Well. I figured I might as well do a build thread. Since I like to spend money on my rig. Might as well post bout it.
I will be giving the breakdown of my lovely Ranger.

SO! Backstory right quick.
This truck was bought in my family in 2010. One owner, some old man had it. Barely I believe 50K miles? All stock. Still had the original Ford dealers sticker on the back window. Was awesome. Was ugly as sin too. Fiberglass camper shell. My dad used it to drive to work in PA (Mind y'all, we're in podunk BFE Florida). It was a work truck. He ended up lifting it with the help of my little 9-10 year old self on "make sure the truck does not fall on dad" watch. 4" Maxtrac Spindles, 3" body lift kit, blocks on the leaf springs. Made it sit at 7". A 7.5" open ford axle with 4.10 from LKQ. And a set of BF Goodrich 33x10.50r15 with stock plasti dipped wheels. It was a cool little truck. I turned 16(got my permit a year later than usual) and was asked which vehicle I wanted. The 2005 Ranger or our 1993 F250. I had so many memories with my best friend(my father) in that little silver Ranger, that I chose that. I deemed it named Tonto. (After the Lone Ranger). I turned 17, got my license and began driving and building my dream truck.

I am sure there is so much more. I have put my heart and soul into this damn thing. I've done all my own work, with the help of my dad and my hubby. It is my baby. I have a huuuuuge list of plans for this thing. I have only begun. I plan to take this truck to the grave with me and be buried with it.
