Id like to introduce Mater the ranger he is my 91 ranger i picked up at the my neighbors house for free about a year ago it had a blown up 4.0 ohv with only 68,000 miles. i put a used rebuilt motor in it last winter and its had zero problems since, witch actually surprised me because it blew up in 2013 and it has sat buried in the weeds and bushes until i got it. this is my first truck i cant quit drive to school yet but i can next year but for now i got an agriculture license for work. the reason i call it mater is after tow mater in the movie cars because when i first saw it it looked like a rusty old pickup but upon closer inspection i can find zero rust. the other reason i call it mater is because it is getting a home built flatbed next spring.

the truck is pretty much stock other than i stuffed some 31x10.50-15 under it and ive got a jvc stereo and some Walmart speakers if you are wondering about anything else let me know.

Wow, that's quite the find for the price of a used motor! Bed looks in good shape - why switch to a flatbed?

thank you and the reason im switching to a flat bed is because what i use it for it will be more useful and i also just like the look of them.

What's the worst that could happen?
Great to see a youngin' wrenchin' on a truck instead of glued to PS5 - or whatever number they're at now.

Missed your first post, so welcome to TRS. Really nice looking truck too.

Keep your mind like an umbrella, it only works if its open... Continually learning.
Screaming deal for sure. Does your neighbor have any other free rangers sitting around.

Well as with my other truck i haven't updated anyone on it in awhile but i also Haven't done much with it due to running out of money lol but i did do new headlights and taillights. The headlights are for an explorer so some of the adjustment screws didn't line up but i made them work the taillights on the other hand were a project. They are for a bronco 2 and if you know how their taillights are vs a ranger you know the problem i ran into which is that lip on the top. But in the end it turned out nice

Also as you can see in that pic the truck finally got a 4in lift i still need to get it aligned but it works. Now after the lift i can fit bigger tires so im on a hunt for a good set of 33s but no luck yet.

They are pretty nice except the thing that you lock the bulb in the back with is junk it breaks when you try to put a bulb in but i just ended up using a little black rtv to hold the bulbs in

and a cat delete because it is legal in my area and im doing 3in all the way back with flowmasters will update whe that happens and i get enough cash
It is not legal in your area. Emissions are a FEDERAL law, that means it applies to any US state or territory and it is a federal offense to do cat deletes.

If you do it please do not post about it here. Forum rules do not allow discussion of emissions tampering.
