Indian's Project Log

I guess I should of started one already..

1993 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 5spd



low mileage on her

when I first got the truck it was barely drivable so first thing was a tune up and more.

today I rewired the rear of the truck tail, brake and reverse lights..

there were no license plate lights to I had to go buy some and then install and wire them,

while I was at it I got a bully tailgate net and installed it



my shift bushing kit came in today so I started on that

was a fairly straight forward install, she shifts like a new truck now..

one problem the truck had with the 2" BL was that the hole in the floor I could see the ground and the cup holder just flopped around.

I took 2 pieces of leather put an X in the center made a frame and covered the hole in the floor, then the boot and cup holder didn't fit right..

so I turned the boot around cut the front lip off the cup holder and got her installed..





now she shifts like a dream and there is no noise or other crap coming in, specially the cold this winter ..

let me know what you think of my modification..

well that's all so far,

more next week..

Indian

Bumper raised, now to start making the skid plate..



**note** manual hubs :P

Bumper assembly





got the mounts all slotted so I can raise or lower as needed, surprisingly this is a well constructed bumper for a stock ford part lol

more pics later after I get the rear bumper & tires mounted

if anyone is looking for a nice rear tube bumper, this is a stock for splash part, the guy I know has 2 more left, I paid $123 shipped to my door..

luckily our state uses sand and not salt during our winters, cars from MN or SD look like hell for the same age..


dad taught me years ago, to take a drill and put a few small holes in the bottom of the door to help it drain..

Clinton sent me some killer stickers, it's been 0 outside so I had to figure a way to apply them without the cold screwing it up,

a heating pad and blow dryer worked perfect..

on with some pics..

Clinton sent me 3 and I don't have a tailgate so I thought I'd be creative..

let me know what you think..

needs some non-flag style mirrors. you should color match the grille to. that would look clean.
