Ranger has to go!

Well, I know I'm new here but with the number of problems and the possiblity of more and more serious problems ahead I have to let the Ranger go! See I bought this cause I thought I could fix her up a bit, cheap and make a good truck out of it but it seems the gods are not on my side After number of problems and a rich running condition the gas wanted to be more in the oil than in the pan! I didn`t catch it in time and now there is some rattle. I replaced the oil that ran out like water and put some 20w/50 in to try to save it but I think I better unload it now! So, I am trading it off for a 1999 F150 ext. cab 4x4 off road with 86,000 miles here is a pic. Hope I am still welcome here Name:  mytruck.jpg

That's a good looking truck you are getting! I would love to have an '03-04 FX4 in that same body style. They are good trucks!

Thanks everyone, and the lift, in due time. Going to put some tires on there and maybe some kind of leveling kit on the front for now.

Sucks to hear about the Ranger, some weren't made to be.

I'd kill for that style of F150, 5.4L, auto, 4x4 that or a 98'+ Dodge Cummins :P
