Hi My name is Vinny and I'm a Ford Ranger owner

I've never owned a Ranger. I bought this truck for a dump runner for my plumbing business. It just kind of fell into my lap and I couldn't pass it up for the shape it was in for an 89 Ford in New England. 118k, extremely little rust, 400 bucks. Now I'm finding myself trying to get it back to near perfect. The older driver, drove by braille, so I needed a new gate and hood. So far I've found a hood, gate,bed liner and bought new tires and rear springs (he must have thought it was a 1 ton?) Now the only thing I think it needs is 4 more cylinders But, with gas the way it is I might just get use to the 4 it has. I'll get some pics on in a couple of weeks when I'm done. See Ya,
