OK, before i introduce my pride and joy, I have to let you all know how I feel about the lifestyle i am completely in love with. I have wanted to be involved... Show more in the Minitruck scene since i was a kid, i watched Mi Vida Loca, and i was hooked. I am gettin tired of people comming up to me and telling me that i ruined a perfectly good truck, that the purpose of the truck is to get dirty and haul crap around. I am not knocking any lifestyle, whether you like your ride raised up, or scrapin up road dots, and yes, I do enjoy the sound of deflatin bags and rockers hittin pavement. And yes, it may be alot of things, but wheather its cool/stupid, fun/retarded, I still love the fact that our lifestyle will drag the hell out of a ride and throw sparks fm here till tomorrow. So, if you are out there touchin the heavens in a lifted full size, or you trick out the honda and burn rice till there aint none left, or you are like me and tuck some dope rims sportin negative camber, i give you all props for settin yourself apart and being different, because I am gonna say it, STOCK SUCKS!!! oh, and i got somethin for you guys that put some 20s or bigger on a ride and think you pimp. Ok, Now that I got that out of the way, its time to show my hard work off, Shes a 1997 Ford Ranger XLT, but some people would say that it looks nuthin like one. Thats due to the laundry list of mods done to the whole vehicle, i have to say that almost every part of this truck has been modified in some way, but, saddly to say, she is all show, and no go! I have not touched the Stock 2.3 four banger. I know, iknow, but, i was too concerned how it looked and not how it moved.
Let us start here shall we, as you can see, The whole truck has been shaved minus the handles,The bumper(Both not legal in Hawaii) and the Gas door. so, from this end you can see the 3rd brake light, the tailgate handle, the door locks, the fender emblems, and the antenna Mount are all missing. Yup Yup. I also had the Licence plate Cut and Frenched.
Whew, this took a while, the front end sports many mods,Custom hood by Goodmark, Projecter Headlights with Crystal Corners, Billet main and bumper grilles, and no, that is not a Ranger bumper, that was modified bu SilverStar Customs to Fit the Ranger, but it came from a Toyota 4x4. And i also got the custom mirrors chillin as well. Oh, yeah, those are 18" Mondera Crystals. Just in case you wonderin. Now to the Inside, I took Marisa to a show,on the 4th of July 2005.This is me (middle) and some of my boys that I rolled with from Rollin Smooth MT Hawaii. Anyhow, the inside was stock, and i was just mainly showin off the exterior, Kept the doors closed, and chilled, well, i didnt get a good reaction from folks because even though the outside was pimp, the inside Sucked! So, I had to make some changes and here they are. Show Less
Well I finally got the time and ability to get the pics up, so i am gonna go into the install for the projector headlights. I ordered the lights through kraz... Show moreycustoms.com and i recieved them 3 days later which was nice for a change. and here thet are in all their boxxed glory!
I started off by takin the before shot which you will see here with the stock corners and the cleared headlights.
I had to remove the blinkers and the front grille to install and once that was done, it was smooth sailin from there. Remove the 2 bolts from the top of the headlamp and disconect the wiring harness. The headlight will slip out smooth as silk. Now comes the personal prefrence portion, since i only wanted the LED's to light with the blinkers, I only spliced the LED lead into the blinker port. The Halo's went into the parking light lead and the groung of course went to the ground! I cut the wiring harness leaving enough room to work with and used electrical clamps to attach the wiring to the male portion of the harness.
once the wiring was done i attached the clamps to the vehicle harness, and cleaned up the application with electrical tape.
And after that its just a matter of workin backwards to get all the parts back where they belong. And here is the finished product. SORRY THIS HASNT BEEN UPDATED, I AM CURRENTLY STILL DEPLOYED TO IRAQ TILL MARCH, SO WE WILL SEE WHAT THE FUTURE HAS IN STORE AFTER RETURNING. HOLLER!
