Next thing on the list is to dove the bed, build the HP 44 w/ 5/13s
Supercharged engine build is currently in the parts gathering phase, but it will be a while before the truck goes down for open heart surgery. I am going to wheel it this spring/summer since the truck seems to hold its own in its current state.
I think the truck earned the Ranger "Custom" emblems
I built this whole truck while working a full time job and paying my way through college, so bear with me. Its been a leaning process with plenty of trial and error.
It wanted a truck that was streetable and comfortable, so I can cruise an hour or two to go wheelin' and still be dependable enough to drive home.



Thanks for looking
