I've got 3 BII's that I'd let you have your pick from. Spare 2.9 engine too.

Curiosity is getting the better of me. Are any of them solid? What kind of shape are they in??

Also, do you have a thread on here showing your Ranger? I was looking, but couldn't find one. Likes pretty nice in your avatar.

The 89 or 90 model is the best one as far as the body goes, but I removed one rear leaf spring shackle and maybe the frame bracket. I can't remember. It does need a new grille and other front end stuff. Both fenders are good if memory serves me, as well as the hood. I think it was only the grille and headlights that suffered. Small deer incident. It would make a very nice BII when put back together. The interior was really nice and the paint/body is in great shape. Engine and trans have been removed.

The 88 was burnt under the hood. It's garbage except for the chassis and suspension/axles. I bought it for the trans. Engine is garbage.

The other 89-ish Bronco is rusty. Trans was out and I bought it because it ran so good. For a spare engine..

89 Ranger single cab long bed 2.9 5spd manual transfer case needs love. Needs a cheap paint job. I cut the rear wheel wheels larger to remove the cancer and fit larger tires. Never got around to the front.. Runs but has another cracked head. It's cracked like 5 heads on two different blocks, including a Jasper rebuilt. Everything works on it though.

I've got a blown up 2002 4.0 extended cab 5spd too.

The mice are slowly getting to all of them though.



As for my trucks, I don't have any build threads on them anywhere.

I keep looking at that Bronco II for $2500. I'd still need to locate a 4 inch lift and some extended radius arms. I'd use cut out fender flares to fit 33's.

I'm starting to feel like Hanible Smith from the A-Team.
