Casually surfing Facebook marketplace and stumbled across this 2002 ranger… let me tell ya…. This truck is a real gem.
Only has 126k miles, perfect body and interior, new tires, and it’s a 5 speed with 4 doors. Paid just over $1000 for it. Gonna be putting an engine in it and driving it for a while. My v8 ranger is starting to have some serious front end issues, so I’ll drive it for a bit with a for sale sign in the back window.
Will post better pics tomorrow when it’s not raining nearly as bad.

Nice...

Did the timing chain components let go and ruin the previous owners day?

You have this in the mini truck forum... is that truck not 4x4?

Did I pick the wrong section? Man I’m sorry! Yes it’s 4x4 and yes the timing chains blew out the valve covers!

Nice looking truck and by far my favorite front end for the Ranger. I had a white ‘02 with the same specs for a while.

I’m quite fond of this front end too. Looks tough 🦾
