Camodown Ranger Update

For some reason I got motivated to start working on my ranger the last month or so and this is what I've done. Supercharger is still sitting on the shelf.

First thing was I installed a manual transfer case and different floor console.

Moved the cb into the ashtray spot

I then ordered 2 winches. A 9,500# Smittybilt XRC with synthetic for the bumper and a 4,500# champion to go out the back as an emergency. I also swapped it to synthetic. My rear winch comes from behind the license plate so I had to make a bracket

Then I had to cut my winch opening back open since it has been plated

Well you're prepared for anything now. And I love the transfer case, of course.

Love how clean the setup is, nice work. Did you just have the stock alternator before the 230a?

I bought the alternator from a member but it is Singer alternators and the contact I was given was Mike. This is what he said about it.
The upgraded unit that I offer for your vehicle is a 230A. This alternator is a direct bolt on design for your vehicle and would be plug and play (the factory plug would go into it like the OEM unit) I include my overdrive pulley to boost the idle output (this will spin the alternator faster at low RPMS to boost idle output by around 30 to 40A more.
All the big 3 stuff I ordered from a company called KnuKonceptz thru Amazon. That 1/0 wire they sell is amazing stuff. It is actual size and crazy flexible. Almost like a rope.
But I got 20' of red and black which is overkill but I wanted extra.
Inline waterproof fuse holder with 250 amp fuse
There triple 1/0 battery terminals
1/0 red and black ring terminals

This was before the winches were hooked up but they went into the left over slot.

Truck is looking good!

I'm glad you listed off that stuff for the big 3. I'm wanting to do that soon and saw the KnuKonceptz stuff on Amazon, but hadn't heard much one way or the other to make me decide.

Pretty easy to do. I'm not sure why some people go through all the extra effort of removing the oem wiring. You just add to it cause electricity will take the path of least resistance. Then for some reason I get a spike and blow the inline fuse I still have the oem stuff to keep me going. My oem positive is still hooked up but I had to tape off the oem negative cause I didn't have room.

Yeah double lot. He has a standard two car on his house as well. He has a couple classics in there. Don't know if he built the house or not but I'm guessing whoever did had an RV or something cause it doesn't have an upper loft or anything. I wish I had it as well.

Don't come in here with your negative thoughts lol

I do have one of the anchors that dig but those never seem to work right when you need them too. That's why the wife was on standby with the super duty
