1990 Supercab 4wd Owner new here

Just picked up the Ranger on Friday night, while driving it home blew the Tranny by pushing it too hard.

72k original miles
4.0 4wd with the A4LD, looking at options on whether to go with a reman right now and build my blown one or switch to manual or not right now
It has Headers on it right now, no exhaust behind the cat, A/c need's a recharge, and interior is in great shape, Title was nothern so there is some rust underneat but plans will take care of that:

Mod's to come are:

Tranny obviously, next 2-3 weeks will be getting it taken care of
2 inch body lift so that I can take care of the rust underneath
Dual exhaust, can't really drive right now as its straight off the cat...
Wet Okales or other Neoprene seat covers for inside
4 or 6inch suspension lift - whatever it takes to fit 35's
Cutout Flares - have some rust on the bed, and I love the look of cutout flares
Paint job - will be last thing I do

Me, Currenty have a 77CB550 project bike - Cafe Racer
A 2002 Saleen S281 that I built, but am currenty parting out and putting back to stock - then selling
1992 4Runner - built but for sale

Ranger is taking the place of all the above toy's, then I'm buying a house here in Florida and I'll get more toy's, think family oriented toy's though - boat, jet ski's, 4 wheeler etc...

bought the truck to be my Daily driver that I will mod slowly, ok, probably not too slow, but within 6 months expect all the above mods to be complete, just need to sell the other vehicles off and then pay the remainder of my credit card bills off and I'll start putting 500-1k a month into it fixing it up so won't take long once I start:)

Pic's soon as I get it running and cleaned up - so might be a few weeks;-)

Thanks guys, and I'll get around to some pic's soon, in a new relationship and a single dad so between the 2 kids, and entertaining the new woman, along with working on my tinker toy's and putting them back to stock to sell, I'm not online much at home, just jump on at work and i'm still on a Ton of Stang forums, not to mention Toyota Forums, and DotheTon type of forums for the Cafe Racer...

Hahaha - you guys will slowly become one of my new loves, but one step at a time, forgot to mention, my first vehicle was a 88 Ranger that I paid for in High school, blew the little 4 Banger after Walmart didn't put the Oil plug back in so my father and I threw a 91 302 and T-5 in it back right as I was joingin the military, drove it for a while till I warped the frame on it, sold it in 98 and wanted another ranger since. Had about 20 cars and trucks since then but trying to simplify and get into that first house purchase - military hasn't kept me still for very long but Recently got off Active duty and Joined Reserves so I won't be moving - time to settle down for the kids:)
