The 86 is under construction

well i started out with my 86 ranger as my 1st truck car every back in the day i had a v8 in it when i got it then swaped it to a 2.3 turbo drove it like that for a while till the motor let go then slap another v8 in it again till i parked it in 2004 its not been on the road since an just pretty much falling apart as she sat. This spring i was getting back to the track more an more with my 06 were i broke into the 14s with my daily driven v6 ranger sport an made me think i shoud rebuild my 1st ever car so my 1986 ranger is back on the rebuild hear are some pics lots of mods to come with it ill post pics as it goes an once she is ready ill be running her at the track to see how she does any guys wanna race a v6 ranger na for fun on the races to see this year.
this is how she looked back in the day


now some more current pics post comments or ask questions

So Matt you finally got things figured out what your doing with both trucks, and looks as if you took the rims/tires off the 94 and put them on the 86. If i'm in london soon I'll give you a shout to see the trucks.
