Default Morgan's 2004 Ford Ranger Build

this truck has changed so much over the yea and a half ive owned it. its never been to the shop for any mods, ive done all of the work myself. this thread is copied from FRF but since itll all be here, you wont have to scroll through 13 pages to see it.

My 2004 Ford Ranger XL

This is the day I got it (may 22, 2010), a birthday gift from my parents, believe me, I had to work for it. Haha.


It came with a shell, but that came off the same day I got it. Also that same day I put in a bedliner and bed trim, in black.

Later in the summer I bought a roll bar for it, and put Hella 500FF lights on top.

I found some fog lights and decided to put them on the bumper.


I decided I like the look of the Hella’s behind the grille so in November I placed an order for an XLT Honeycomb grille. I made custom brackets for the lights and it turned out beautifully. Theres also a “How To:” by me on FRF.


New Rims!! Pro Comp Series 152


Replaced the OEM cd player for this Sony Xplode with AUX


Hooked a Sony Xplode 12in. Up to it and that sucker hit hard! Click for the vid.

Traded the sub and box for a smaller sub, and a GPS.




Mustang dome!


Pioneer Door speakers

MORE MODS TO COME!!!

Did somebody say lift??

ITs on! COIL SPACERS!!!

Wow it's come a long way! Since you have the chrome theme going, you should throw the stock hub caps back on there. Just snap them back on the stock lug nuts. Also, how tall do your tires actually measure?
