Notin too special but its works great for me i love the way they look and its decent on fuel and is never had an issue.




And my past COOL truck i had



It had the RARE 7.3 IDI turbo Diesel ford sold for only two years (it was replaced by the powerstroke). I had that thing modded to hell and up to 100km/hr (60mph) it out run my buddies 2003 Chiped with exhaust and intake Dodge cummins. And if a drove it nicely it get 21mpg too. I miss that truck but the ranger is more economical to own and gets about the same fuel milage.

I have an diesel Excursion I keep going back and forth on. I recent bought a Ranger also. They get the same fuel mileage! The Excursion is more expensive to maintain but far more comfortable.

Powered by some type of V-6 Ford.

Truck is in Southern Maine, Dayton or Biddeford, not sure as the town line is near. Area code 207.

Not affifiated. Just thought someone here might be interested enough to persue further.

I have more pictures.
Need specific pictures, I'm only about 10 miles away.

We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Taking collections for Faye Butler Training please spare some change.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.

There are two inch spacers between the rear wheels, but I'm thinking about going to 2.5" because the sidewall bulges are a red cunt hair apart when I put 2,000+ lbs of load in the bed. The front end is leveled 2 inches, but now I'm thinking about hoisting the rear end about 2" to get my rake back. Can't stand the ass-dragging look.

I believe it is a roller to help with approach angles. Keeps the front end from digging in.

Heres my addition. Not my truck, just saw in the Home Depot parking lot.






This is my truck. '78 Datsun 620.

A few days later after meeting the ass of a Honda Accord. I was not a happy person.

Sweet trucks, Bandit240.

Thanks, PaleRider. More to come on that Dodge... not quite done yet. Gotta be careful to not go over the top and make it look tacky.
