New Ranger Owner from So. Cal.

I'm new to this forum and a "new" Ranger owner. I bought a 85 Ranger last month and so far I love the truck. While it's a bit on the aged side, it's in pretty good condition. It does have some issues, but they're more cosmetic than mechanical. I look forward to getting some good info from the other members on this forum. Thanks Mike aka Mikey

Thanks for the warm welcome. It's much appreciated. I'm going to keep this truck on the pavement as it's only 2WD. I'm hoping that someone has one the same year as mine and knows of a good source for parts. Here's a pic of my truck.

For starters, a new grille & new bench seat. I'd go with buckets or a 60/40 combo if it'll fit the same holes in the floor. I'm not familiar with what yrs are consistent as far as parts go.
