I just joined TRS a little while ago so I figured id start a build thread. I bought the truck in December 2013 completely stock and have done the following:
3" body lift, 2" T bar lift, belltech lift shackles, 33x12.5 Duratracs on 15x10 Ion Alloys, Flowmaster Super 44, Sway bar delete, Headlight mod, 06+ tails Niteshaded, Two 5.5" 100w lights behind grill, airbox mod, Drop in K&N filter, Throttle cable mod, Fog light mod, 8" Bazooka sub, Bull bar Poplock.

I think that's about it.

Here is when I bought it


And now


Still have lots planed for the truck so I'll keep this thread updated

Normally not a fan of bodylifts but yours looks good :icon_thumby:

Did you buy those headlights from somewhere or did you do them yourself?

Nice Ranger, I like your new head lights and you did a great job painting the throttle body cover.

My credo
Curb? What curb, I felt a speedbump
Gotta say, I love your truck, it is almost the spitting image of what I have in mind for mine (except I want mine to be blue) I even wanted to paint the throttle body cover and a couple other parts of the engine
Do you have any tips for someone who wants to learn how to weld? I understand the concept but am lost on where to start

Sorry I haven't been on here in a while, if you are just doing light duty stuff a flux core welder is a good cheap start, once you start welded you catch on pretty quick, YouTube and google always helps to.

Since I havnt been on in a while I should update this

I cute raised and rewelded the hitch to sit higher for the body lift


Painted all the plastic trim


Rancho rs 5000 shocks


Modded the tow hooks to fit with the body lift


Cb radio, I used the visor clip screws to fasten a piece of flat bar and attached the cb to that so I didn't have to drill into the headliner. And welded up a rear mount for the whip


I thinks that's it, oh and I have 06+ power mirrors In the garage, just need to install them
