Recently purchased a new project truck. 1987 short bed 2.9L 4x4. Truck used to belong to my wife's grandfather and has set in a barn for the past 10 years. Solid truck overall.




I drove an 87 long bed 2wd when we started dating 22 years ago and her grandfather would talk my ear off about my truck. This makes my 3rd ranger owned.
Let the fun begin.

Nice truck. I feel like you find a lot more long bed 4x4's than the sort beds.

Me too. I was just thinking that I don't see the stripe on a lot of Rangers anymore. My 83 was brown with 3 tan stripes at the bottom with "Ranger" on the doors. Gotta keep the stripes, man.:icon_thumby:
