“Red Ted” a.k.a. Teddy Redson, Teddy Bonez, Reddy Tedder, The Ranger, The Pickup, and finally Red Rocket Teddy. Has been sold. The buyer, my father in law got a super nice deal on this 2001 RWD Ranger Edge 3.0 V6 5 speed manual. I bought it with 61000 on the clock and it was just under 75000 when I dropped it off yesterday. I owned it just over 2 years and I took it from a dusty old basic truck, to a super nice modernized old basic truck.
Power locks, keyless entry, remote start, dash cam, power side mirrors, a backup camera, and foot well/under hood lights, leds in the glove box and cabin lights. I carefully loomed an managed all of the wires into factory locations, and loomed new runs.
When I bought it, I did plugs, wires, coil pack, air filter, oil change, fuel filter
I dynamatted the entire cab except for the roof, cut out space for 6x9 speakers up front, put 3 way’s in the front and rear with an Alpine head unit and in line amp. It sounds great.
I took the grill apart and plasti dipped it, and it came out great!
I dealt with the timing cover coolant issue
I rebuilt the shifter, and put a new knob on.
I just added new bed rails, and a toolbox
Finally my proudest moment/favorite part of the truck is the custom wood console cover I made because the stock one was beat.
I will miss him, but I needed to get rid of something and he was on the block. He’s also not gone far so I can visit. So we’re back to 4 in a single lane driveway. At least we don’t have to park on the street.
Happy Monday. I’m kicking mine off with a trip to the Apple store for new airpods because mine were stolen right out of the case :(
