Our good friend Chad Massey, better know as @sd_tremor on Instagram transformed his 2021 Ford Ranger into a capable trail machine that has taken him through the rugged trails of Imogene and Ophir pass in Colorado to tearing up the desert in Ocotillo Wells. Let’s take a look at what makes his Ranger Tremor Special.

He started his build from the ground up with Fox 2.5 DSC suspension, DeaverHD leaf pack from APG to handle his overlanding gear, RH fab UCA and extended shackles to tie it all together. Finishing it off is a pair of MRW 305s with Toyo AT3s that allow him to roll over any terrain.

He carefully crafted his Baja Designs light package for any adventure, starting with our Ford Ranger Squadron SAE fog pocket kit for illumination on road in inclement weather situations. LP6 Pros are mounted up front using SVC light bar mount, offering light through zones 2, 3 and 4 along with a pair of LP4s on SDHQ a-pillar brackets
for that overlanding clout.

Out back is a pair of S2 Pros in a chase light configuration. When asked about his choice of lights, Chad explained, “It’s probably more lumens than I’ll ever need, but hey, gotta have that slight overland clout, am I right?”

A Decked drawer system keeps his gear tidy and a Trailgate helps Chad cook up some epic meals while at camp. His Xtrusion XTR1 and iKamper Skycamp mini 2.0 is perfect for nights under the stars. Maxtrax MKII and rotopax round out the expedition essentials for where the trail may lead Chad on his adventures.

While Chad still has plenty he is looking to add to his Ford Ranger Tremor, there’s no doubt what he has built for himself so far has been a trustworthy rig that allows him to explore the world around him. “The fun doesn’t stop here. There’s a whole bunch more in the pipeline for this rig, so stick around and join me and my crew on our wild adventures!”
