  3. Ranger 15 & 17

    I read posts daily but don't post alot. Just thought I'd share. As you can tell by my sig I have been messing with Rangers for a while. I bought number 15 rolled and did a body swap. The gold body I bought without a title and the truck had a reconstructed title anyway so I did a quick swap...
  4. Body swap/lowering question

    I'm not sure you can go by frame length, wheelbase would be more of a concern. Production 1983–1988 Wheelbase 107.9 in (2741 mm) 113.9 in (2893 mm) 125 in (3175 mm) Length 175.6 in (4460 mm) 187.6 in (4765 mm) 192.7 in (4895 mm) Width 66.9 in (1699 mm) Production 1989–1992 Wheelbase...

    I picked up this project truck and will be painting it soon, probably next week. I would like to keep some green (not likely to be the same shade)because of the jamms/engine compartment,... anything goes.

  9. Some new paint & some buffing!

    I finally got the project truck painted. Unfortunatley the paint didn't come out as good as I would have liked it. Usually I don't have to do much buffing but this time I either had to buff or repaint due to a few runs and orangepeel...#$@%$#@ As painted I use 1000 grit on runs...
  10. NEED HELP!!! 02 Ranger Airbags deployed! Replace What?

    On a 2002 truck the sensor is in the airbag controller under the center console, it will need replaced. Air bag deployment shouldn't cause it not to start. It could be the fuel inertia switch on the inside of the fiewall near the kick panel on the ps. There is a reset on it.

  13. Next-picked up another 2000

    I picked up this wrecked 2000 yesterday. Plans are to put it on an edge frame and convert it to 4wd as funds allow. The front is wrecked so I have to decide what year I want it to look like. Here is the only pick right now but I will add some more.
  14. Air bag question

    Does anybody know if I can use 2004 air bags with a 2000 controller? Even if you know where I can get information on air bags maybe I can find an answer. I want to use newer air bags for the newer look(plus I already have them) TIA John
