Join RnagerForum.com Today!
Just got an email about this....
But the forum staff gets to pick the finalists????!!!
I know on other forums its always the biggest lifted and most $$$ trucks that always end up wining.
Model: Ranger XLT 4x4
Options: Power everything! 4.0L 5spd, 4x4, Sliding rear window, cruise, tilt,
Mods/Custom Work: AVS Bugshield & Vent visors, Billet Grille, Snap Top Tonneau Cover, Aftermarket Tail lights, Clear corner lenses, Chrome Bulbs for all turn signals, cold air intake, 40 series flowmaster dual exhaust, 5% tint on rear windows and visor strip, 35% tint on front windows, 10000k HID headlights, 7" panasonic in dash dvd, 1000 watt profile amp, 12" bravox uxp sub in vented enclosure
Description: This was my first TRUE financed vehicle, mom and dad helped sign for it and I love it! Bought it stock as the 2nd owner with 18K miles on it and proceed to do mods to it for a tastefully modified ranger. I like the way it looks
Thats a nice truck!
it's not gonna be that way here the staff will pick 3 finalists. some of the months we will be running contests such as stock, lifted, and lowered. so some months we will have the members vote on 2 stock/lifted/lowered trucks. so its not always the one that has spent the most $$ on their trucks as to give the members that cant spend major $$ on their trucks have a fair shot..
Yes, the contest rules are what they are. We have tried the contest with other types of rules, and like other forums it comes to a personality contest as far as who is liked more, or an opinionated contest where the majority of member may prefer lifted trucks. This type of contest eliminates both of those where the staff can decide that each seperate month can consist of specific, yet similar trucks to vote on. We like to have a contest where each month will not consist of the most modded truck being nominated or winning. This way, it gives ALL members a fair shot in the contest whether they are stock, dropped, lifted or vintage.
Anytime...and its a steppy! lol

I bought this truck used and after driving it for a year decided to start detailing it for auto shows. Well after another 2 years, I decided to go big, taking the entire truck apart and rebuilding it from the frame up. I don't have a shop, rather I did this as a hobby in my spare time, this is the only vehicle I've ever done, so although it took quite some time, I'm proud of the work. There was great attention to detail, I didn't take one clip or bolt and throw it back on the truck without either painting, polishing, using SS, etc.
Ok good..that sounds great....
Im working on my entry....how do i link to my garage? All i get is my link to edit it not a link for others to view it.
I dont have alot of pics in my garage but i have alot on photobucket and on my own website.
That is a badass ranger...lots of time and tons of $$$ put into that!
Maybe one day my truck will be something like that.
Just copy the URL and put it in the contest garage link portion. If you have any issues, put the entry in and I can throw the link in there

Saving up for a Superlift Suspension Lift Kit
This is my second vehicle, second ranger. My first one was a 95xlt 2wd 2.3l 5speed.
Got this 99 3.0 with 118K on it and 2 yrs later at 128K i had a faulty fuel injector cause a spark plug to detonate damaging the cylinder/piston. Spent about $3500 to have a new engine put in. Then about 4 yrs later my reverse band in my tranny snapped, had to spend another $1900 to have it rebuilt. Also have spent over $1000 in brakes and rear axle work.
I picked up another truck, a white 98 xlt 3.0 ext cab 4x4 for $500 that has a bad motor, got a good motor and tranny for it for $400. Will be putting that into it this summer and this white ranger will become my daily driver and winter beater, and my red 99 will be my project fun truck..
