Also i am going to be redoing a lot of the interior soon. New door panels are on their way, i got tired of the bronco II panels in my ranger so i riped them out. the new ones will be steel.

I will try to update this thread as much as possible in the upcoming weeks and months so subscribe if your interested, or leave comments on the progress.

Good stuff. Get different rims though, I think those ruin your truck.

and i spoke to soon about the cops pulling me over....
So now i have flared front fenders which i didn't want to do...but have to because its illegal to have your front tires sticking out past your fenders too i guess.

Ok so the official date for the engine swap is third week in december during winter break im taking two weeks off of work and going to swap in the 5L should be interesting since we are on a time limit but me and my buddy should be able to bust it out as long as we prepare in the next couple months for it.
