Auto's #5

Well this is my fifth ranger. It is a 99 3.0 auto with 215k. When I bought it. It wasn't running. I spayed some starting fluid in it and it started right up. So now the plan is to wash it its covered in tree sap. Change out the seats and carpet and windows. And It has a broken shackle.

From the first two pics it looks normal.

Well I don't want to mess the paint up under the scoops so they might just have to stay on.

So I found a parts truck cheap with a 4.0 auto so im going to do a cab swap and just put the maroon cab on the black frame. I started tearing some of it apart it did have broken grill headlights and header panel on it . and a back bumper and tailgate.



















and some how after all of that the antenna is still straight
