Default New guy from NW ohio

Hey everyone. Jake here from northwest Ohio. Im 23 and currently make dishwashers for a living. Exciting...

I'm familiar with forums, I am a very well known member (probably a bad thing lol) on Powerstroke.org. I'm also the president of a chapter of that forum called Buckeye Power Strokes. My screen name is Jake over there too.

I've got a 1989 Ranger, 2wd, 2.3L, 5 Speed manual, base model. I've done a few little things to it. I painted the grille, headlight bezels, front and rear bumper, and rims gloss black. Looks way better than the faded gray they were. Tinted the tail lights, installed a radio system (base model, no radio from the factory), clarion CD/MP3 player, 2 cerwin vega speakers in the doors (was stuff i already had laying around the house) and an auto zone antenna. I also put seats from an 04 (or close to it) ranger. Its a split bench with a center console. Also have the shift boot from a 96ish truck, the one with cup holders. Also i put 20% tint all around. I bought it to get good gas mileage and to keep my nicer truck clean going to and from work. I only paid $350 for this little guy too.

When i first got it in march.




And now. I still need to get a pic of my interior. It looks good with the new seats.




Here is just a shot of my other truck...

Thanks for the welcomes.

Any of you got any ideas on easy cheap ways to increase fuel economy/power? Turbo charging (which i've done quite a bit of research on) is not in the options. I want reliability too haha. And its too expensive for my budget.
