My names Newks I got 2.5 rangers ha. I got my 04 edge sohc 5spd 2wd. My baby is my 96 its in the middle of a transformation. I bought it stock from a friend. Cut the coils and put on some splash leafs. I sold the truck about a year ago. Then I bought it back and I lowerd it with DJM beams and I cut a half coild out of some splash coils droping it 6 in the front. The back I got a flip kit and the splash leafs giving it around 8inches of drop out back. I still have lots of work to do. I gota put the motor back together and slap a new clutch in it. I will probably paint it white and put some black steelies on it. as for my half ranger I rolled it and cut the roof off. It just got parts stolen off from there. Now its on the way to the scrap yard. As for myself personally. I will be leaving for the marines hopfully by january more then likely febuary. I am engadged and other then that lol not much going on. I look forward to this site. I hope it doesnt get as F'dup as some of the other ranger sites where people just rag on each other because they can.

Damn I was hopin that I would be the first lowerd ranger lol.

I suppose to if I really think about it if I added up all my other ranger parts I would have about 4 rangers really I got another frame some axles ect lol.

I was so bummed when I bought my edge knowing that either I was going to have to get a 4wd chassis with a soch if I wanted a 5spd or I was going to have to get an auto with the sohc to get a lowerable chassis. So I just went with the edge and bought my 96 for 500 bucks to full fill my needs lol.

I dont have any roll over pics of my 92 (the one I rolled) when it happen the second time. I swear that truck was bad luck. I hydro planned and flipped it on its side wich wsnt back casue I just popped the front tire back on it bead and drove it home once I had the rubberside back down.

As the marines I will be in san diego. I live in wisconsin and I am not allowed to go to parris islan for some weird reason. Wich is fine with me cause I dont like sand fleas any how.


Ok I dont have much for pics currently but heres a few of the two tha i still have assembled.

The 04 when I first got it


as she sits now


As for my 96 this is the only "complete" picture I have of it

Heres a front picture and under carrage pic. I cant even get a lighter laying flat under my radius crosser bolts lol


Ok I gotta go to school and get my fricken diploma since nobody told me you cant get into the marines anymore with just a ged

I drive my 04. My 96 isnt really together there lol. The front hubs were off a 92 the bumper isnt bolted up and the bed is just resting on there and I dont belive there was a rear window in it. I blew up the clutch in that truck and the starter died too.

To school is really easy. All I really have to do is show that I am compitent. Like 9th grade math and being able to blanace a check book. Crap like that. My instruter thinks is assinine that I have to do it becasue I am clearly compitent enough to do it. The reason I got me GED was I got in a very very bad fight early 10th grade. I dont wanna get into to much detail but I was almost charged with attempted manslaughter or somthing of that nature. So it wasnt a lack of academic knowledge lol.

My 04 is lowerd a little bit lol. I took out the rear blocks and dropped the Tbars all the way down.
