I like!! Sounds like a build I'd love to get my hands on one day. Looooooooove the aux gauges!! I might have to steal that idea for my chevy.

ok so it doesnt look like much but i spent 7 hours today going through the wiring harness removing things i didnt need like the heating wires the dash cluster wires the radio wires and i extended some wires as well so the only things that will be in the engine bay are the things that have to be... everything else will be nicely hidden under the dash...

I would cut the raised floor out of the bed and build one that hugs everything mounted on the frame. That way you could run a tonneau cover and get some use back out of the bed.

Unless theres no room, because that **** is low. Nice.

Looks good for sure. Goofy to me why they would build a nice Ranger like that and then just rip it apart, down to what's in the first pictures. Oh well. Can't wait to see more progress. Keep us posted.
