Default New to Ford trucks 4x4 project

Hello all,

So my name is Sport rally5 since my first Love was a Toyota SR5 that now needs an engine after 384,000 miles of service. While waiting for one on the slow boat from Japan I picked up a 1989 Ford Ranger 4x4 that was used pretty much for joy riding though the California hills and mud. It was my cheap truck challenge and finally it is road safe after a trip to pick n pull for mirrors and misc knobs and seats and lights. I was going to sell it once I got my Taco running again but I really like the simplicity of this truck! The 2.9l V6 gets me to work every day and the straight pipe exhaust makes a mean sound my Toyota canít match

Have a lot of work yet to do so canít wait to hear your stories and advice!
