Project Ranger

First off, if you are not interested in mini trucks or customization of them, please do not post or trash talk in this thread.

As some of you all know, the wifey bought a project truck. Her brother's started but not anywhere near finished Ranger. Well, finally had the airbag suspension finished and the new (sitting in a box for 5 years new) rims installed with some new rubber wrapped around them. Intros Twisted Vistas 19s up front and 20s in the rear with 245/35 Goodyear F1 tires. The interior is still totally stripped out except for the seats. We are planning to have a full stock floor body drop done (totally new frame up build) over this winter with the body shaved smooth next summer.

Here are some pics of how it sits now aired down. Trans crossmember needs to be replaced, too low. And all four tires hit the inside of the inner wheel wells and will be cut out in about a week hopefully.

Not too shabby. I dropped a 347 in a '95 ranger for a friend. He had it lowered, c notched.. and the whole bit.

Lost control of it at 130+. Never saw the outcome.

Thanks Dirk.

Nice, except for the wrecking it part.

This one still has the stock 4 cyl 5 speed. Its a 2000 model with only 38,000mi on it. Has a full step notch for now with Firestone bags all around. I'll have to get a pic of the rear with the 4 link and all.

We are talking about dropping in one of the 4.6 Cobra motors. Except Maintain is pushing me to drop a 6.0 PSD into it!!

I told him I wouldn't drop a mod motor in it. tooooooooo much hassle at the time, and now. The motor is pretty wide, it's shallow, but fat.


Now any windsor block works well. I mocked up an old 351C I had laying around, but he would go for it. "too much money".

Eric.. I'm with Marty!!!

Don't know how much you've done the back end, but if you are gonna c-notch the frame, etc for a deep drop, then go ahead and do a back-half, narrow it while you are at it. Swap in a 9", and a good tuneable 4-link.

As light as that truck is, a 6.0 wouldn't need much in mods to make is scary fast!!!

looks good eric, i agree a motor swap to a diesel would be cool, but rather costly, a 4.6 would be alot easier to install, alot less cash , and with dual exhaust would sound good, and would still be very fast with the weight it has to pull , which isnt alot

beautiful truck. Your choice of appointments was very tastful, or did she make the choices?<smile>
Why not put a small diesel engine in her like a b3 cummins or a Ford lehman, perkins marine engine? Would re......Hey, there is a great little Ford tractor diesel that was made from the early sixties to 1975? That little engine would go forever on a gallon of D.
Can't band mouth Ranger's they are the ebst little trucks ever built.
