No thanks ... I'll stick with the 2WD ... lol ... I hardly ever put my black Ranger into 4WD.
Same here, but it's nice knowing its there if you need it!! I bought mine with intentions of it being a toy and low and behold that following winter we saw the most snow here we have seen in the last 10 years! Funny how things work out.

WOW ... 3 coats of each ... but that's what I wanted. I'm glad there wasn't any runs ... there must have been a pro at the end of that paint gun.

Same thing happened to me last year. I converted my 2000 to 4wd and then we got hit with 2 feet of snow in February.

Well, That would just depend on the size of your house. I think he charges around $20 a sq ft.

That bedliner looks good ... Line-X has some competition now ... or maybe you should become a
Line-X dealer or Rhino dealer.
The valence looks a lot better painted black too. I would paint the one on my other Ranger if the bumper wasn't already painted black.

Yeah it looks a lot better black. I got the bed bolted back down and put back together. The usps left me a note they have your box at the PO with the parts you sent, I'll pick it up in the morning. I wanted to get the harness installed befor putting on the bumper.

Oh good ... I'm glad the packages arrived. I was worried about them, because one of them has my license plate in there.

Holy Crap you do Great body work. Truck looks great. Also one touch that would be great is the 04 fog light valiance.

Truck looks completely different and I would never even guess that that truck used to be a 99. No one would believe you if you ever which I hope you do not but if you decide to sell I dont think anyone would believe its a 99

Well Brian came and got the truck today and is on the way home with it(back to Kentucky). Finished up the little things and ended up having a mini meet. Chris stopped down as well as the other Brian (axle on the forum) While I had some help we pulled the cap off of #26...Here's a few rainy day pics. Sorry the pics didn't come out better..

It's all good, everyone knows how good it looks when it's clean. The interior was really clean though, I don't see how you keep those seats lookin like that.

Hey John,

Did we have another earthquake? ...lol
I finally made it back home after taking a detour. There was a landslide that covered up Hwy. 2!
The truck feels like a luxury car with the auto trans and the coil spring suspension. It's like the complete oppisite of my black Ranger. I really like it though and I've already got some complements on the color and the paint job.

X2 ...
I'm going to get a 4X4 valence and install some fog lights later on. I plan on cutting the back tabs off so I can keep my 2WD chrome bumper. I might go with the round 01-03 fog light too. I think the round fog lights look better on a 2WD.

btw ... How's that mirror workin out for ya?

Yeah meets at Johns are always fun. With the all Rangers though parking is a pain.

Where are your 3 Rangers parked at in that pic? I don't remember seeing that asphalt pad when I was there.

I plan and making another trip down this summer if we have a "meet".
