Default new to the Ranger family

Hi everyone, I just joined the forum. I live in Quebec, Canada and I'm a 25. I'm a apprentice mechanic working at a Hyundai dealer ship. Joined this forum because I will need some knowledge and wisdom to get my truck back to great working order.

Now for my new to me Ranger... Its a 1997, splash trim, manual, 4 cyl and red. Just bought a few days ago for cheap. Body looks in great shape for its age and the Canadian climate! But there are some spots of rust that I will get to patching up. I'll post some pics tomorrow, its been raining all day. Engine seems to be running pretty good and the clutch feels nice. The under body frame is rusted, as I expected for its age. So far from the few days of driving, I will be replacing the exhaust, its completely shot. The gas tank straps need to be replaced, one is completely gone... The airbag light is on, seems to be bxxx resistance high driver airbag. The abs light is on but I can't communicate with the system, but I don't like abs anyway lol.

So I will be looking through the threads for help and ideas for future mods!
