Default My 87 Reg Cab Ranger Restore Project....

Hi Everyone I just wanted to show all of you My Project,

Hope You Like What I've done !!

I'll Start with What it looked Like When I purchased it for 250.00, It didn't run and was previously A work Truck....











I Found The Problem With The Truck Not Running (A Bad Fuel Pump Relay) And The Truck Ran GREAT ! So I got it smogged and Then Registered and Started Ripping into The Truck !















Then I Took it To the Bodyshop, it took 1 Month and ALOT of patience, While it was in the Bodyshop I placed an order with LMC truck, I ordered Carpet, all new Weatherstriping and Door Seals.

















And After It was All Done Here it is at My Friends Bodyshop, They Do GREAT work and Have Painted MANY Off-road Rangers and Street Trucks, They Are a PPG Test Center for Riverside County, So you know that it was done Right !





Here's One for all you Chevy Guys to get off on..... LOL ! (Just a side Note... I could have driven it home If I had my Bench Seat with me But Towing it seemed easier and safer.)



And After I got it back to my place I Started to put it back together and here is the FINAL Result !!



















There it is !! Here is One Final Picture, The Odometer....



It has 227,720 Miles on the ORIGINAL Transmission and Motor, It's a GREAT Truck and it's only gonna get better ! I have plans to Drop the front maybe 2 inches and the rear level with the front drop. I also Am Thinking about a Bed Rug or Spray in bedliner for the back.

Thanks for looking guys Feel free to ask any questions !

Troy.
