Thumbs up Daniel3507 Build Thread

I guess i should finally start a build thread so here it goes. I dont think i have pics of everything but i will post what i find.
The old headlights were all fogged up so decided to replace them with new ones.


The old ones.

Decided to replace the bulbs while I was at it with Phillips Xtreme bulbs
New

Old

All lights in the back are LED other than reverse and turn signals

And now the good stuff, 4.10 gears

Took it from this ,

To this (You can see in this pic the 20% tint and the newer Ranger fender badges.)

Also painted the diff cover Ford Blue ( the spare tire and tire holder have been removed now)

Hardwired Valentine 1

LED dome lights

I painted the RANGER on the door seal to match the truck since i couldnt find a good way to make it light up. Im still not sure if I like it or not.

And custom front tow hooks

As we all know, the mods never stop. Soon to come are new Bilstein shocks and custom exhaust and god knows what else.

I think I will build my truck like yours. I was wondering tho, did you use the Daystar kit? Thats the exact one I'm looking at. Did you also get longer shocks as well? I need new shocks in the front so might as well. Have you also thought about doing a 1 in body lift as well? It will look awesome on your truck. And did you have to change out the speedo worm gear as well with your gears and tires or did you keep that the same? And also do the tires ever rub at all? I'm sorry for asking so many questions. I need the info to get working on my truck as the front suspension components are wearing out fast.

Yeah i have the Daystar kit on right now. The shocks are just the stock shocks but they are getting replaced with Bilstein shocks soon but they are just going to be the stock length. Ive thought about the body lift but i dont think i will get one. Im not really a fan of body lifts and I kinda liked the stuffed tire look. I havent changed out the speedo gear yet. Its off by about 5mph so when it reads 50 im really doing 45. The tires only rub when at full lock. I havent really had any problems with it though.

Thanks guys. The Alcoa rims were the one thing that i was not going to settle on. It took a little to find a set for sale but it was well worth it.
