new guy with 93 5.0 ranger

What's up? New guy here from Missouri. I've got a 93 Ranger extra cab 2wd with a 5.0 auto swap. Its about wore out. Gonna get a complete rebuild this spring. I'm currently stockpiling parts for it so I can tear the truck down and rebuild it as quickly as possible. My future plans are a 3/4 drop, t-5 swap and paint. My other rides are a 97 trans am, a 98 durango, and my bike, a 66 triumph bonneville chopper.

Yeah, it is. Its hard on your back though. I've had it for 21 years now. my dad and I built it and then he gave it to me for Christmas when I was 16, then a week later I turned 17 and we tore it down and repainted it blue. I was a burgundy metallic, then we painted it laser blue pearl metallic. It was that color up until 2 years ago. I had this paint job done to it, and i finally got around to putting it back together.
