    Default 2005 Ford Ranger



    Hey all, I picked up a new 4x4 today. 05 Ranger XLT...4.0, 4x4, 5 speed. 33k miles. I love it so far! Its bone stock, but its kinda nice to have a simple truck, that is quiet and has plenty of power. My Bronco is loud and with the stock 3.55's and 33's, its a dog.

    Best part about it all is, I think I can afford to keep my Bronco too.

    Its too dark for pics, but I will post some tomorrow night after work. Stay tuned!

    Yes, the seats are still a bit wet from being detailed. I picked it up last night, right before close. They were detailing it as I signed the papers.

    Bit of an update here.

    Since the last time I posted in this thread i've put in a couple sound systems and a CB radio. I've taken a couple sound systems out and replaced them with a small one. A single 10 inch Sony Xplode sub and a Kenwood amp. Its small, and convenient. I've also taken the CB out and put it in my Bronco. I will be getting a smaller Cobra CB soon for the Ranger.

    I've also gone through a couple different toolboxes. First a black husky. Wasn't low profile, so I replaced that with my current low pro Husky box.

    Also put on a 3 inch body lift today. Suspension lifts are just too expensive. Still rolling on the small tires, but in the next 3-4 weeks I will be putting on some Goodyear Kevlar MTR's or Goodyear Duratracs. And of course some new wheels.

    Here are a few pics. I know most of you don't like to see your 4x4's clean, but I keep my Ranger that way. My Bronco is my wheeling rig.

    First system...much to big.

    Now

    Lift going on


    Few things to finish up, but most of the work all done

    Missed the part where ya said ya put a 3" body lift on it. The other stuff don't count. Tunes are a necessity not an option.

    I actually originally bought the two 12's for my Bronco, before I bought the Ranger. Then when I started DDing the Ranger, I wanted a better system but could not afford to buy another. So I transferred the subs over to my Ranger.

    Now the 2 12's are back where they belong, in my Bronco haha.

    I have someone from another forum who is interested in trading his 265x75x16 BFG AT's with 8/32nds tread for my 255x70x16 Goodyear RT/S's with 12/32nds. So his have about 50% tread, and mine have 75ish. Not sure if i'm going to do it or not. Might be worth it to run them for a few months, until I can save for some tires/wheels I want. On the other hand, I can just buy what I want in a few weeks, and sell this current tire/wheel setup for a good chunk of change. Any thoughts?

    If I buy new, i'm going new 15x8 wheels. Thinking just some basic, but good looking, Micky Thompson classic 2's.

    Also debating on tires. I'm leaning towards some Goodyear Kevlar MTR's or the Goodyear Duratracs. Not sure if I really want MT's. But they will be in a 33x12.50 size.

    I also am wanting to do some dual exhaust on it. Probably going to go with the Flowmaster Super 44 muffler.

    After I get tires, i'll have to decide on what I want to do with that stock tire hanging down. Along with the mud flaps and side steps. Only problem is, the mud flaps have sort of gouged a line in the paint.

    I also want a headache rack. LOL

    Congrats! I just got rid of my rear wheel Ranger, I loved it! It got killer highway miles (like 23), and was a blast to drive in the mountains! Just...not off road or in snow.

    Enjoy

    Nice looking ride! The 33's will ride well enough. As nice as it is to have a full size, you are going to love what this truck will do!
