    Ok, I know some (like me) like to do the mods and keep it as a modded ranger. I see that you are literally turning the ranger into the lincoln...I wasnt sure on it. I have seen people add an F-150 badge to a ranger, just to add it I guess which didnt make sense to me.

    That's a thought! Avoids the PITA tire winch also. Not to be confused with a tire wrench, or tired wench for that matter.

    Just Ironic come to think of it. how many lincolns have manual trannies. This is what makes this truck truly unique :)

    SLC is my first choice. I also thought about Missing Linc-oln.

    I like it a lot, except for the grill.. I don't think the grill goes with the ranger at all but to each his own. Other then that it looks awesome! Classed up a ton; Your ranger is wearing his(or hers lol) fancy pants now..

    I really wanted about 1/2 the vertical bars spaced wider apart and a bit larger bars.
    Lincolns all have the vertical bars in the grills not horizontal.
    I could not find anything reasonably priced that would fit without major reconstruction. The billet grill that I settled for is a good compromise in my mind. It is actually for a newer ranger. I had to "adjust" the mounting brackets. It gives it the Lincoln look that I was going for.
    I appreciate all your compliments and criticisms.

    Interesting and again as stated by upper posts if this is what you are going for well done.

    More chrome too, will bring up the bling affect.

    The interior, did you go with all electronics ?

    Interesting project, different to say the least, nice interior.

    cool project man, i like it! then again, i thought i would be the only one to swap a woodgrain expo radio bezal into his truck... you took it to a whole new level! i really want to see the outside of the truck when it's finished.

    kinda suprised you havin't swapped the automatic climate controlls from an expo / mountianeer though. and an OHC... after all, a lincoln is supposed to have ALL the bells and whisles :thumbsup:
