Unless you plan on working on the 84, then sell it...I suggest you keep both, whichever is more reliable, make a daily driver and dont mod...and build the other into a beast.

Keep the 84 for a work truck or just a alternate vehicle to go around in.

Keep em both! I'd use the newer one as a DD and a tow rig, and the older one I'd build into an offroader that's alright to beat up! No need to be street legal, you could use the newer ranger to tow it. Or whatever. That's what I'd do anyhow.

Working on gathering parts, paint, vynals, and such for the rest of the build LOL. I use this as an everyday truck, but it's also the only truck I have for hunting and general off road fun. Hoping to make it much better than stock!
