Good Morning All -

I bought my daughter a 1988 Ranger last night. I dont know a whole lot about it yet, but I will update my signature when I get more information. It is in surprisingly good shape for being as old as it is. There are a few cosmetic issues on the inside of it, and I'm sure it will need some engine work. It has new tires and rims and a new paint job. The windows are tinted and it has a Monster emblem on the back window. To be honest...i think that's what sold her on it. LOL. The previous owner replaced the door lock buttons with skulls and she liked that as well. She is so excited about it. I look forward to reading some of the other posts on this site. I'm sure i will be asking a ton of questions as we start fixing the things that need attention.

Have a great day!

Stef

Welcome to the forums!

Sounds like your daughter has good taste, lol. As long as she isn't afraid to get her hands dirty with a little bit of work here and there, she should be very satisfied with her Ranger.

I'm pretty new myself, only just having my Ranger since February. But there is plenty of info on here already, and lots of helpful and experienced Ranger fans ready to help out if you need it.

Post some pics of the truck when you can, it sounds intriguing...

I plan on taking some pictures this weekend.
My daughter took the Monster emblem off the back window...I tried to talk her out of it because it looked really good with it, but its her truck and she wanted it removed.
Looking at the paint job in the day time...it was dark when we bought the truck...it doesnt look so good. But my daughter is happy with it, and i guess right now thats all that matters. I told her she could save some money and get a better paint job later.
I found someone on craigslist who is parting out their 83 ranger, so I should be able to get some of the interior stuff taken care of without spending a bunch of money. Thanks for all the replies.

Stef

Here's the picture of the truck I got for my daughter. Its not a very good picture, and I havent had a chance to take more. She has removed the Monster emblem off the back. A friend of hers is coming over this weekend to build a speaker box for her. I will take pics of that and post them later.

Have a good day.

Stef
