Father and son designers Neil and Collin Tjin are at it again. Their 2019 Ford Ranger Tjin Edition features a wide low street-ready stance.
Following up their purple RTR Ford Mustang from the 2018 show, the Tjins were looking to create their unique take on Ranger, going the opposite direction of a lifted Ranger, which is one of the most common modifications made to Ford’s midsize pickup truck. Tjin Edition is among the first new-generation Ford Rangers slammed to the ground via an air suspension, lowered 8 inches in the front and 9 inches in the rear. Tjin worked with JR’s Wheels and Tires to provide a sinister look, fitting Falken tires on custom 20-inch Rotiform LHR-M three-piece wheels. The 2.3-liter EcoBoost is upgraded with a Roush Performance intake, a Ford Performance cat-back exhaust and differential cover, Optima yellow-top battery and RPG front-mounted intercooler. Stopping power comes from Baer six-piston calipers and 14-inch rotors in the front and rear.
Styling changes include a set of RTR fender flares, an RTR grille with triangle LED lights, custom BASF yellow applied by L&R Auto Body, a one-off wood bed floor in black with stainless steel hardware, retractable bed cover from Retrax, PowerTank CO2 system, Rigid fog lights and Lumens bed lights. The cockpit features four Recaro Sportster CS seats that recline, plus Schroth harnesses.
