I could have used yous for a parts truck a month ago. I bought a bunch of little stuff that added up. Flywheel, tranny bolts, starter bolts, starter, revers light sensor, sppedo, sensor. I bet I laid down $500 in misc crap.
i could have made you a hell of a deal

I know.. I'll take off and sell everything i possibly can, axles, tires, wheels, windows, seats, air bags, tcase, trans if someone wants one that needs to be rebuilt ha.. At the same time.. its a ranger, no one builds Rangers around here except Me, Jacob and one we saw at Katemcy.. soooo i really want to build around the ranger body.

they're welded on.. i can cut them off where they meet the 4x4x1/4" plate welded to the frame, you'll just need new base plates.

shipping will be killer.

yeah dodge is, they where the first....chrysler.

You don't need a 7.3 with low miles cause they will go to 500,000 or better. One of our work trucks has like 550,000 miles and still runs like a champ. They are hard to kill

but the lower the miles, the longer i can drive it..

I'm kinda partial to the Cummins though... Another mechanic at work suggested not getting a Diesel "cause i wont be able to afford fixing it". If i don't get a 1-ton diesel it'll probably an 04ish 2500HD Silverado with a 6.0.


Today i decided i'll keep it, do the head gasket+timing chain ****, redo the anti-wrap bar mount AGAIN and wheel some more.. then when the slave gets real bad I'll do the slave and clutch.. thats where my mind is set right now.

its not as much that i really want to fix it.. but that its rare to see a built ranger and thats why i want to keep going with it. I should probably cut back on throwing the body into **** though
