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.
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…
