Well I did the F-150 Mod today....

jk...I got her all cleaned up and thought I would show some progress on my 2001 Ford Ranger Edge




2005 Superduty Break Lamp...looked brand new when I got it off ebay for $10 shipped

Grab Handles installed

05 60/40 seats installed. It's so nice to have back support again...

03 Gauge Cluster for manual...really tough to find with cruise and not an auto or 4x4

My Wingnut project...I recently installed thicker padding and wow did it make the ride a lot quieter.

OHC console shot just to show off.


I pulled the 2.5" blocks out that I had in there from the FX4 Level 2 and put in 08 blocks. I want to install my chevy shackles and then crank the t-bars again.

The lid is going in to be painted on the second week of June when I leave town on a trip.

Let me know what you guys think.

I must admit that the 4x4 X-cab bug is really biting hard these days...

Looks good. I was about to jump all over you for getting rid of the Ranger. Not because getting a f-150 is bad, but because everybody is getting one and selling the Ranger.

LoL that's why I did it but I'm not getting very many comments so I don't think people are even opening the thread.

You sure it's not your Canadian monitor? lol

The pictures were taken around noon and if you use the objects outside of the truck as reference levels the colors are actually pretty close to real life. My monitor may be calibrated differently though. My truck and car (E4) both look red/orange when it's really bright out.

I was a little disappointed when I opened the thread, but you have a great looking truck!
As much as I hate the (lack of) cab room, I love the regular cab 4x4's.

Ride quality. (Tbars had to be cranked which made it ride too stiff)

Thanks. I have been on the lookout for a low mileage 4x4 4.0 X-cab 5 speed for about a year now. That's a tough truck to find.
