nice handmedown hah. just start by cleaning it all up for now. either new stepbars or lose them like he said, looks much cleaner. and then it depends if you want to go more the offroad way or just stay stockish. then you can just focus on doing all the little mods people usually do on rangers. like the over head consoles from explorers, the center consoles from explorers etc.

I think it would look sweet how it is with maybe just a bodylift and 33s(wich is cheap.lift and finding some good 33's on craigslist or something),maybe some new rims,maybe black ones? or just get some newer 285s for the stock rims with some nice aggressive tread.

I was cleanin up the running boards and the botton of the drivers side is rusted through. So Ill probably just loose em. The front bumper im gonna sand and paint black I think. BL and 33's are a definite. Im definitely lucky to have gotten such a nice truck for my first car.

is the truck a 2door or a 4door? I got a set of running boards for a 2door sitting in my garage.

Some people will buy anything for a truck/car that bolts on. lol
Get rid of the visor, window covers, running boards, fix the exhaust..
I don't know why people don't throw away steps/running boards when they start rusting through. So many hillbillies here have steps that have literally rusted apart and only the to outside pieces are hanging on there. Lazy hillbillies.

Not bad for a free truck though! It just needs cleaned up a little.

Looked at the exhaust. I guess somethin broke from the muffler back and that was just a cheap fix. Ill get it later but not a top priority

for some reason, the only time a tan interior looks good is on a green exterior color.

are those door bumpers on there??

I'm sure it'll be a lot of fun.

Looks like one of ours, 'cept for the fact that ours is a 98. Looks good, I actually like the rear window covers though. xD
