Howdy all -

New member here.

I recently picked up a 2000 Ranger Trail head - over all in very nice shape, just in need of some detailing and a little TLC here and there.

I dont have a pic of the front of it at the moment... BUT....

I did find some Ford sales literature on it..

The front of the truck looks exactly like what is shown in the pic below..

since you have 16" wheels,,,, the front steering knuckles from a 2wd 2001 Sport trac bolt right on. they have 12" front rotors and are a big improvement over your 11.25" rotors. if 'ya like to tinker with things

I was thinking the same thing. What's your daily driver.... its a v8 cactus lol. Must make your ass pretty sore riding around. JK. Never heard of the trail head ranger. I can see why since its just a 2wd with bigger tires so it looks like a 4wd. Does it at least have a LS rear end? Shouldn't matter since it has the "extra style" AND a CD radio!!! That thing should be unstoppable with those options! HAHA JK lol
