  • New Casting - '83-'88 Ford Ranger 4x4

    Life from the JL line . . .

    This was posted on their FB page on 3/12/21.

    THAT’S A FORD FREAKIN’ RANGER
    JOHNNY LIGHTNING 1983-1988 FORD RANGER 4x4 TOOLING MOCKUP (1:64)
    We ain’t no stranger to the Ford freakin’ Ranger. The ultimate Ford “pup-truck” heads to the Johnny Lightning tooling bank as we continue our development on the 83-88 model! This 3D printed tooling mockup is the first look at the Ranger and boy does it look good! This model features an opening hood with detailed engine, functioning tailgate and newly tooled wheels too!

    Tooling mockup subject to improvements in production.

    I wonder if when Round 2 said they’re investing in JL, that meant they will scale them better. I think the Ranger looks very swell, though.

      So psyched for this and the Monte Carlo, and so glad Round 2 is investing into the JL line with new castings.

        Like others it is nice to see an actual new casting coming from JL rather than the overpriced reissues that they have been putting out.

          And four-wheel-drive!


          There's a lot of 1/1s around here, and I myself am looking at getting a last-gen; but if the price is right, I may go older. Having a half-ton truck ('98 Dodge RAM 1500) is great--but parking them ain't.

            Neat.....looks like it's the V6 under the hood.

              That is awesome I used to own a 94 Ranger but would be happy to have this one a course!!!! Thanks for the pictures too!
              Due to the recent budget cuts,
              the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
              current state of the economy, the light at the end
              of the tunnel has been turned off.

                For anyone who is panicking that it would be too small or too large.
                These new JL castings are scale accurate 1:64 bodies. They will utilize Johnny Lightning tires and the new wheels are designed to be utilized on other JL castings as well. Thanks!

                  I don’t think anyone else remembers this is one of the trucks from the beginning of the Back to the Future movie.

                      I like it! With the separate bed piece...maybe they are planning variations there? Extended cab? Maybe even a Bronco II?

                        2012 Ford Explorer, it was the blue one Marty hitched a skateboard ride on when he was late for school. It was a regular cab exiting a ‘Burger King’. The black truck was the one he owned at the end. Goodness me, I’m a movie geek.

                            The black one was a Toyota, wasn't it?

                              Yes, it was.
