Hey everyone,
I just discovered this website and really digging it so far! I love watching GearZ and seeing what cool new stuff Stacey is working on. I am currently building (basically just started) a 1989 Ranger with a 2.3L and manual trans. I had this truck as a daily driver for years then finally bought something else and its time make it cool. So far, I've lowered it 3" in front and 4" in the rear with DJM dream beams, converted to MAF from a MAP system and installed the Moates Quarterhorse chip with Binary Editor tuning software. I have much more to do. I plan on going boost with a turbo. 8.8 LSD rear end with a ladder bar system and disk brakes. I got the idea of the leaf spring ladder bars from the cherry bomb shop truck episode. Then a long list of of other things to make this the autocross street truck I really want. I am currently deployed so the project is at a stand still and its driving me crazy not working on it! But, thanks to Stacey and the show, I can come on here to watch the show and chat with you guys to keep my sanity. I look forward to seeing cool cars and meeting cool people on here as wells as learning new things.

Nascar_Nate,

Welcome to the forum.  That will be a pretty kewl build for sure.  You have any plans for the interior or paint yet?  I know it's probably a little early in the build.

What MV is that in the background?

I own a deuce.  I've owned all the CUCV's except the M1010 ambulance.  Sold them in the past few years.  I still have a MEP003A 10kw generator on trailer and an MKT-75A kitchen trailer.

Keep us informed as to the progress of your vehicle.  WE LOVE PICTURES.  The more the better.

So, again, welcome.  You gonna fit in real well here.  Set a spell.  Tell us more when you can.

Thanks for serving.  It means a lot to ALL of us. Again, WELCOME.

jim

I truly appreciate your support and honored to serve.

I plan on repainting it black. I'd like to add in some matte gun metal gray accent but I'm not sure yet or where and how. I'd like to get some kind of new front bumper that looks more race car than 80s pickup. Something with a chin but doesn't look too rice. I think black stock car style wheels with cooper cobras would look awesome but I'd like to keep the lightweight aluminum. Just go to 17s and a bit wider. There was a set I saw that I think is made by American Racer that are gun metal gray and kind of had the look of whats on elenor but slightly different and didn't have the spinners that I thought might look good. Interior is staying basic as well. I'll make a new cluster with auto meter gauges and a big tach. Get some bucket seats with bulky side bolsters. Install some better pedals and a sweet shift handle and call it good.

I'm not sure what that is in the background. I just pulled into some random parking lot on the back side of base and snapped the photo, didn't really look at it. I bet that duece is pretty fun to bounce around in.

Take a look at the 'M1 Truck' that Smittybilt is selling the idea of one tough truck.  I don't think they make anything for your truck, just a place to get a few ideas. 


And you could always call Smittybilt and ask about possible different trucks that they are getting ready to offer their kit for.
