I wasn't sure if it was ok to post this or where, so I decided to play it safe. When i saw the video, though, I knew someone here would be interested. (Unfortunately he doesn't give a price.)

Highlights from the video:
  • It's an auction purchase bought by a recycling center for resale.
  • It has a 2.9 and a bad battery
  • It has a bad reverse in the transmission.
  • Jay says it was sold, but in the notes he says the sale fell through and is for sale.
  • The frame looks great
  • It's 2wd
The Ranger is in Chesnee, South Carolina

Here's the full address.:
221 Recycling Center​
903 S Alabama Ave​
Chesnee, South Carolina 29323-1901​
(864) 461-0250​

And the video for you to enjoy.

That's right. I'm expanding the "save the 2.9s" movement to the rest of the Internet.
Dude its useless to argue with people on youtube. Lol. I got in an argument with (im assuming) a kid who said his 93 civic was making 700hp because it had a cold air intake and a chip.

Imagine if you put this on your 460


It would be like a fighter jet made of Eagles! ;missingteeth;

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
That's a 30 minute drive for me. I'm not interested. But I could probably help someone get it. I don't have a lot of cash to work with and don't want to get stuck with a deal falling through.
