Post Son's 95 Ranger XLT salvage build>>>

My Son decided he wanted to do another V8 Ranger, so he took this one off my hands, as I picked up another 94 that I have listed as my RAT Ranger project:

I had picked up this salvage titled 95 Ranger XLT that somebody had used as a parts truck, they used the bed & rearend.

Haven't decided if I'm gonna attempt to pull the radiator support, or just replace it............

=============================================
355, will be BUILT T350, and his budget is more than some & less than others since Dad does the buildin!............I'd have to ask him to total up his receipts to this point, but I'll ballpark the motor at $2000 and the truck to this point around $1000............
