Any first gyms around Georgia? Posting this for someone else he's looking for a 4wd ranger.

Says he would like it to be 1st Gen or 2nd Gen. Preferably four-wheel drive in the floor, Manual trans, possibly a good body.

Coming from me that would be a gem to find in a coal mine.

Much Appreciated.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
I know they’re available fairly often in SC

If your friend is still looking...I have a 91, 4.0 with operating A/C, auto, 7' bed that has a perfect body that could be available. I shipped the truck from FL to Iowa last Dec. when I moved here; that was the first time the truck had ever been North of the FL state line. The truck has never seen snow or salt. The metal is 100% top and bottom...zero rust anywhere in the vehicle. The suspension was rebuilt 2 yrs ago and has seen about 4300 miles since: ball joints, tie rod ends, shocks, and brakes ( front calipers and pads, rear shoes and one drum). The transmission was also replaced, with a crate rebuild, 4300 miles ago. The motor is sound with water pump, fan clutch, alternator, radiator coil and 3 injectors replaced within the past 1800 miles. 4 new tires, mounted on the original aluminum rims (very nice condition...no pitting) and center caps 1800 miles ago. The interior...replacement dash cover, new, premium black carpet complements the original red 60/40 seat that is about 85% "as new", door panels are 90% "as new", and the red headliner is absolutely 100 % perfect--no sags, tears or stains. The windshield is perfect (no chips, no runs and no errors) and no wiper tracks...The other windows are original and do have some scratches; but not severe. The bed has a spray on liner and a premium rubber liner both are perfect and the bed is covered with a premium tonneau cover also (as new" condition...no evidence of anything ever being in the bed--ever.
The only known issues with the truck...A. The oil pan leaks (I'm sure the pan gasket is leaking but I don't know if the rear main is leaking or not). B. The gas tank fills very slowly once you hit the 3/4 mark...empty to 3/4 is a normal fill rate; but, that last quarter goes slow.
I had planned to do a 5.0 /manual trans swap but my plans have changed so this truck could be available for someone else to do the swap...This is one of the nicest square body rangers still around and is ready to become either a really neat sleeper or a bold resto-rod. Tony : tonyduprey@msn.com

I will definitely keep you in mind Tony. I am still working on my daily at the moment but I am looking for a “nice cruiser/ sleeper”. Much appreciated Tony.

Thanks for the response. If you become interested, call me (863) 604-9516. I doubt anything will happen relative to a sale until spring anyway. By mid Nov, the truck will be in prepped for winter and in storage...it won't move again until mid to late March next spring.
