Ranger Replacement

yea, yall read right....i sold my ranger and did the full size mod....just came time for and in need of a full size truck....sold her for $11,000 and i couldnt really turn it down at that price.

and i know i am going to get ragged on for what i got to replace it but it was a good deal considering the mods and all and its a super nice truck....i really wanted a newer f150 but just couldnt afford one right now...maybe in a few years or so

the replacement:
(6" susp, 3" body, 37x13.50 toyo m/ts, 18x9 eagle alloy 197's, 4.88 gears, kenwood full audio system, power everything, 5% tint, toolbox)

Looks good.

I agree about the wheels. The 5.3 isn't what I'd call a little motor though.

If you like it, that's all that matters. I like the truck, but if you can't afford new wheels it's not the end of the world

I like the 5.3's. My friend has an 03 Z71 sierra with the 5.3 and dual corsa exhaust and shes FAST for a truck.

I'd take that for sure, I even like the wheels. Looks like a good trade up, even if it is a chevy.

wheels look alot better in person trust me!...ive pleased with the trade up and yes the 5.3 is a stout motor for sure...its a step up from the ranger IMO

ride quality is 2 times better than my ranger and it is just more comfortable in general inside and all which i what i need at this time....who knows i may buy another ranger in the future and start on another build project...im still very much a ford guy!!!

Wheels aren't that bad. Look pretty good on that truck. If i had a choice they wouldn't be my first choice. Other than that the truck is pretty badass for a Chevy.
