    Default How bout a truck for a change(56K, 3 pics)

    Well heres where my name comes from. My 1992 Ford Ranger. Its got the 2.3L 5 speed(Same 2.3 you find in a SVO, Thunderbird Turbo, Or Merkur XRTi, just without the turbo). No options, even power steering. I added a system and thats about it.

    Photochop. Would like for it to look like this real soon.




    I made the shifter myself. I know, inside is dirty.


    I have a Flowmaster Exhaust on it too. Not sure what kind, it was already on it, but my friends at Ranger power sports say its either a 50 or 70 series.

    The top one looks like the suspension has broken, what's the point in having a large car/truck when your smaller than everything else anyway which seems to be why people by these. Sorry if i've offended anyone but I just don't get it.

    i agree with you pherelas, i think they look a bit stupid like that. Whats the point of buying a truck to lower it so it can't get over speed humps. But hey if the OP likes it then good for him, don't let us boring maniacs put you off.

    Yea see I was expecting that, everyone here is from the UK. Who does minitrucks in the UK? No one because you guys only have trucks meant to be trucks; the Ford Ranger you guys have is a crew cab with a turbo diesel. I got a single cab with a gutless 105HP 4 cylinder, might as well make it into a show piece.

    It will make it over speed humps fine even with a 5/7 inch drop on it, put bags on it and you can sit it on the ground, then just air it up when you go over speed bumps. Think my suspension looks broken? Try my friend's bagged Ranger(with a TON of custom body work).

    That's the only thing to like.
    I don't really like truck tuning.
    The only American cars i like are Hot-rods, these are quite cool :
    (And the Ford GT ofcourse! )

    You've got to remember US roads are mainly flat and straight, hence why we hardly see these in Europe unless they are branded by a company and lugging something along, it's different strokes for different folks. Myself personally see no point in it but then I like my cars to handle and give good response and feedback back to the driver making you confident when thrashing it!
    I'm a bit mental.

    I've been on Scottish B-roads when we came off the boat and we drove to Edinburgh. Not really much fun, as we went with a Bus But with a TVR i could imagine a lot of fun

    I hate trucks, their not cars, their not bikes, their trucks. Their square and slugish, I really prefer ANY car than a truck, oh and I hate tuning. What normal person would tune their ferrari, lambo, Aston Martin or even their Yaris? the only thing I would change in my car is the performance.
