Stmitch’s Supercharged 3.0L 2000 Ford Ranger

posted in: 1998-2011 Ford Ranger 2WD | 0

One of the nicest street trucks we’ve had here at The Ranger Station has been this 2000 Ford Ranger owned by forum member ‘stmitch’. It’s a very clean and tastefu build featuring a DJM dropped suspension, Whipple supercharger, and Ford Mustang Cobra wheels. It’s a truck that should have been built by Ford, and that will hopefully inspire other 1998-2011 Ford Ranger mini truck enthusiasts.

  • March 2011 Street Truck of The Month

As a Ford Ranger enthusiast who enjoys modifying my Ford Rangers for off-road use, I quickly discovered that there wasn’t any websites dedicated to the subject. So in 1999, I created TheRangerStation.com. What started as my own personal desire to help other Ford Ranger owners, has grown into a wealth of online information from numerous contributors. 20-years later, my commitment to the Ford Ranger, and the Ford Ranger community, is as strong as ever.
