Sam Here. Hellos :P

I am new to the forum, got cut off on the posts I could view so here I am, a new member.

I know hondas, not rangers/fords. I own 0 hondas and 1 unfortunate ranger at the moment.
My truck has many issues that are about to start receiving some tlc. I may need some help along the way, so I am here and hope to find it from this forum.

Need anything done with a computer? Programming, Hardware, Web Development, etc... I mean anything really! I can do it, just ask and I would be glad to help.

Anyway, off to the other forums. As a preemptive gesture, I would like to go ahead and thank anyone and everyone that is on the "welcoming committee".

I just went outside to take some pics, and I am kinda embarrassed to share them. At some point, I hope to post before and after shots.

For now, just imagine a 00' Ranger XL 2.5 that you could find for $1000~...

The dents are plentiful, both bumpers are pushed/pulled slightly from their proper alignment, and the interior of the cab/bed are ready for some care.
It's also time to tend to the brakes, replace bushings and other suspension components. Driving it is similar to riding a unbroken horse, it bucks, kicks and for the most part does it own thing when trying to stay straight.

When I got the truck, it drove straight but was already past do for the suspension tlc. I've put maybe 2000 miles on it, in about 1 year. That was enough to cause it to start eating tires, and for me to park it.

Since the first time I saw/drove the truck, it has made a mean sounding clacking noise under the hood but it stills seems to go.

Yup, its "almost" dead...

Lets see what I can do with it with a little bit of help!
