2016 Ford Ranger

Ford Ranger

I bought it in 2016 new (pre-DPF). All the work after it left the showroom floor has been done by myself: high-flow turbo upgrade; Unichip; intercooler; catch can; three-inch King Brown exhaust; and it’s dyno’d to 131rwkW. In the electrics I have a semi-flexible solar panel with a Redarc BCDC charger and 130amp/h AGM battery in the back, beneath the wing of a custom-made rear drawer system. Full Stedi LED exterior lighting wire leads to switching at rear. It also has a 42-inch Stedi light bar beneath the front of the platform, as well as Lightforce HTX spotties up front. I removed the rear seating for storage platform and water storage. Underneath is a full Bilstein height-adjustable three-inch lift with 35-inch Nitto Trail Grapplers on KMC Machete black alloy rims, and a PSR diff drop to save them CV problems. That’s only half the mods! - Billy Cain
