Default Hi from PA

Well here I am - - not sure how deep i'll go here, but a start is a start
I use pickups for scrapping metal. For the last 4 1/2 years Ive been using a Dodge ram 1500 with the 318 CI . That truck is for another Forum
The Ford Ranger I have is by luck !! it's a 1999 with 4.0 & a nice amount of rust in some areas . I spotted it and was told $150 and it's yours .
So I started it & knew this is a good one !! I figured i'll chance it , the seller said trans works. Considering scrap is at $190 a ton I could pull $400 out of it worst case scenario .
The day I purchased it , is the day I drove off into the sun set . The Ranger was not used much for a year & had that feel a auto gets when it just sits around . But it ran nice , heat worked perfect , the truck feels better now after 2 weeks . It's got a few bug A boo's that i'll address later .
I really like the truck the 4X4 works & I've already put 1000 pounds in it for a scrap yard run a few times & needless to say has paid for it self .
It needs fixing . My plan is not perfection but function with a respectable working man truck look . Still I really like this ford .
here are some of my past Ford experiences
1985 & 1987 Mustang GT 5.0
3 Aerostar's
Econoline Van
You Know what - forget it - I've had Many Ford's !!
to many to list . I like Ford there great auto's
