I hate to let this go, but I cant let it sit due to my lack of free time. I have spent countless hours on this truck and unknown amounts of money designing and carrying out the plans.

Needs to have the injector pump rebuilt, and a few interior pieces (door handles and window cranks) and to have the door panels installed. maybe some paint for the bed (have JD green paint to be included with sale). I had to scavenge the battery and the tires for my Explorer, will need a battery. I will include the explorer wheels/tires that are curently on the truck (not the ones pictured)

It is a 2wd 1990 Ranger Standard Cab powered by a custom installed 5 cylinder 2.5 Mercedes Benz Turbo Diesel engine, makes 30PSI + boost, and 4 speed automatic transmission and the benz z-gate shifter. Has 3.08 gears in the Ford 7.5" rearend. Frame has been cleaned, treated, painted and undercoated. Has a 1990 cab (also cleaned treated painted and undercoated), and a 2000 bed with bedliner (the old bed was unusable when i started the project.) Has a 3" body lift, 4"/5" suspension lift, custom made drop pitman arm, Heavy duty power steering box from a 92 Ford F-250. Recent brakes, new calipers, and comes with all new e-brake cables, cab has rubber sound deadener spray and matting under carpet, K+N cone filter on custom aluminum intake tube, twin electric cooling fans, Full west coast mirrors, chrome overcab clearance lights (outer two flash respectively with turn signals, yet still function as markers), manual high idle (for warm-ups or high electrical load draw). Alternating emergency flashers (alternates L and R turn signals) Class IV towing hitch,full synthetic oil always used, has 300,000 mile cummins diesel blue antifreeze with sca additive, brand new shocks, brand new rear slider window, BateryBug Battery minder, heated washer fluid bottle, electric fuel tranfer pump, Grover air horn from a fire truck (not yet hooked up...may not be included with sale depending on selling price). Custom black interior/dash, new carpet. 2.5"/3" straight piped exhaust, Discreet CB radio hookup through existing am/fm antenna. Much much more to list. Before the injector pump let go I was getting about 41 MPG to and from work. Currently inspected untill sometime in 2011. Would make an awesome, cheap work truck, or great for someone to finish.



Have previous title, current registration, can seek out new title if sale depends on it.

Sale includes a large amount of spare parts and parts intended for the truck. Looking for a good reasonable cash offer. Will consider some trades, but probably wont consider full straight trades unless you have a good motorcycle with all paperwork.

I have a factory diesel, and can find no engine parts anywhere. It blew a head gasket, and I can find all the gaskets and belts I need but It'd be great if I could get a cam and rocker arm shaft for it. If I ever found another one with a diesel nearby I'd buy it.

This is why when my step dad drove his diesel ranger, he bought another for parts. They haven't moved out of his storage building in quite a while. I need to get some pics of them next time I am around.

I don't think he is ready to sell anything right now... I will try to talk him into it though because he doesn't use them.
