Good day everyone!
Been poking around TRS for about a year after a friend showed me this gem. Daughter bought 01 Ranger for her first car/truck. Bit of a project and more than we could do together. So almost a year later and now it's my Ranger. Just finished swapping seat rails and getting suspension sorted; time for alignment after everything was replaced. Next up brake lines and parking brake.
Wish me luck!

Welcome, good luck with the project. check in the different areas here if you have questions, or post up. Good luck with the brake lines ( take your time ) there not the easiest to do ( bending/double flare ) not sure if there are pre-bent lines avail. Also save take off pieces, Ford has used different sized fittings/couplers front to rear. And as always Safety First **USE JACK STANDS** ( My neighbor is on crutches now--his K-Mart jack lowered on his leg )**

I'll be browsing thru the forums definitely. The daughter keep the old lines but I'm tempted to check the pick and pull before I try and bend them myself.
My wife is on my ass about using the JACK STANDS and actually gonna be getting another set. The bricks just don't cut it for long! :ROFLMAO:
