What do you think of this ranger?

Okay i've talked about this truck in the past and i'll give just a little info right quick.

Axle :
Stock housing ( I think? )
Richmond 3.31 Gears
Eaton Posi Unit
Moser Axles ( hardened )
Precision Corp Berrings

Engine : 4.0 V6
Explorer Block
Kennedy Prepped Heads
Kennedy Prepped Manifold
Manley 5.7inch H-Beam rods ( yeah, gm part )
Ross Pistons ( cut )
Perfect Circle Rings
NGK or Autolite plugs ( copper )
NX solonoids
Edelbrock Purge system
MSD Relay's
MAC Cold Air Intake
Pro-M 75MM Maf ( calibrated )
FMS ( Roush ) 42#/hr Injectors
FMS 155L/Hr pump
Holley Fuel regulator
EM Hobbs switch
EM Tec3 Brain
MSD Window Switches
Electric fans and thermal switches for it.
Magnaflo Exhaust/Mandrel bent Stainless Pipes
Hines Temperature Adapter
Hines Frame Braces
Hines Panhard brackets/Rod.

Tranny:
Borg T5, hurting and needing yet another clutch.

He also has a supercharger sittin in his garage.

What i'm considering doing once I have something that is strickly for offroading i'm going to take my truck back to stock. Then drop a crate 5.0/t-5 into the truck. Now this guy found a way to lower and tighten up an edge's suspension SAFELY. He designed some lowering keys for the torsion bars. It doesn't slam it to the ground or anything like that. Just puts it slightly lower then an xlt ranger. Now this would be after i'f paid this truck off and it's just a toy and not my DD. I wanted to see your thoughts on the truck.

I already have 1 step of this plan hopefully happening this summer when I goto FL. Brent know's what i'm talking about, but untill its done i'm not going to say what it is.

Dude I just give you crap about it lol. Im still lifting my truck and going to have fun with it, but the truck wont be paid off for another 4-5 years. So IF I decide I want to do that THEN it's not like i'm saying i'm changing it now. Anyway once I have an actual trail rig then i'll want the truck to be more comfortable to drive around. Plus if I end up swapping the 5.0/t-5 in i'm going to want to be able to have fun with it. I'm not slamming the truck. It'll only be about an inch or so lower then stock hight if I do it.

I do know what direction i'm going with the truck and thats up for now. There is nothing wrong with changing things up hell i'm going to have this truck for 10+ years atleast. However by then I should have another stang so I may not even do any of this. I just asked for y'alls opinions. Nothing is final lol.

yeah especially the ones that are super high, that never see any off road use cause the owner doesnt want to dirty the chrome underneath, and he lives in the middle of suburbia hell, and acts like a total hick but has never stepped foot on a farm/ranch in his life, and says cars are for girls and all men need big trucks to make up for their small penis...........yeah need i go on?

i dont know dude, its your truck who cares what others think. though its hilarous that every week its something else, last week was sport truck, this week was 5.0/t5 swap, next week itll be 10" lift hick-mode. you should buy 2 more rangers. leave yours how it is now. get a 4x4 ranger and lift it and what not. then get the other one(2wd one) and lower it to the maxx for a sport truck look. then get a 94-95 GT for the 5.0 in ya cause you know you want one. problem solved. oh, and then youre gonna need fleet insurance.....

Never said anything about a sport truck last week? i'm still lifting my truck and going to enjoy it now..... Guys calm down just asking your thoughts on the truck and what i MIGHT do years down the line. Even if the truck stays lifted it's getting a bigger motor and a manual tranny.

I'm not "flip flopping" on my truck here. I didn't decide to make it a street truck now. I'm going to enjoy it and offroad it, but once I do actually buy a true offroad rig then i'm atleast taking my truck back to stock hight.

Look at it this way atleast i'm not going and trading it in on a mustang and screwing myself over. In the end it is MY truck and I WILL do what I want with it. However I like to get opinions on things and what people think.

We have some of those people here as well, they spend all this $ to do a proper off-road setup and lift then it never see's a bit of mud or dirt..i just look in disgust.I know if i had a truck setup like that it'd be off road more then its on.
