Vaughn Gittin JR’s famous tuning house creates the RTR Rambler concept. We take an in-depth look.
IF YOU follow the career of professional steerer Vaughn Gittin Jnr you’ll no doubt be aware he’s the brains behind Ready To Rock (RTR), an aftermarket car specialist famous for tuning Mustangs and F-Trucks.
RTR has since tweaked the US-spec Ford Ranger, debuting the RTR Rambler Ranger at the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. We were Stateside not too long ago and got a chance to give this stunning example a run on the sand dunes in Nevada.
Built on top of RTR’s production Ranger package – which includes the front grille, signature lighting, badges, fenders, and the wheel (RTR Tech-6) and tyre package – RTR has added a heap of Ford Performance Parts to the Rambler.
Extra kit starts with an ARB front bar with an integrated Warn winch, side steps, Yakima storage, a Yakima tent, an ARB air compressor, Fox Performance 2.0 coil-overs under the front, Fox adjustable shocks at the rear, a Ford Performance exhaust system, limb risers (branch deflectors), and Rigid Industries LEDs on a prototype light bar. And, interestingly, everything is modular.
