Default Cochise County's lowest Ranger

After much time away from the forums, I'm glad to be back. I have finally finished the lowering kit on my truck(2"/5" static drop with coils and a flip kit, respectively), stepside conversion is done, and have it on a set of 2000 Model Year steelies. Probably going to go to 17" or 18" wheels in the next year or so. Even though it is mildly dropped, unless proven otherwise, I am claiming the title of Cochise County's lowest Ranger.

Not even god himself can forgive you for what you've done. That truck will haunt my dreams for years to come. Im personally filing a lawsuit with the company who allowed those images to be transferred to the internet. Im also filing a civil suit against you for pain and suffering you caused me by having to look at that monstrosity.

May god have mercy on your soul.

Oh come on, it's his truck. Let him enjoy it.

I like the 'Ugly Truckin' stickers.

My. Oh my. You do have an opinion. Don't you?

Looks like a work in progress to me. Lowering isn't my style. But not everyone has to like what I like. Good luck to the OP. Its going to be a cool ride.

Haha, you guys are great �� That's one of the two opinions I get on it, "I love it because it's unique" or "I hate this because it's hideous". I swapped the stepside onto it because I was really tired of getting pulled over(previous owner got drunk and blasted a ton of bullet holes in the bed). I thought about going through with body work and getting it painted, but the cab has cosmetic damage that's not worth putting the money into, and the donor bed was off of a rolled truck with a tonneau cover, so the fiberglass has damage all over the place. Also, it did look a lot nicer with the old front end on it, my sister crashed my other ranger, so I cannibalized parts off this one to fix the other one. It does live up to the UGLY TRUCKLIN name lol.

Telling a guy his truck is ugly, is like telling a woman her child is ugly.

True, but there are some ugly babies out there, mine just happened to hit every branch on the ugly tree on the way down
Eh, but whatever, it's a work in progress. Since it's ugly, I can beat on it and not worry about the consequences. I take it off road every once in a while(not super hardcore, but the other ranger is way more appropriate where I go), and I live down a dirt road, so I don't have to worry about the occasional scratch or being dirty.

Ugly children exist... Ignoring it doesnt change that. Personally i point out every ugly baby i see and smack the mother in the face for bringing it into public. How else do they learn?
