I'm a new member here.
I would like to show you the 2000 ford ranger I've been working on.

Wow a Ranger Convertible!!! I like it. I have looked at a lot of customs and they are usually the same old thing. slam 'em and put a tonneau cover on the back and maybe a two tone paint job. I will be interested when you get it completed. How much time did it take you?
Like/hate, but it is different.
There are 200 man hours in this ranger.
A lot of that was just figuring out what I wanted to do.
I'm sure This could be done much faster on another one.
I am the original owner of this ranger. I drove it to work for years until I rolled it on black ice. The ranger sit in my barn for 7 years. Well with this economy I've had some time off. The ranger is built to take me to construction sites. Normally 100 mile round trip daily. I need the ugly black box. I didn't want to lower it. Most job sites are poorly maintained. I did put Michelin tires on because I've had very good luck with them on other trucks.
The only thing that isn't finished is the top. Still waiting for the upholsterer to call.
interesting choice of mods i personally would put on some of the widest cooper cobra's you could find on the back to give her a more hot rod stance possibly find a nice back bumper along with a nice shiny front one too and i would continue with the cage assembly you already have in place and create a roll bar /cage look possibly a couple KC daylighter's up top, and eventually dual your exhaust out as either side pipes a.k.a. lakers or exit behind rear tires.....hide the spare tire and possibly look in to getting an aluminum tool box instead of plastic but this is just what i wold do i am not saying you should or would have to but i think it would make this an awesome new concept roadster
I painted front and back bumpers flat black.
Took out the black box and put in a diamond plate one I have.
Mounted the spare tire mount to the floor.
Camera batteries dead. Will post soon.
