Looks like a good starter. Should be a fun project.

I have the interior strip out. The floor needs a lot of work. Pics coming. Not sure how I'm going to fix it yet. My buddy is going to help me. I have a feeling that this truck might not be my DD. The more I check things out, the more I want to do :-|

I think it will make a fun toy. Just have to figure out how far I want to take it. Have a few ideas but nothing certain.

Like I said earlier the interior is striped out so here is some pics of the floor pans situation.

This is the driver side.







This is the passenger side. its not as bad as you can see.







I'm going to repair it then spray the interior with bed liner. I might even spray the dash with it also. My buddy did his dodge like that and turned out good.

The rest is in good shape. I found a 1993 ford ranger. Might pick it up for parts if the cab is good. If cab is not good then I'm going to fix my cab. I can really use a the 3.0 from it. Mine has some problems. Did a oil change and once it is warmed up the oil pressure drops right down and knock little. Tap the throttle and oil pressure comes right up.





I have looked at the drive train to see what i'm starting with. DANA 35 front, ford 7.5 rear with 3.73 gears.




It has a M5OD-R1 and a 1354 manual t-case.



I think I'm going to swap in a 8.8 31 spline. Just not sure if I want to run 33's or 35's. I'm not ready for that yet so see what happens and what kind of price I can get for tires. See what this truck looks like. Just waiting for pics of the cab.
