Ok so I bought my truck about 2 months ago off craigslist for $1500. It was all stock, with no stero and 150,000 miles. It is a 1991 Ranger STX.
Its a 4.0l V6, manual 4x4.


Here is what it looked like when I bought it:



The first upgrade I did was to install a reciever deck. I picked up a sony Xplod deck and its been working great so far.


A few weeks after I got it I put some 31X10.50 procomp xtreme all terrains on it:



Next I scored a protech aluminum light bar on craigslist for $75! Also I installed a PA 2'' body lift at the same time.





My latest update was to throw out the shitty auto hubs and put on some brand new WARN locking hubs.


Here is how the truck looks as of 4-2-09



Here is a preview of the part I am putting in this weekend

Ya I hate it to, but baby steps lol, I want to at least get out and play with my truck again before my next mod. Its either going to be new front bumper, or, one piece drive shaft and rework my exhaust.

Well wprked a bit more on the truck... Hahnsb2 helped me install a aero turbine 2525 muffler and have the exhaust exit before the tire, I really like it. Notched the rear a little bit for the tip as well.

Pics and video to follow soon.
