Modified Ford Ranger PX,
Modified Episode 25.

This Ford Ranger PX is the second Ranger featured on modified to date, although they are both Ford-Ranger’s this one is setup very different and the main feature on this PX Ranger is the custom rear tray which Dylan (the owner) has modified more than 3 times, adding those extra bits and bobs and improving other mods at the same time.

A Modified Ford Ranger PX on the track.


Dylan used to own a 79 series Landcruiser and says he is happier in the 4x4 PX Ranger, one of his main reasons was the fuel consumption and comfort.

Not only does this Ford-Ranger PX look tough it’s also very practical and well thought out. Build details below and a full video too…

Dylan’s top 3 trips in the Ranger PX:

  1. James Price Point
  2. Karijini National Park
  3. Yeagarup


Unstoppable moment in the Ranger PX:

Making it to the top of Callcup Hill.


Dylan’s modification tips:

If you’ve fitted a bulbar you will need a snorkel as the air intake becomes exposed to sand, dirt and water.


Top 3 tips with the PX Ranger:

1.     Factory air box doesn’t seal around the lid and a rubber seal is needed  

2.       a 3 inch exhaust opens up more torque down low

3.       33 inch tyres fit on standard suspension




Things to look out for on a Ford Ranger PX:

Front output shaft is prone to leaking.

Bash plates are weak.
