Auto's #7

I got an 04 Ranger 4.0 auto. It needs some body work and has a little engine problem I think its the timing chain rattle. And its leaking power steering fluid out of both sides or the rack. But everyone likes pics so here you go.

Yeah it needs some work it has 158K but I picked it up for 1600. My plans are to first figure out the engine problem. Then after that start to fix the body like a new drivers door. Then I was thinking of a 2-tone paint job of maybe DSG and DWB but idk yet. Oh and it will get my 3in BL off the 99 and I will get some 33's. And sine the bumper is dented pretty good and I don't want to buy another one it will get painted or maybe I'll bed line it and the valance.

If some one gets a min If you could PS me a pic I was kinda thinking maybe DSG on the top and bottom with the DWB between the body lines. But with the raised part of the hood and a painted grill DWB. or maybe the other way around IDK But i know I want the dome of the hood and grill to be a diffent color then the rest of the truck.

Here is a vid of the noise its making. Like I said I havn't looked into it at all yet.

When it starts out its in drive then I put it in neutral then back to drive and it stalls. Then back in drive reving the engine a little bit.
