Need to add that one to your signature. That FL truck looks weird with snow on it. I wouldn't mind having that pre-wreck.

I paid 800 for it but I really wanted it because of the 4 door cab. If it wasn't 4 door I might not of paid that much. Yeah the windshield is cracked and back window is broke, it fell out on the way home. I have a couple spares. Yeah Mike I need to move the 99 down to the bottom too...lol

Its a clean truck. The interior is almost perfect and under the hood is real clean. The guy got it off his grandfather.

Id say leave it the way it is no reason to swap it to a different frame and what not.... How are you going to sell a 4wd truck when the vin comes up as a 2wd?

Well I only keep one truck at a time and I prefer the 4wd. I plan on keeping it because of the extra doors. I am not really crazy about red trucks so it will go when its time. I have only sold one truck I converted to 4wd...no problem. Thanks for your help Brian, sure made my life easier. I like the color on the new truck also but I am already thinking fx4...lol

That is awesome what you do rebuilding rangers. My uncle owns a body shop and does the same thing. Me and my brother both have rangers that we helped him rebuild.

Sure Jared bring it on...lol
No thanks Cody, I Like the regular beds better.

My daughter took my camera today or I would have taken a couple pics. The frame swap is in progress. The cab is still hanging in my garage but the frame is under it with the motor sitting in place. The old frame is outside and still has the bed on it. I still have alot to do but a 4 day weekend is coming up :)
