ok works been hectic so i haven't had time to ask,

it's getting horrible gas mileage as of now. one of the spark plug wires was against the header and it burnt threw. could that be why?

trying to find parts at the local u pull has turned up nothing. I know the 2300 is just a repackaged ranger, but i hear the taillights wont fit. is this true? i also need a bed liner, are these pretty interchangeable or would i need to find one for my model year etc? and finally for this set of questions.. it has this horrible carpet that was added sometime in it's long life. where can i get a carpet kit for the floor?

ohhh i lied one more, how do i find out that wheel dimensions? i would like to get some cheap rims, or at least new stocks. how do i find this out?

I will have pics 2maro, but she isn't pretty yet! keep in mind i payed $500 dollars...

hey welcome, from another floridan. changed my spark plugs last week. rangers are supposed to be gapped at .048ish and mine we .078. you could imagine how much power i got back. as long as the bed is the same size, the liner should drop right in. and i would try an online replacement store for an OEM carpet replacement, or switching to vinyl flooring.

not sure about your rims. our ranger bolt pattern is 5x4.5 if that helps you at all.
