Cool New Ranger owner from WY

Hi there. Just joined the forum because I would like to get some insight from all the ranger lovers on how to's and maybe a little more. I've only had my truck for a few months now, but I love it and wouldn't trade it for the world. And declining a friends offer to buy it for three times what I paid for it should attest to that. Its an 88 STX with an Ext Cab and a 2.9 Liter V6 4x4 and as far as I know everything is stock on it. I have a few issues with it that I hope to get resolved and get to loving it more.

Sounds like it. I was pretty excited to get my LMC catalog yesterday for the truck. A friend advised me not to get it because it would be the end of my bank account. lol The same friend who told me to get a catalog. What a friend.

Lol we just dropped a 383 into my roommates chev, and ordered a TON of front end body parts from LMC, they make good stuff. His truck is coming along nicely. We might have the bastard painted by the end of the week lol
