I have a few vehicles right now.. first up is my 1968 Chevy C10. It was my first truck when I was 15, and I daily drove it to school. Was a project for me and my dad but never had much money to do a whole lot with it. The trans was rebuilt right after I bought it, been through a lot of motors because I had a bad luck string of them. It’s currently on number 5, a SBC 350 with a little work done but nothing special. Still needs a lot of work but sadly it’s in Oklahoma with my dad and I don’t really have a place for it right now. Next is Kristen’s 1978 Ford F-150 Ranger, 400 big block, 4WD. Another project that me and her want to do and is here with us but kind of off to the side at the moment but hopefully we get to it soon. I also have a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500, straight base model v6, pretty sure the only option they got when it was brand new is that it’s green not white lol. I bought it in 2016 and when I did it had a small slip in the trans between 2nd and 3rd, over time it got worse but this truck honestly made me a dodge guy. I gave this truck heck for Almost 40,000 miles and the only things I replaced were a radiator and a belt(AC compressor locked up and snapped the belt, and haven’t had a chance to change the compressor) and finally a few weeks ago at around 248K the trans gave up and lost 2nd and reverse, and just gonna get rid of it because it’s in rough shape. And finally, just bought a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee, fully loaded, 4x4, needs some work but it’s nice, but of course right as we got home the motor started tapping and lost oil pressure.. I think the oil pump broke, not sure yet. We got the motor out this week and are going to tear it apart soon and see what it is. I’ve had a rough go with all of the 5 vehicles I’ve ever owned lol (6 if you count the F150 but it’s not mine) sorry about the long post lol

Decent little truck i've had for about 2 years or so. 2001 Ford Ranger XLT

Haven't done anything to it really in that time. Hoping to get it tinted here soon, and still debating on whether or not i should lift it with new wheels and tires.

@fernBurn only lift it if it increases suspension travel, lifting it just to fit bigger tires is a waste of money.
@NitroMenace LS swap it 🤩

That is hot 😍 working on team RK has really made me fall in love with those new Rams, I wish I could afford one lol and @Outlawed I can’t afford an LS lol but I think once we rebuild this motor and cut the cat out it’ll run pretty good (I hope)

2001 Ford Ranger you say? Tinted windows you say? HMMMMMM!!! This is my beaut a 2001 Ford Ranger 4.0L with the 04 mirrors swapped onto it. I have an extra set of the 04 mirrors if you want em @fernBurn Free!

Sitting on Hankook Dynapro ATM's 235/75/r15 to be exact. <--- (not shown in pictures, haven't had the desire to take pictures with the new tires on it yet) I've own it for almost 3 years now and not had to put much into her, replaced a fuel pump and brakes and nothing else.

122,000 miles strong and I don't see it slowing down anytime soon. Also bought it with some tint on the windows, not sure what % is on it though.

On the inside I replaced the door speakers with some JBL's and have a Rockford 12" R1 on a Pioneer Amp, everything sounds great, just wish it didn't rattle so much being that the plastics basically falling apart.

Aw man back seats would be nice. We have a team shop truck, an 01 Ford Ranger base model with like 340K on it and it is an extended cab but has no seats which was rough when me and Kristen and Rudy were all riding back and forth to work lol

Along travel kit doesn’t even really lift the truck. It just extents the track width.

So changing it up some. My dad sold my 68 Chevy(sadness) because neither of us really had time or money to do anything with it sadly. Also sold my 98 Dodge yesterday to some guy that just wanted the motor out of it. Plans are right now, gonna fix Kristen’s Ford and sell it and also drop a used motor into our Jeep and sell it as well. I’m kinda over driving around something I have to worry about so... picking up a 2016 Dodge Ram, V6 4WD. Pretty excited about having this new of a vehicle for the first time!
