thanks guys, ive found quite a few of these on craigslist in the area with beat motors. i was looking into a full frame swap for 4x4. but after thinking about it, its not all really worth it. so i'll soon be buying another ranger thats already 4wd. also have a nice 302 for it, and a t-5. i'll do a write up of the whole thing.
the specs on my truck are as follows
100% stock all the way to the head unit lol. i have pretty big plans and dont feel like hacking up such a nice truck when another platform would be best. id be pissed if i scratched the paint on mine.
