Doors look great! a suggestion on the bumper though. fill in all the welds a little more so you can grind them down flush and it will look 2309x better.

Thats a lot of welding and I honestly like the look that its 3 different bars. It it looked solid I dont think itd look as good... Its just my opinion tho...

I also had some vinyl laying around so that got riveted on for some door panels.. mainly to get rid of the nastiness of the inside of the door...

Anybody have any good ideas of how to make these easy to put on and remove... I was thinking of some sort of snap on like how tonneau covers go on or maybe just Velcro...

Damn, that is a nice Ranger. Like everyone else I love the Generation 1 and 2. I grew up around them and I own one. This is a nice build up, and this has really inspired me since my floorboard is rusting out! :D

Well I blew out my pinion bearing in my 8.8 so while i have the axle out I decided it's time to get rid of that cheap plastic diff cover so I decided to make my own.

The cover isn't really all that beefy compared to aftermarket ones but its a lot better then the factory plastic crap....

Thanks for the compliments though...

Ya the windows came stock... It's technically an STX and it was fully loaded with everything... I have slowly been getting rid of all the comfort features... It no longer has power windows and locks, no more power lumbar and side bolsters, no more functional A/C, etc....

I'd trade if you were closer... I hardly ever open those windows anyway, especially with my half doors on... the little extra window doesn't do much.. lol

Well since i have half doors and I can't always make it out side in time to put my window inserts in before it starts raining, I wanted to get a set of seats that I don't have to worry about getting wet so I got some plastic racing buckets. I put these in around mid summer and just haven't gotten around to posting pictures of them.

Well I'm ditching the spare tire carrier in my bed and this is the inspiration for the new tire carrier

TireGate - PreRunner Series

Here is the progress so far. I am having it function like a tailgate instead of a swing out and instead of mounting it to the bed, I am mounting everything to my bumper because it seems like it will be stronger that way. It will also be able to mount both both ways like the one on that site.

It will be nice to finally have usable bed space again. with my old tire carrier my bed was basically useless.
