Where to find odd parts

Hey guys. New to the forum and to rangers in general, so let me introduce myself. I'm Ty and I'm from north Mississippi. For the most part, I've driven land cruisers my entire life, with the exception of one Toyota pick-up and one full size gm pick-up (never again). I love my land cruisers, and they are highly dependable and capable vehicles, and were fine for DD's when I had a 5 minute drive to work. Now that I'm driving 40 minutes one way, 8 and 12 mpg's were no longer feasible.

That at brings me to where I am now. I picked up my ranger two weeks ago for a decent price, and am very happy so far with the purchase. It's a 1990 model, 4cyl 5spd, with 106k on the clock. I've started base-lining the truck by changing out fluids, and have various ignition and brake parts ordered to get it back to prime running condition. This little guy is clean as a pin, and I'd like to replace a few damaged and missing interior pieces to really make it stand out, but have had a hard time finding what I need.

I tried searching the forum before posting, but I couldn't pull up any results with what I entered, so forgive me if I'm asking something that has already been covered or have posted in the wrong section. I'm looking for interior door handle bezels and door panel armrests. I have literally drawn a blank searching for these parts on the Internet. If anyone has any suggestions on finding these, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks, and I hope to get some good use out of the ranger community her

Hi,

My guess is if you cannot find what you need at Ford, LMC truck, RockAuto, Partsgeek, or (NOS parts) New Old Stock on eBay you may have to find what you need at a salvage yard.

It is not surprising your having difficulty finding some interior parts for your 1990, my truck is a 2002 and many of the parts I would want to buy are no longer made by Ford or reproduced by the aftermarket industry.

Yes try Truck Parts & Truck Accessories for Chevy, GMC, Ford & Dodge Trucks | LMCTruck.com

Select Ford and Ranger then 1983-2011 years

type in door interior and then Search

Once you are in the Ranger section you can look for other parts as well

Your 1990 is a 1st Generation Ranger 1983 to 1992

Thanks Ron. I will keep that in mind. I've been on the road all day, and briefly checked out the LMC website. Looks like a great parts resource. Impatience got the best of me on the mobile site, so I just ordered the catalog. Now if I could just find that type of support for the cruisers, I'd be set!

Thanks again, guys. Will try to post up a pic in the correct section as soon as I figure out how.

I've been buying parts online and so far my mechanic's satisfied with it and I don't see any problems so far. As for odd parts, I don't have experience yet. I guess I need to follow this thread.

LMC is good but pricey as heck. Best to hit up salvage yards. I cant say ive seen many rangers especially that older style in salvage yards up here in the rust belt though. (hardly see any pre 93 rangers at all anymore)
