Sometimes bigger can be better. Sometimes you just want to build something ridiculous for the fun of it. Even if it’s not practical to use every day. Forum member ‘parkrangerjeremy’ did just that. He had a 1993 Ford Ranger 4×4 that had a 6-inch lift, 3-inch body lift, and 35-inch Bogger tires, but he wanted […]

Darren Parsons posted his Ford Ranger project in our forum back in 2012. A lot has changed since then. Like many projects, they are always evolving.
