Hi, I am a new member, although I think once upon a time I was a member, but any way I have 1987 Ranger Extended Cab, 5.0 5 speed that I build about 18 years ago and still have. It is my toy that stays under cover most of the time unless weather is nice.

My credo
Toonces drives a Ranger . . . . just not very well.
NICE truck! Is that a gray, or silver color on the paint, and what kind of wheels are those?

Don't know if you can tell, but I REALLY like how good this truck looks. Bet it scoots, too.

Thanks for comments
It is PPG Dove Gray I painted it about 16 years ago.
The wheels are 2001 Mustang 17" wheels.
It gets around pretty good 5.0 with World Windsor heads/edelbrock intake/roller rockers/T5/mustang tri-y headers.
Suspension is lower i beams with lowering blocks on rear with Bronco II rear sway bar.
A lot of fun to drive. I have about 60k miles on conversion.
