My new 99 ranger!

Hey guys, new to the forum! So, I got myself a 99 ford ranger. Unfortunately its not the best way to come upon a vehicle.. I rolled my buddies ranger the other night and now its mine. Its a 99 single cab 2wd 3.0 5spd. I rolled it about 30mph 2 full rolls then landed back on its wheels. So I have the ranger sitting in my front yard and cant seem to figure out what to make of it. Not sure what the best option is and was hoping for some input. I am a mustang guy and have actually been thinking of getting a ranger to pre runner and daily drive to keep miles off my mustang. Anyways... I was wondering if its common for people to sell Ranger "rollers"( rolling chasis minus drivetrain) I know people do it alot with mustang but wasnt sure about rangers. Lookin to make the best out of this and somehow end up with a ranger haha. I will post pictures shortly(if the forum lets me).

Austin-

You roll it, you buy it. I'd hate to buy a Ranger that way.

To answer your question, I'm sure someone would be interested in buying it for parts.

If you weren't in California and were somewhere in the Ohio area I know wvcat would buy it from you to rebuild. He rebuilds Rangers all day. Rollovers, bent frames, whatever. But I mean, you could put it up on Craigslist and see what you get.

What did you do? try and take a corner in the Ranger at the same speed you'd take it in your Mustang?

haha nah the mustang built for the 1/4. I was drifting it around a big open field in the orchards and the rear passenger tire hit soft dirt and dug down and rolled it. I actually rolled it toward the passanger side and got air then landed on the driver side.
