Are you going to swap out the wheels and tires before you sell it?

Nice 60/40 delete! Good find bud, just watch your coolant level with that engine. If it drops over a short time you might check your intake manifold gaskets. Mine are bad with this engine, and the last one blew because of leaky IM gaskets. Good luck though bud, it looks like a really nice truck!

nice, good choice on loosing the ricer tails, look forward to seeing what you do with it, your silver rig was one of my favorites on the ranger sites for the past few years.

your speechless... try ripping apart a vehicle you built with your own 2 hands and tell me it isnt painful... yes it took years to make that way.. brought it back to normal 95% that is, in a weeks time... sad really sad....

one day i will go south and find a twin of it and build a twin.. something less rust and less salt belt distroyed.. thus why alot of parts are removed and will be kept safe for later use....

like rare parts that took years to find..

Actually I do know that feeling I tore apart my 98.

I didnt know what u were going with this truck but if you do change your mind let me know it really does change the look on the gen 4 front end for the better

Dang Zach I never thought I'd see the day the silver truck got replaced, but I can understand when it's time to move on. The new truck looks great and I'm sure it'll be just as a nice as the silver truck! Have fun building it and I'm looking forward to seeing the outcome.

I didnt say you did just politely declined ... i actually like the 4x4 grill alot.. if anything i would put the SS grill inserts in it. only thing i really liked besides stock..

yes and that feeling sucks... had to stop quite a few times and just go inside couldnt believe what i was doing...

its gonna take some time to turn this one into something i like. as of now i am just content with it.. not like my silver truck where i will always have a spot for it..

hell if i dont like this truck i will flip it and get some other one....

black really isnt my thing we will see, the price i picked it up for i looked passed it being black
