We are still picking away.  Let’s see how much we can get done before the new year.   Need to find a was to clean up and fill in the ugly holes in the cab where the bars exit.  Damn class rules meant we had to exit sheet metal.

I'm guessing that they drive by, look and drool... but leave without comment. Personally, I admire the craftsmanship and the talent and abilities it requires to do such things. I've never had access to a shop and tools necessary to do work like this, so never developed the skills.  Therefore, I have to be satisfied with ogling other peoples' work. I will continue to stop by to see what you have posted!:)

Well, it appears to be coming along nicely. I don't know what all goes into a project like this, I just like to watch!

Oh, a lot more people like doing drive-by's here, its a much more niche and skilled work, but we like watching it.

You'll be able to see this more once we get a 'like' button going :)

Been a little slow going around here lately but we are picking away. Trying to wrap up the cage so it can return to my garage and start the core support and headers.   Still messing around with he idea of running it off e85.   And a few car shows and cruises is like the attend this season.

Thank you.   An I’m hoping so there’s not so many full build rangers around here I know of 3 or 4. I’m hoping it can squeeze off a 9.9x

Thanks you.      And Most modded or most money spent. I think I’d get close to that one. And I’m no where near done.
