new member with a diesel ranger :)

Hey im new and ive just been browsing around a bit. I guess its time to show my ranger. Its a little dirty inside but in the summer im gonna clean it all out. Its a 1987 2.3l turbo diesel and i plan on a small lift with probably 31s and im gonna make either some stacks or a straight pipes out the back. Probably get the windows tinted to, but i dont really know. Hope you like it.

Here are a few pics

oh yeah forgot to say that. its for my glow plugs lol. The glow plug controller that turns them on when you turn the key broke somehow. Probably from too much moisture or water got on it. So i just hooked them up to the switch so i do it manually now. Because of course i cant find a replacement part. Ive tried ford and Mitsubishi(made the engine) for the part but no luck. It works better though because i can hold it a little longer for the really cold mornings.
