New (to me) truck... finally!!

Well finally, after looking for a couple months... and running into financing problems i have a Ranger again. My parents helped me out, actually paid for it for me... i just have to pay them back. It'll be a good truck for the time being... bank some funds and than when im ready get something brand new...

Specifics -

1998 Ranger XLT regular cab 4x4
3.0L
5 Speed manual (still need to learn how to drive it... sad huh lol)
150K miles, well maintained and taken care of

$3000

here is the one pic i have so far of her...

Already have a list of mods to do lol

- Replace the flag style mirrors
-Add factory cruise and tilt wheel
-replace rear bumper with chrome one (its black and bent)
-Tint the windows
-Replace radio with factory CD/Cassette with RDS
-New headlights and clear corners (the previous owner put some funky aftermarket ones on, and they're all yellowed with condensation)
-Dual Exhaust
-Replace rims and tires (i want the stock tear drops with 265/75/16s) Im not a fan at all of the rims he put on there, but they'll work for now.


it needs a couple things replaced..
-Radio bezel
-New antenna wire
-the molding on the outside under the window is rusted out
-replace carpet (he put black carpet in, and it doesn't fit right at all)

Otherwise, the truck is real clean for a 98 and very well taken care of.... just needs a few things done to make it mine.

Anyway, let me know what u guys think...

-Brad
