Good buy? UPDATE! I have pics of the truck

I am waiting for pictures from the guy about the rims and tires. I was thinking that they would be good to have on the Ranger when I go play at Attica this summer with my buddy. Anyone have an idea of what kind of rim he is talking about? Also, how are the pro comp mud terrains? They good in the mud? Hopefully gonna go look at the this weekend.

He emailed me back with mre good news. He has a parts truck that is a 95 Ranger 4x4 with the 2.3. It might have the rear-end that I am looking for. I am so ready to go look at it.

Ok here is the deal. I talked to him on the phone and he said he would sell me the whole thing for $200. The problem is that it has no title so it would just be a toy then or I could get what I want off it and just scrap the rest of it.

Here are the specs on the truck:
1995 regular cab shortbed (black)
2.3L
Manual trans
4x4
Lockouts
Dont know about the transfercase

Bad:
Runs rough, he says it needs a new coil pack casue he put the one off his truck on it and it ran better
Something about a busted front knuckle
Supposedly real dirty inside

So, hopefully sometime this weekend I am going to go look at it. Let me know what yall think please.

Went and looked at the truck tonight. It has 4.10 open. Needs a new axle shaft up front on the drivers side. It runs but rough. Trans feels good.

Question: Why would the 4wd and 4low lights blink? The truck did nothing when I shifted it into 4wd.

Here are some pics
