Dylans 03 edge build thread lots of pics

First off a little back story on my ranger i got it late august 2010, bought it from my aunt for the big sum of $1300....what was the catch right? lol they said that it was parked in the feild a few years back because it "just stopped running". i had the truck towed to a junkyard that i was working at over that summer and got it running for about two minutes and it siezed up. the culprit no maintence and was beat to death. the bed was dented pretty badly and the rear door on the drives side was kicked in. mirrors were broken off just a big mess...




then came a bed and door from a 99.

getting ready to pull the engine



cleaned the seats

then swapped them lol

then wheels and tires

few months later i had my exhaust done third cat removed, flowmaster delta 40 SI/DO and three inch tips




then got 06 tails from the girlfriend for xmas.

bout a month later the clutch went so i replaced it drove all day sunday the following monday went to take the gf to school and it blew a head gasket yeay.
soo after looking around for a week or so i bought the 4.0 out of the super dookie ranger (Zack)'s 04 ranger and dropped it in and got it running



now this week was its first big drive (160 miles) to school and not a single problem was happy to be back in my ranger.



what i want to do next would be a hurst short throw shifter, 06+ mirrors, and an sct tune.
let me know what u think about my 03 edge i love it and plan to drive the wheels off it and rebuild it again lol, i love how i know about every bolt on it personally.
