Those are no excuses. Now that we are done with daylight savings when I work dayshift (6A-6P) I see no daylight unless I eat lunch in the cafeteria or walk outside. So after today I woun't see daylight til Friday morning. Its rather weird for the first few weeks.

Some real good work. I'd love to have a Ranger parking lot to do all kinds of projects with.

Keep up the good work

Nice work with the fubar'd bed, it looks really good.

Do you make much of a profit on fixing these trucks and selling them, or is it more like a hobby?

Sounds like something I'd tackle...lol and like you need a whole new body, it might be worth it to find a truck with a better body and swap frames if the drivetrains good in yours

I am not going to try all that... I have a Full size Bronco I have been parting (slowly) Was going to trim the floor panels out with a grinder (or plasma cutter) and weld them back into my truck.
As for the rest... Is it that difficult to change the fenders and hood out (which I already have). I am just a chicken to tackle the floor...
My welding skills leave a lot to be desired!
Beds are easy... Just have to find one.

I won't lie though... I would have much rather of had a 92-96 body... Just liked the truck better... Also seems to be more options for that year truck...

I have a welder but I'm not a welder...lol The hood fenders and bed are easy, just bolt ons. You might want to find a local welder to weld them in. Yeah I like the 92-96's also.
