Good Deal

Hey guys, I just bought a truck and its a 1997 ford ranger, it only has 65,000 miles on it and it runs great. The only bad thing it was only 2wd but I got a great deal it was only $1,500. What do you think I should do to it to make it an offroading machine.

I just bought 30' Goodyears, and it already has 4:10 gears. I was thinking about lifting it 3" but i dont know if that will look good or not.

Sounds like you got a good deal. Welcome to R-F! I would go ahead and lift it and put some bigger tires under it. Post pictures when you get a chance cause like they all say...
