Default I just got my Ranger for $150...(no really)

I am now a proud owner of a 1996 Ranger. I am 25 and I am a jet engine mechanic for the US Navy active duty. I have only had the truck for about 2 hours so far but it needs a little bit of work to become road worthy (tires are dry rotted and it needs a new battery and some other small things).

Its a 1996 Ford Ranger regular cab short bed 4x2 2.3L 5spd. 128k
I dont know if it is sport or any trim info...

No mods done, not sure if i will...

Default Re: I just got my Ranger for $150...(no really)

Thanks for the warm welcome! I will try to post a picture tonight if I can. Here is the quick version of how I got it so cheap: A friend at old command bought it and was transfering. He sold it to another guy for $150 because the other guy wanted the practically new tires. I have been trying to get this truck from him for over a year now. I called him the other day to see if he was finally willing to part...he said yes! He told me he could get $150 from a junk yard so I asked if I could pay him for it....and well I bought it for $150 cash after I got off work. And yes, I am going to get rid of the faded pink flames!

Glad to have ya aboard!

I'm a Veteran (USAF) myself & APPRECIATE your pickin up where I left off, so to speak.

NICE FIND! I do miss those kinda deals fallin in my lap when I was in.....guys gettin PCS'd sometimes don't have alotta time to get rid of stuff & can't take it with em..........so they sell it cheap. Some of my past builds were comprised of deals like that!
