Real??? or is it something someone has made??

Would love to find one if it's real :shok:
A chick that I went to college with, had one... at the time. It was extended cab though.

Had some seriously wide tires on the rear.

Ever since i have pondered why a place would have such an unusual time zone.
Wait..... am I understanding this correctly? Boggin' and his gang are not just hours, but minutes off for their time zone?

:icon_confused::icon_confused::icon_confused:

EDIT: I'm truly sorry Mr 85Ranger, I didn't mean to jack. I've got to hear the explanation of this though.

1988 ford zimmer package

This was originally posted back in 2011 with a photo of a 1988 ford ranger xlt zimmer edition. The truck in the photo was my truck and I've been looking for years to get it back. My dad purchased it for me and because of financial struggles at the time I had to sell it. One of the hardest decisions I've ever made and regretted it ever since. The picture below is me in the truck back in 1988. Please let me know if anyone knows who the owner of it is so I can reach out to them.
Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

That is a bummer. Since nobody really added anything substantial about the story of a Zimmer do you have anything to add? What the package was, who built them etc?

Not sure if running a carfax would help or not, might get in the right area if it is still around (and if they go back that far)

Mine was purchased at a dealership in Augusta GA in 1988 brand new. I think the dealership bought it from a custom car shop, but not sure where. Unfortunately I don't have the vin or anything to lookup via carfax. Here is a photo of mine. Almots identical but different color scheme. It was an XLT with extra wide back tires & wheels (not dually). Interior was red with a upper console attached to the interior roof. Anyone with ideas on how to track it down or a miracle shot if you actually know where it is today it would be greatly appreciated to let me know. Thanks!
