Ranger Rebuild!!

so a while ago i rolled my truck and totaled the cab. i got a 2wd 1999 4.0 auto with power everything for $800 bucks a couple days later. drove that around for a while looking for a manual tranny and t-case but decided to just throw the auto 2wd stuff on my frame for now so i can drive it. i bought the new one for the cab and bed and i got a 4.0 out of it to. so heres the pics so far.

Glad you're ok! I think you will like that gold color, I have it and it doesn't show the dirt as well and I figure you will probably get dirt on it!
