My old ride, 01 s10 blazer :

thanks for the welcomes! I live down in Newnan(coweta county) right next to palmetto. Ya I've been looking alot of stuff on the forum and im getting a good basic idea of what to do to it, and any issues with this year ranger if there are any. I figured there'd be some since i think 85's the first year they did EFI instead of carbed in the ranger. Are there any things i need to watch out for? oh i forgot to do the description stuff.

I'm 19 years old, and I'm going to college taking welding, and EMT. I'm a member of the explorer program, which is run by the fire department for early pre-training in a sense. my hobbies would mainly be offroad based such as dirtbikes and go karts, and i really like learning about cars and rebuilding/customizing them.

The truck I've had for abouta month, I got tired of fuel emissions problems with it and decided i needed a change. I know its a ranger XLT single cab extended bed 2wd, with a EFI 2.3l, and an auto an auto transmission. my plans for it are a new paint job, probably all white, might slap a windshield visor w/ lights on it. I plan on painting the dash (sorry but the whole red interior isn't my thing at all), also some truk bed liner on it for hauling, and I have an old set of Cragar S/S wheels id like to put on it, maybe give it a drag look. After i get a bigger truck or a 4x4 play toy car i'd like to either turbo/supercharge it, or put a 302 and tear up some hondas for kicks :P (might go crazy and put a cummins in it)
