My Ranger 3 months and $300 later...

All together I figure I have about $300 in my truck since I bought it. It has come a long way since I bought it. I bought some parts used and some new, and I traded for other parts a few came on the truck, but I am figuring I have about $300 invested in the truck and wanted to show the progress in my build (About 20% done)

2007 Ford Ranger with 18k on it: $9,800
Mods: $300


Mods so Far:
2/3 Roush and DJM Lowering kit
Roush Front and Rear sway bars
Diablosport Predator Tune
K&N/Modded intake
Magnaflow Exhaust
Undercover Bed cover
Street Scene hidden hitch
1 piece Project/halo headlights
04-05 4wd chrome/mesh grill
Shorty antenna
Painted stock 15x7 wheels

The day I bought it: (Stock suspension)

I really don't like 2wd trucks, but it looks really nice!
I have been thinking that I want to do something like that if I get work in the gulf of Mexico, where I would need another car while I'm on my hitch. Something inexpensive, reliable, familiar and easy to work on.

i have to admit i didnt like the look of your last truck, but this is clean and cant be denied. maybe grab 2 cans of fusion gloss black and go to town on that front bumper, unless you got it on purpose to not deal with chips
