Icon4 Newbie from Missouri

hey everyone

New guy from Missouri.
20 y/o goin to college so mods need to be cheap.
i've rebuilt a few old cars with my dad and finally got a project of my own.

I've had my ranger for a little over a year and i'm obsessed with it.
i saved it from the scrap yard and i've been attached to it since.

1987 Ranger Short bed
originally had a 2.0 but i swapped for a 2.3 from a rally car and glasspack exhaust (its very loud)
2inch lift in the rear to make clearance for the Cragar SS wheels i had put on.
Roll bars in the bed with KC lights
and more Lights on the bumper

I took out the bench seat cause i was too tall and my knees rubbed the steering wheel. I welded in the bucket seats from my wrecked grand am and they look awesome.

i hope to replace the engine again soon because this one has been used and abused. Hoping for a v8 but will settle for a v6
and i would like to make it 4wd but that would require some work and parts that i don't have the money for....

hope you guys could teach me a few new tricks and help me out with this little truck.
