|Now... I'm trying to work a deal on a rod knocking 2000 Ranger in South Carolina, I'm in Missouri. There is nothing here . I'm looking for a very specific truck and found it over there..900 miles away. But hey, road trip never hurt anyone..lol
I used the black truck as a test bed for me... First v8 ranger I have messed with. I will say this..I have done several v8 s10's, a v8 ranger does ride better and has more engine bay room and cab room!
NowI will do thw frame off I've always wanted to do. I was going to do that on thw black truck but wasn't sure how the truck would act with the 400 hp v8 under the hood.
My theory was to build a daily driver v8 ranger, with ice cd ac, and be able.to sit in traffic in thw middle of summer and not worried or sweat. The truck did what it was suppose to do. To be honest, there was a couple times the temps got.to 209-210*, that's ok, but cuts down on the "oh " time frame. LMAO I think with a small auxiliary fan for stop and go traffic..qould be zero issues. So..plan.is ro go.ahead qith second build.. a frame off!
I want to thank everyone on here for the help, Things I had no idea on what I was doing.. especially James! He helped me so much with wireing questions when I had brain fog and didn't even use a BFH on me! 🤣🤣☕
But hopefully I can close the deal on this truck in SC and get over there and get it.. oh yes.. there will be a build thread right here and only here on that truck.. a Lonnnnnnng thread.👊
MERRY CHRISTMAS GUYS!!!
