right on. I'd love to just bore mine out and beef it up since I already have it. plus they have pretty good room to grow and parts are cheeeap. I just want to run it with minimal wiring cause its just a cluster ef in my engine bay since my inner fenders are gone

Ya but really when you break it down theres not many wires for the efi part of it the engine harness is really minimal actually. Its all the other BS in the new trucks that sucks like the abs all types of unneeded sensors, im thinning out as much as i can with mine for a cleaner look and less weight. Probably got 5lbs of wires out right now lol

He's right right andy. All you'd need is the basics.

Hey Adrian, sorry I hadn't responded to this. I will try and get them out and get dims and good pics of them.

I'm really thinking maybe I can get the motor rebuilt maybe before end of June and hopefully take the ranger to the dunes and then take it down for rebuild after. Just really itchn to bash it out there

Just got my summit catalog today. They have a federal mogul rebuild kit with .30 over pistons for 392 bucks. All gaskets freeze plugs ect. Figured I would pass that info along to you

Sand would absorb the oil, we could all run over and kick the sand on it and call it good.
Then tow your *** back to the park and call it a day.

haha sorry I haven't been on here in ages. nothing really for an update, the truck is half tore apart on jackstands right now. I plan to start getting some work done on it soo..I can't stand to see it just sit there. I need to get all the shocks off and suspension arms,hangers, leafs etc and get everythig cleaned up and repainted. then get the motor out and on a stand and start rebuilding it, or see if I can anyways depending on what I find. I have a coolant leak on the upper intake of the Nova I'm going to fix this weekend, then Its ranger time!

I'll get some pics this weekend

Did you decided on a paint scheme for the bumpers and everything. I was hoping for pictures of a fully rebuilt truck.

I'm thinking either a satin/flat blue body with silver tube,a-arms etc, or metallic gunmetal. Or black body with metallic gunmetal
