Default New guy! with a DIY 87 ranger

Hey guys, my name Is tony and almost two years ago I bought my ranger from a friend for $200! =D Its a Black 1987 ranger 2.0 2wd. It has aftermarket ultra rims, a rear tube bumper, a bed cover, and it shows how old it is. The seats warn out, the dash is cracked, rubber floor is ripped, the carb is shot, leaks oil, but I love it all the more! Love to work on the thing but lacking a job at the point so kinda tight on the money. I want to do a 2 barrel carb swap on it along with drop it, 16inch rims, roll bar, lights, tint, and so much more. looking for ideas and inspiration!

check out my photo albums.....I had and 87 shortbed with roll bars and a hopped up 2.3
With a little work and know how, that motor will scream

I'm currently building an 85 4x4 with the 2.8

I'll give you some pointers when I get back to my place and off my phone...

Btw: welcome

I'm the resident 1st gen nut....best years ever

Post more pics!!!
