New member from NorCal

hello, my name is Matt, and Ive been registered on this forum for a little while, but never really posted until now. its a 1995 ranger 4.0 4x4 (still works!) with about 205,xxx on it. I'm currently installing a new 0 mile remanufactured Ford 4.0 with a 0 mile rebuilt trans i got for a good price.. The old motor had a good run, but now its time to retire it. It has 2.5x14" Kings up front and 2.5x16 kings in the back with deaver G50 leaf springs with a dixon bros bed cage. The truck was originally built by McNeil racing, but the rear was never finished, so I was able to do what i wanted to with the rear of the truck. Im a little unsure of what has been modified on the front beams, so I'd like to figure that out sometime.

anyways, here are some pics of it! Enjoy!

The bed cage wasnt installed yet when this photoshoot happened..

Great looking truck, and welcome to the site! After looking at your user name... maybe you have a '96 Mystic Cobra too or just a coincidence?

Nice! I'd love to get myself a old school mustang (preferably 67-68 fastback) one day to add to my collection. It's a bit of and addiction!

I guess I'm in for a surprise when I go to find one. I haven't looked into them at all yet since I don't have the time, space, or money for one yet.. lol.

Thanks!

It's a possibility, but I have to get it running properly before I can get to any meets. Lol. The new motor runs rough at idle, so I'm trying to figure out what's going on..
