My over time build.

Well im doing a build that just goes over time so heres some progress pics and whats been done.

1993 Ranger 3.0 5spd XLT got it for 900 bucks which isnt too bad.

Here are pics from the first day i owned it. I put the deck in since i needed to listen to my ipod.

About a week and a half ago me and my buddy kyle took a adventure out to hillsville pa. A old abandon quarry with TONS of trails around it and a big *** quarry to fish and swim in. Here are some pics from there.

Who said 2wd cant go in mud?

Well havent updated this in a while. Floor is done and looks amazing. All interior except seats are in. Bed is off, Tank is dropped and hangers are hopefully going on tomorrow. Also frame and other parts are painted now to protect them.

Interior is all back in and seats are in too and it looks oem. I need someone help or opinion though....

I just bought a sun pro temp gauge today and plan on getting a oil pressure one too. The thing is i have no clue were to run the lines through the fire wall so there isnt any tight points that can break the lines. I already removed the old temp gauge out of the water neck and have the adapter in.

Also how would i set up the oil psi one?

And for the wiring,do i splice into the dimmer switch power?

UPDATE with out pictures.......

Got a text from my buddy asking me if i wanted to buy his jeep...

Its a 1993 red xj 4 door. 4wd. Auto "sigh 5spd is better" and has 180+ but was maintained and runs A+!

It has a newer radiator,thermostat,waterpump,idler pulley and serp belt.

It has the front doors off,stock wheels and ****,gutted carpet with some holes and a jvc stereo.

So i ask how much and when i got the response i yelled holly ****!

$300 bucks. He got it for free and wants the money for the parts,it drives fine as i drove it a ton recently.

So im going to grab it this week,and the ranger will be my project till around Christmas or spring. And than it will be my dd as the college im going to next august has a off road club and preffers you have a trail rig you can build which is what the jeep will be.

Cause my truck still needs new front leaf mounts,gas tank straps,filler tube,all new shocks. So its going to be down for a while while its built.
