Default SoCal Newb

I'm new to the forum and Ranger but not new to Fords as I've had my Mustang for about 6 years. I found a 1994 Ranger with a blown engine for cheap. It has the prerunner look, rides on 35" tires and has fiberglass fenders. I bought a complete engine for $400 and I'm in the process of cleaning and painting it. I also bought a bed cage and a front bumper that didn't fit so well. My goal is to have it ready for Glamis for Thanksgiving weekend. Thanks for taking the time to read

I took the accesories off the new engine, prepped for about 4 hours and sprayed it with 2000 degree paint, I hope it holds up. I'm doing the intake and the rest of the accesories and intake next week hopefully. Here's a sneek peek (the block is painted all the way to the heads now)
