Default My Rig

Long time lurker, Just now started posting. So i figured i'd make a thread about my Pile of bolts.
ITs my DD, but i do Off road it a bit. Plenty of farms and empty fields around me that have tons of trails and mud.

1994 Ranger. With the Horrible I-Beam front end.
Day I picked it up:


First thing i took care of was the Stock Fog lights. The brackets look like they could be attached to the frames and used to recover my rig, So those had to go for the idea i had in mind.
I used Fog lights from a 2008 F-150 They're 55w and pretty bright. With a little Fabrication, they we're fit in and hooked to the stock fog light harness.

Backside bracket:


Front:


The next thing that had to go were the Off-Brand tires that i came with the truck. they we're getting kind of bald and looked girly.
So, a quick trip to a good friend of mine at Belle Tire and i got 31x10.5 BFG All Terrains put on.




So after that. The bed of my truck had really started to show its age. I happened upon a good deal one day for a bed and rollbar. So off to paint the bed went and i found some Dick Cepek Lights on Ebay to get mounted on the Roll bar.
At the same time, I decided i wanted to color match the rollbar to the bumpers and fender flares. So everything got painted and re-assembled that weekend to look like this:









More recently. I've just been spending time fixing the things that break after 17 years.

Few more pictures, just because
