This past weekend was my buddy's birthday and he wanted to go take his Ranger to the off road park and play around with his new drone. here are a couple of the photos and the video I put together. Nothing special, just for fun. First time off road for the Maverick, first time with his drone, and a first time in a long time editing video. Don't be too harsh lol.

Only problem I have with this is that you guys need to realize this is a family site and quit making those "dirty videos." LOL. Just joking of course and great videos.

Nice video man!

Everything I see about these trucks off-road gives me nothing but confidence. I honestly believe that ground clearance is the limiting factor. I don't see traction as the main issue, especially with some quality AT tires installed.

Literally the only issue was ground clearance. I made it through a couple spots with ease that the Ranger had difficulty with.... But when the ruts or rocks got too tall, I couldn't go. I'm still debating back and forth between lifting and lowering it... I'll probably never decide lol.

I was a little worried about having a unibody truck but seeing them driving off road and now the tremor coming out, I won't have to worry about strength for mine on the road. She'll never see anything except maybe a dirt road. Hybrid and front wheel drive isn't made for off road. Besides, I'd rather ride my RMZ450 in the dirt and mud! Nice video too with appropriate music!

I'm installing the 2-inch Eibach lift springs soon. That'll get me as far as I ought to take it, and if I don't have enough clearance with that, I probably shouldn't be taking the truck down that trail anyway...

Interested to see how things will look after the lift springs- My H&R units definently raised the truck more than the advertised 1.5 and removed the "rake" - Liking them so far and its great getting that front snowplow/picnic table front bumper and valance up off the curb- lol

Yep that front bumper is something! I'll be posting lots of photos and videos once it's installed.
