In case anyone still looks at this thread. This is what it looks like now. Been putting a lot of dirt miles on it lately.

Have wondered where you went to. That ranger is still my all time favorite prerunner, and in the body style I love. Truck looks f'n excellent.

Ya I will try to post when our next desert trip is to see if you would like to join.

Yes I was surprised to see Bobby posted his for sale. Doubt he actually gets rid of it.

As far as the coronavirus goes... as someone that owns 3 small businesses it has been quite torturous. Hoping to survive this financially but we'll see, so far it's looking rough. How about yourself?

Will see if I can make it, and meet you and see this Ranger in person. Bobby can't sell his truck, that is a great looking prerunner also. My second favorite body style is what he has. This virus has hit socal hard, and I am doing all I can to continue to stay away from people. San Diego is almost on lock down as alot of things are closed included the beaches.

I do see a license plate and windshield on your Ranger, are you driving this on the street? Do you know someone somewhere like I do for registration?

ya I found a guy that helps with the license plate. Put a windshield in and took off the numbers and some stickers to make it look more mild in an effort to be more street legal-ish. But it is sooo loud, so it still grabs a lot of attention. I’m having quieter mufflers made and that may help. For now I don’t go very far on the road.

Hopefully the kind officer won't notice, since it's way louder than our beloved state's 97 db level on the exhaust. A carbed 5.0 with quieter mufflers, old school here...therefore I have always loved them ole v8's with the right sound. I totally get what your doing and I commend you for driving your ranger on the streets again. I have heard some older 302's with flowmaster 50 series, and they did sound good.

Came across your youtube channel, and have checked out some earlier videos of the ranger. Do you have any current videos of the truck that you can upload to your channel? Would love to see some current actions of the truck.

I do but I’m not sure how to post them? I’ll try to figure it out.
