Thanks man, keep in mind I started with an 800 dollar ranger and built up from there. It just takes work. Everytime I sell one part of the money goes back to the house or christmas or something and the rest is reinvested...

Well I did a little this evening after we went to dinner right after work. I finished painting the frame, then I got rid of the tracktor muffler(I still have to get a coupling for the front because the pipes were off an extended cab), and sat the bed back on it. Watch for some progress over the weekend!

Well I got the bed all bolted on, rear bumper, tails, and tailgate handle out back. Got the flares painted and installed and the front bumper is what I was working on. Thought I'd take a couple pics before dark.

Thanks Cody. Yeah I intended to paint the bumper green but ran out of green paint so I just used some black I had. Sorry to all the flag mirror haters, I don't have another set of mirrors that are not power and I'm not going to buy them because it will probably be for sale next week...lol

Looks awesome man, paint the bumper to match the flare and you'll be set. Nothing wrong with the flag mirrors I'm rocking them proudly.

I haven't got around to doing some buffing and major cleaning but I took a few pics this evening. As far as progress, yesterday I polished up a set of center caps and installed them. I also sprayed a little undercoating on the seams in the bed and installed the bedliner(still dirty). Tonight I vacumned down the a/c and installed the a/c control in the dash, to my suprise when I started adding freon the compessor kicked right in and it works great...awesome! Anyway here's a few pics...

I think the t-bars need a little crank too seems like too much rake. But I do like the paint but color matched flares and bumper would have been better if you had more paint.

Yeah cranking the bars a little is onthe list. I agree on the color match...except the mudflaps would look weird green
