We started this project with a brand new MY19.00 Ford Ranger PX3 XLT ute. Purchased in the stunning Lightning Blue to complement the upgrades and stand out on the road.
This project will go on a journey over the coming weeks to show how easy it is to convert an everyday dual cab ute into the ultimate crossover weekend warrior.
Stage one starts with installation of a new Drivetech 4×4 Rival Alloy Bumper. Made from 6mm alloy to provide excellent strength and protection without the disadvantage of a heavy steel bar, the Drivetech 4×4 Bumpers are designed to ensure easy installation as a full replacement for the OE bumper. Stylish and functional these bars come in a matte black finish.
– Integrated recovery points
– Built-in tow hooks and high lift jack slots
– Winch mount and access
– High quality welds
– Designed for ease of fitment with 6mm Drivetech 4×4 Underbody Armour by Rival
– ADR69 compliant
We have also upgraded the wheels and tryes to 17×9 King Blade Milled Finish rims wrapped with Toyo AT2 285/65/17 tyres to give the ute the stance and performance it deserves.
Next stage includes a Pedder’s 2 inch lift kit then back to the workshop for an exciting heavy duty alloy tray – what this space.
