Welcome to the Ford Ranger Page

   I'm establishing this page to all Ford Ranger enthusiasts no matter what year, make, model. be it street, strip, Custom or 4x4.   

   You have problems, we have the answers, well most of them. If we don't, we can guide you to where you might find them.

    If you have a tech question just make a new entry in the "Discussion Forum" with your topic title and then your question. It'll be easier for you to follow than entering it in the  "Comment Wall" and have to hunt for it.

    Hope you enjoy your visit, Lee.........

Hey FJ, yeah, I'm here, Have a few irons in the fire, just spaced it. Watchin' Nat. Geo. "Combat Rescue", pretty intense. It's a mighty fine lookin' Ranger. Are you havin' problems as to locating a buyer??

I was hoping that someone in the group would comment, critique, or something. Lets get the discussions alive again. Take a look at my pictures recently posted of the old bone.

Old Bone, yep! 85 Ranger-Added pictures on my page finally. It's a 2.3 EFI, T5 transmission, 7.5 rear end and has served me well. It is a 2wd that has hauled materials and me without costing a fortune-great truck.

Hey FJ, Good to hear from you, with the non activity I was thinking that folks forgot about the site.

Can't wait to check out the pictures of your Ranger, Merry Christmas to you and yours also.................

I'm still here & enjoy the comments. I did take some pictures of my Ford Ranger during the summer. Now may be a better time to post a few to view. It just sits and waits for a dump run or a day drive to use up the old fuel. My truck has served me well, it's been fun to work on, learn from and drive where ever I needed to go. Who knows, maybe someone in the group may offer a decent amount of love and $ to take it to there home. Just gives me incentive to put pictures up to view and continue our conversation. Happy Holidays to all! Be safe and enjoy your family.

OH yeah, Starvin, I cover some tech on the Zetec in the Discussion forum above, and also the Billet Hurst quick shifter for your 5 speed, Lates.....

Hey that sounds cool, Yea since they didn't make the projector with the Angel eyes, I purchased the projectors, then sent them off to have the angel eyes / halos installed. So I guess I may be the only '96 Ranger with them, cool eh??

   An artist, Cool! Are you familiar with art work of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth?? If not, you can Google his name. He's a custom car builder of the '50's and '60s. If you noticed on my tailgate on the left a portrait Of Ed Roth and above the Ford oval "Rat Fink" . The center is the Ed Roth style rendition  of of my Ranger. Mike of Howard's Auto body did it for me. 

  The theme is an "Ol skool" styling with new steel, the same reversed rims as I had on my '56 Ford Pick up when I was in high school, 15"x12"x4 fatties in the rear  15"x8"x2"s in the front. I'm also trying to locate a '96 stepside bed and chop and widen the fenders so they'll cover the wider tires and won't have to run the skirts and mus flaps like I have now with the 15"x10"x4"s. Got pegged by the CHP with a fix-it-ticket, so for the mean time, skirts and mud flaps. Suck huh??
