#22 Here we go again!

Towed this one home last night but she needs some work. The motor is locked up and the bed is bad. The whole front of the bed floor is rusted and the tailgate. On the bright side the truck has 4wd, 4 doors and pretty nice interior...On to the pics...

Yeah I'm going to change the oil and put some antifreeze in it and then see how it runs. You still got those side steps? They would probably look good on this truck

Well if you got the hook up in SoCal then let me know. I am looking for a 97 and older ranger. Don't care about engine running or not or size and don't care weather its extended cab or regular cab.
