Yeah, they sure are ... If my blue Ranger had a 4.0 SOHC in it, I'd sell the black one in a heart beat.

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".
Yeah, It was fun ... I've actually met 4 of the members on here now, so hopefully my creeper status has changed ... lol

Well, I met John back in January and I met Chris and Brian(Auto) this weekend.
And yes, you're one of the four, you're actually the only one on here that I've met from Kentucky. There's not really any Kentucky meets or atleast none that I know of anyway.
I think most people from KY meet in Knoxville or Indianapolis.

It still has the stock cam. I was just kidding about it having too much power and putting a smaller cam in there. It's very weak, but I just need to have a lot of patience and just realize that it's going to take about 45 second to reach 55 MPH.

My 98 has 3.73's and it has plenty of power to get around. Had 4.10's in the 04 I had and it had plenty of power with 33's.

Well I can... I'm glad that GD truck is outa my garage now!...lol JK

It was a nice project. One of the best things about what I do is the accomplishment gained by all the work. With this truck it really shows because of the dramatic improvement in appearance. It took a long time to do but it was a major project. Mostly bodywork but some wiring and interior work also. Not to mention Brian did a good bit of work before he brought it up. He had already did the frame swap and replace the core support and some of the wiring. All in all it one nice little truck and it can't really be valued as a 99 even though thats what the title is. Enjoy the truck Brian! Now I have to jump into something else...
