Default 1989 Corba Ranger

I have had my 1989 Ranger XLT for 4 years now but is the first time posting it online.Have lots of mods in the past year started off with the suspension lowering it with Djm dream beams and bbk springs thicker sway bar up front and bell tech shocks with flip kit in the rear and cal-trac traction bars. Then i decided to due the interior since i was short on cash at the time. Ended up get ting 04 ranger 2 tone blk/grey bench seat, redoing my headliner,94 explorer visors,upgrading to power windows and a nice momo jet steering wheel plus a kicker sound system.Money came in and swapped the 2.9 for a 97 expo 302 motor/trans due to wanting more power. I'm running the stock headers with no cats with SLP loudmouth mufflers the neighbors don't like those.Swapped out the weak rear end shortly after with an 8.8 tru-trac posi and 4:10 gears working great with the explorer trans gearing.Then i did a full respray shaving the mirror and tail gate holes and adding a custom made cervinis mach 1 hood and pace edwards retractable cover. I ended up getting stock 94 gt mustang wheels and sanding/polishing the lips then painting the center to go for the 93 cobra r look. Thinking of trying to get a supercharger next but not sure how to accomplish that. Hope u guys like more pics to come.

I like it, not a big fan of those wheels but they work. A set of Cobra wheels would look nice on it. Maybe even with a little wider stance.

I love the hood on your truck and I like the way you painted the wheels and polished the edges. Nice steering wheel choice too! You have a great looking Ranger. I was with my Dad when he bought a new Ranger in 1989, I've always liked the boxy body with the flush head lights. I added the tailgate dress up panel to my dads 89, I paint the main part of the panel black then put a tape stripe in the groove and left the edge bright then installed a 82 Mustang GT hood scoop and Magnum 500 wheels. It was a great truck that went more than 325K with no problems, The only thing that ever broke on the truck was the parking brake cable and clutch. My dad towed a boat that was too much for the 2.3L stock clutch, it didn't wear out the metal just broke on two clutches , so I replaced it with a Ford Motorsport clutch and never had another problem with it. The thing that stopped that poor Ranger was a Chevelle hitting it head on.

I'm normally not a fan of street trucks but this is just pure awesome. I like the fact that its not too flashy, borderline subtle.

Brother without a doubt you've got the baddest street truck on The Ranger Station. Some folks might argue my opinion but the 1st and 2nd Generation Rangers have always been my favorite and yours is the best one I've seen yet. And unlike most other folks I'm a big fan of the wheels, Lol.
