It might be a custom because it has ABS brakes

No , there was, i saw it in a catalog under 89 custom 2.3 , I know the history of the truck it has been in my family since it was bought and i know the emblems have never been tampered with.

I am usually a pretty smart Ranger connessieur, so I guess there was a 1989 Ranger custom. I have to admit during that time of my life, I was In the Navy and rangers were on the back burner.
