1992 Ford Ranger Expedition Truck

Overlanding (adventure travel) has been gaining popularity, but it has been around for a while. In 2012, forum member ‘Flexfab’ turned his 1992 Ford Ranger in to an ‘Expedition Truck’.

According to Flexfab:

I bought this truck new in 1992 and promptly took it to Baja for 3 months. The truck has been nothing but “Old Faithful”, TTB and all. After wallowing around North America with the worst bump-steer ever engineered into a vehicle, it was time to turn it into a proper camping rig. Just thought I’d share a few of the build shots and some poser finish shots.

Quick List of Modifications:

  • 35 x 17 Pro Comp Extreme MTs
  • 79 full-size Bronco front axle
  • 4.56 gears and an ARB
  • Bilstein 2.5 x 12 coil-overs

As a Ford Ranger enthusiast who enjoys modifying my Ford Rangers for off-road use, I quickly discovered that there wasn’t any websites dedicated to the subject. So in 1999, I created TheRangerStation.com. What started as my own personal desire to help other Ford Ranger owners, has grown into a wealth of online information from numerous contributors. 20-years later, my commitment to the Ford Ranger, and the Ford Ranger community, is as strong as ever.
