Default What was old is new again

Obviously, I'm new to the forum, but not to Rangers. I had a 2002 Ranger FX4 that I bought in '04. I really liked it, but I traded it in for an F-150. A number of vehicles (and years later), my dad has passed away and left me his 1999 Ranger Sport, 4x2. (I forgot to mention that it's an extended cab.)

I need to fix a leak in the exhaust manifold. I was thinking of pulling an exhaust header off a truck in the U-pull it salvage yard, or replacing it with a new one. I would also like to put a hitch on it and tow a small trailer for a snowmobile, snow thrower, garden tractor, etc.

Does anyone have any suggestions for fixing the exhaust header or hitches that work best with the Ranger trucks?

Thanks,

Nice to meet you all.
