Lariat's "Blend"

I'm going to apologize, the first few posts are going to be generic posts from my other build threads, but it gets the point across on my little mods here and there, that gives my ranger it's uniqueness!

My journey to ranger fever started on November 2nd at around 6:20 pm. I was making a run to my girlfriends house to pick her up to see "Bad Gandpa." I have yet to see it. About 3/4 of the way to her house I hit a deer. No i didn't have my ranger at the time, but i had a very clean 2006 mustang. Not a GT, nothing fancy, but still cool for a 17 year old to have bought and paid for. Pic for reference

I loved that car and enjoyed every minute of having it. Although the buck that has yet to be found thought otherwise. leaving me with this twisted pile of steel and sadness.

It totaled the car, and ruined my ego. Well, after a month of looking, i had decided to try and buy an 89 bronco to 7.3 swap. But, that didn't work out. With a pocket full of cash, and in a buying mood i saw my ranger sitting at a car dealership and told my father to pull in. Well, about an hour later, my father and I left. We left with a new toy. My toy. 2002 Sonic blue ranger. Powered by the 4.0 SOHC, and backed with a 5r55e and an automatic t-case.

Well, now my pockets were empty, but my mustangs stall was filled. Not having and real plans for it, I joined and under my screen name "lariat." So many ideas, thoughts, and images have came to mind after seeing so many Rangers, Lifted, lowered, and leveled. I have an image in mind, but i have a long way to go before I get to it.

The list of completed mods now are simple, but are still mods.
#1 CD/casset player out of an FX4
#2 Mustang dome light
#3 Ford puddle lights
#3 Torsion bar crank. (Needs MOAR lift!)
#4 Black 16x8 d-spoke rims with -6mm offset wrapped in 265-75x16 Cooper Discoverer AT-3's
#5 'sploder OHC.

Here's how it sits as of march 27th.

Feel free to compliment, add ideas, and offer advice!
