new guy from ny

hi everyone. my name is john im 21 years old and from central ny. i used to own a 95 ranger xlt 2.3l 5spd 2wd. i drove this truck for about 150k miles till it finally caught on fire of january this past year. the truck had over 300k on it when i drove it to the junkyard on 3 cylinders lol. well anyways im looking into getting a new ranger. well not new but 85-95. looking for another 2.3l 2wd 5 speed. ive got one i may buy if the guy can get the loan approved for his new truck. its a 95 flareside 2.3 with 108k on it. hopefully that all works out well.

Welcome and good luck. You got any pics of your old truck... Say on fire or anything. Also maybe some of it before it was toast

i miss my old one. i have no need for the 6 cyl or 4wd really. if i can find a pic ill post it. it had 31 inch tires on it a visor and i had painted it a flat light olive color. with a set of tire chains and the diff lock that truck would go anywhere.
