If you follow BDS you've likely seen us talking about Project RangerX in the past, This 2019 Ford Ranger was one that we build up in 5 short weeks back in 2018 to debut in Ford's Booth for the 2018 SEMA Show. You can learn all about this build, the specs and how it came together by clicking here. 

If you're still reading this rather than taking a hard left into the build history the most recent adventure for RangerX was a Fall color tour around our home state of Michigan. After a quick once over in Michigan this truck made it up to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes to tackle the terrain. From there, we headed up to the Tunnel of Trees, over the Mackinac Bridge, and into the UP (Upper Peninsula) for some trail riding.

RangerX provides a comfortable and quiet ride when on road, and a performance-based experience when off road. We enjoyed having this rig along for the trip and we look forward to the next adventure we get to have with it. For more on this most recent [Off] Road-Trip Adventure click here.
