Updated Pictures!(Lots O' Pics!)

Been a little while since I popped in here..I think I left somewhere around this picture last time:


So I'll start from there..ish.
I got stuck in some mud.



Ordered one rim from Automotive Warehouse to test it out on my truck, as I was in between getting Black or all Chrome.

I liked it. That one had a ding in it though, so I ordered 4 new ones..




Bought come clear corners from a buddy in Milton off of FordRangerForums..




I heard a weird grinding..thinking it was my brakes. Pop the rear drums off, to find BOTH e-brake cable things broken. Ah, I don't use it anyways..


Then bought an OHC off of another guy on FRF..

Tore it apart for paint and some LED mods..





The stock anchor points in my bed SUCK. So I made my own..

Whats a truck without a hitch? Added one. Had to cut and rework my exhaust though to make it fit.

Had a Ranger meet with the Ontario Ranger Club in Brantford..
We neared 30 trucks at some point..

The FIRST ever Thunderbolt Ranger(Vin# is 001)

Some of us took down to the local river for some fun..





Then I did some offroading with my Dad in the H2, and my bro in the Durango. My truck did excellently..







Then I did a full on detail. 5 hours on my feet..but totally worth it!



Waxed..

Good looking truck! I like the wheels. I think the broken cable in your pic are self adjuster cables. Without them you'll have to manually adjust the rears to get a good pedal feel.

@SVT: Thanks man! They work SO well. Used them many times now. I am thinking of adding some fold down ones in the bed floor so they are out of the way when I don't need them. I need those kind for carrying more than one dirt bike..

@jimmyk: Oh really? Hmm ok, when we looked at it(I mean, they were broken inside so we tired to piece it together) it looked like they pulled the brakes for my E-Brake. Either way, they were squealing incredibly loud. And thanks, I love the wheels. I like chrome..and black..so this was a perfect choice.

@Mrmagoo: Thanks Mr! It's little but it does what I need it too!

In the works right now is a custom bed extender, seeing as no one makes one for a stepside. Quick question, how do you attach a stock bed extender into the bed? Thats what I'm stuck on..I have the idea drawn up, and can be ready to weld anytime..but I just don't know how to hold it into my truck.

Stoked to get her lifted, also looking at doing a full exhaust system shortly(not just cat back)

Might as well update again! Some more pics..and what not:
I added a third Hella 500FF light to the front..

I added a Fire Scanner, hooked to a CB Whip

Bought some cool LED oval light up rings off of another Forum:



(The rear lights up brighter when brakes applied, the front lights up brighter when highbeams on)
Added a strobe kit..



Guess I don't have any of the front, but they are behind the grill..
I wanted a backrack..and no one makes them for Steppies, so I bought one off a fellow Ranger'r, and modded it..




I then added my CB..

Cleaned/waxed my rims for the winter..



Then just a recent shot..stock rims on for winter..


So ya..I love this truck so far. Going to lift it and but some BFG's on er in the spring. Hope ya like.

On a side note, my buddy's Dad has a friend who picked up a Raptor..and did the Veloci-Raptor. The thing is SWEEEEEEET ! oh man.
