hey, ive been wanting to show off my ranger for a while now but just been to lazy ,heres some pics of when i first got the truck in march of this year.
1994 4.0auto excab 4x4 auto with 297,237 yea i kno thats REALLY high but it was a good trade for my 84 z28.
the truck also had 4 different tires on it the ahole i got the truck from said that all the trans need was a filter but the little thing the makes it go from 1st the 2nd gear broke .all u have to do is let off the gas but its annoying.inter was nasty asall hell cig holes in the headliner ,dust everywere .but i still loved it.lost alot of pics that i had inbetween but ill tell you the story .first thing was inter .vacuum hole floor with seats out .carpet was grey,got some dye from walmart and now its black.camo seat covers,floor mats and wheel cover.after that was done it was just stuff had laying around to make it look better (tint ,paint,ex...).my dads friend gave me a chrome s10 brush guard with the light guards but they didnt fit.

The truck has 4 different tires huuu...a reason to put bigger new ones on.

From the looks of it you've got yourself a good project.

ya that's the piece. I've been able to find them in chrome and blue I think but no black. And I don't know how to get rid of chrome paint. Don't mean to jack the thread. The Truck is very nice!

its,cool .my buddy had the same problem on his yota.just take sandpaper and scratch the hell out of it, then take fine paper and smooth it out and then load it up with primer.now thinking about it thats what i did to my brush gaurd cause that was chrome.

havent really been doin anything ,its been raining for like 3 days.ive been trying to get ahold of explorer leafs, but you know people noone ever wants to be bothered.anyway now i have a bigger problem.as i was driveing home last night i thought i saw a deer so i put my high beams on then my lights shut off,then i go to flash my highs they work but if u put the lever back to slow the lights dont go on.so then i go my lights on some how idk i was just playing with stuff to try and get them on. so then i go to make a right turn onto my street and when i but my blinker on the lights shut off but they dont if i turn left.then to make matters worse i have baja lights on my brush gaurd that did work but i guess they didnt wanna last night so i had to drive home holding the high beams on. my dad thinks it the lever but idk
