Forum member ‘ericbphoto’ (Eric Benner) brought his 1993 Ford Ranger Splash 4×4 to the 20th Anniversary Trail Ride in Ohio, and he was definitely not afraid to wheel it.

One of the trucks that quickly got everyone’s attention at the 20th Anniversary Trail Ride was Jeremy Fitzpatrick’s 1991 Ford Ranger 4×4. What really surprised many of us is that he actually took the Ranger off-road. We’re glad he brought it out for us to enjoy, and pretty cool to actually see him take it […]

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 […]
