This Customized 1991 Ford Ranger Pickup Can Go Top-Down
GM might have the only domestic midsize trucks on the market right now, but it doesn’t presently offer anything like the 1991 Ford SkyRanger convertible pickup you see here.
This week’s Tire Smokin’ video features a second generation Ford Ranger doing a monster burnout.
Let’s break out the time machine and set a course for 1983! Aside from being the year I was born, it was also the first year that Ford introduced the Ranger mid-sized pickup truck.
In the forums a question keeps appearing asking about the feasibility of swapping a later model transmission into an older truck. While it is possible, it sure isn’t practical. EVERYTHING is possible given enough time and money.
The 1988 Ford Ranger GT you see in the video here packs a V8 attached to a massive, 94-millimeter turbo. That combination is set up to pump out around 1,600 horsepower, but it can be dialed in to produce as much as 2,000.
