so you are wanting to sell the ranger, buy a DD then shortly after buy another project????

why not go buy a cheap beater car for a DD? Do your mods, save up and get a better DD/tow rig.... just seems pointless to sell your project to buy a new one and start over...

not SHORTLY but eventually yes. cause i want to change EVERYTHING short of the body.. front/rear suspension, engine/drive line, axles, tires/wheels, steering... it just makes more sense to start over than trying to fix it all.

that and i hate cars, its just not me and how am i supposed to pick up at 14b, D60 or V8 with a car lol? I can find a built jeep or buddy for a decent price eventually if i want to go that way.
