Not Really new, but finally picked up a ranger

My Names Ryan, I've been a long time lurker. I finally picked up a 98 regular cab long bed with 132,000 miles after a long search Monday to keep miles off my 2011 Silverado.

It was wrecked previously. The po replaced the header panel, grille, headlights/corners, radiator and a couple a/c componets,. I had to replaced the airbags, airbag control module, and had new rotors put on(old ones were beyond warped).

I payed way too much for it, but I was tired of looking. But its has almost new tires and passed inspection after I replaced the airbags. I've got a total of $2000 in it.

Future plans:
-fix the blend door(its stuck to full heat)
-Paint the hood
-try to fix the grille alignment(core support is tweaked)
-Replace the bench seat(drivers side has seen better days)

Welcome to RF!

How long had you been looking for a ranger before you purchased this one?

Probably 6 months. Literally every Ranger/B-series or Focus that I was pretty sure I'd be driving home would be sold before I could get there.
