Default New to the farm, but not new to the truck

Hello all. New to the forum but not new to Ford Rangers. I've been around them for most of my life, from the full-size Ranger of the 70s, to my dads 2wd single cab four-cylinder of the early 90s, to a 4.0 4 x 4 extended cab from 2002. Those are all gone and now I drive a 95 2wd XLT extra cab with over 250,000 miles on it. The odometer stopped at 248,000, and I have an ABS light, may be related? Anyhow, I picked it up for $600, I stole it. I'm very happy with the truck and plan on doing twin spark mod after I get it smogged. I have some sort of exhaust leak upfront so I have to address that before smog. Other than that, just plan on some new plugs and new tires. Maybe some fresh fluids in the tranny and a coolant flush. I will do my best to research this truck on the form, but any advice is appreciated.



----------

I may also try to do a modern front and conversion as well.

I did mine for about $180.00. I bought the grille & header panel off E Bay, bought the head lights & corner lights locally from a member here, & bought the head light retainer clips from Ford. Check this link for the parts minus the retainer clips. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Grille-Turn-...9b5a63&vxp=mtr
