No. Buy a 4wd ranger. Way to much tome, money, and frustration when you could just buy one

Thanks... What ever i end up getting will be built up more aggressive then the current ranger, wife wants 4x4 for winter so i get crazy new truck.

Found an 83 sr5 4x4 but still can't figure out if it is the solid front axle and 22r motor..Still researching bunch of em. Gonna take best deal.
