Buying my first ranger

Hey,

I'm fairly new to Rangers but not to Ford trucks. I'm looking at this one http://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/cto/2204519875.html
I want to swap the hood back to stock but other than that its what I'm looking for, prolly going to paint it either DSG or OW

Isn't that ranger over here in San Diego? I have see it on the craigslist here. Looks good. Not sure what it is running for suspension though. Looks like fabtech coils so maybe a mid travel kit.

Those hoods are like $500, it just needs a 01-03 4x4/Edge Mesh grille to complete the look. Looks pretty solid though, not sure about the lift, defiantly not a long travel kit and I see some fabtech blue on the springs. You can't jump trucks with the fabtech spindle lifts, they are for show only.

And I also noticed in this pic that his passenger tire is very low on air and it need an alignment, the toe-out on the driver wheel is crazy.

Im not real concerned with how it looks, I just want a Ranger that I can do some light wheeling with (when I want to do real wheeling I'll park the Ranger and grab the Bronco). This will be my beater truck/DD

I listened, I told him I wanted more pics and it needed to be aligned before I'd buy it. Thank you.

HAHAHA I gotcha. It LOOKS like it could be bad *** prerunner. I thought you meant "that looks like it is a bad *** prerunner, like it actually is or something. Boy, voice inflection really gets lost in text lol.

Pretty color. Needs some rear lift. I bet those tires rub like crazy.

Is it stock height? Looks like it has zero lift on it.

I think its stock height, I asked for more information. I like the stance but I'd definitely lift it if I got it.
