Default Sadly :(

Sadly, my ranger is in rough shape, (the engine and transmission are better than ever) But its in rough shape interior wise, i have the rareish twin stick fx4 and the truck was previously owned by my dad and used as a work truck and it shows the sign of being a work truck. It needs a new searing wheel, there is paint on it and the leather wrapped stitching is coming off. I need a new shift boot and bezel for it because the boot is messed up and the bezel is cracked, i need two new FX4 seats (the black seats with the whits/silver sport stitching) Because they have large tears in them, as for exterior and doors, my rear doors have rust on the latches which is an easy fix, the passenger handle on the outside is loose, and there are paint chips everywhere. Rust bubbles starting to form up by the top outer portion of the windshield. And my major problem is that the under body is caked with rust, since i plow. So anyone got any suggestions? Can you get the body taken off the frame and have a body shop sand blast the rust off? then i was going to paint it and oil undercoat it. Can i do that? Thanks.

I know you can take the bed off pretty easily, but I'm not sure about the cab. For the seats and other random items you might want to check out some local junk yards, but have a professional replace your steering wheel because of the airbags.

You could get someone to sandblast it for you, but I'm not sure how much it costs. I would just get a power sander, do it yourself, and save the money. Most of it should be pretty flat so shouldn't take too long if you have a couple hours one weekend.
