Default The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly Build

Here is my Ranger, Tuco, fresh off the trailer. August '09.

First thing I did was take the bed off.

Then paint it

And lower it


More later

Got a history behind the truck, personal experiances, why you got it, etc.....?

What lowering kit did ya go with? Have to say wish my frame wasnt rustd or I would paint it. What are the future plans for the truck?

OK. The theme of the truck is The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly old school shop truck. I had the idea for this in 2008 and it took almost a year to find the right truck. The truck could not be from around here(rust belt) and I needed a good foundation. I went to all truck Carlisle 2009 and found my truck...$400.00 To look more old school the factory lights had to go...all of them. Round headlights, f100 markers, 78 Ford truck rear tails. Worn out paint and red smoothies, dog dish caps, and white walls. Good, Bad, and Ugly means guns, bullets, explosives, and Mexican blankets. More to come guys!
