Default PicknPulled Ranger

hey. Couple months ago i got really lucky and bought this ranger from the picknpull where i work so i can garage my Firebird for the winter and throw a v8 in it as well. This truck had 67k miles when i bought it. It's a 2.3 5 speed. Picked it up for only 1100. I only had to change the oxygen sensor to pass smog.
This truck is very clean. just needs needs new carpet which is on its way. Im throwing on some chrome projector headlights and a billet grill. Those are coming soon as well.
I plan on doing the turn signal mod if i can just understand it. Upgrade tailights to an 2001 which i already got from Rocklin PicknPull.
I may chip this beast as well.
I'm mainly posting this in hopes i will get rid of the big notice on every page that says i haven't posted yet.

Nice find man! Have you seen any other cayman green rangers at that yard? I'm in need of a hood.

I might throw in a modest finder's fee too...

Very nice man! Digging the later model wheels on it.

FYI on that tails, you will either have to dremel out a 3rd hole or splice some wires to convert to a 2-bulb set-up as yours is currently a 3-bulb set-up and in 00 they went to 2-bulb.

Oh I am a jealous. I originally wanted a firebird when I was out car shopping. But got my nice little ranger for now. Firebird will be my next car I get.
