Default jmonck from georgia

I live in North Georgia. I'm into outdoor stuff, guns, wordworking, and wondering how my truck hasn't died yet. She's a '94 2.3L 2wd manual w/ 217,000 miles as of today. And my wife is HOT!!!
I bought this truck in Florida for 900 bucks and had to replace the clutchy throwout thingy and an ignition coil to get it home. The transmission hates these mountains, or the 4cyl. eng., or both. And needs alot of coaxing to downshift into 3rd. In the 70,000 miles since I bought it, the alternator screamed bloody murder and failed, the idler pulley disintegrated, the other ignition coil failed, the radiator has sprung a leak(by the way, did you know you could drive a ranger on just a couple inches of antifreeze for god knows how long without overheating,), the thermostat stuck open, and the fuel pump developed a sense of humor. I don't think it's had plugs or wires replaced in about 100,000 miles(random glove box receipt), and the a/c clutch burned out who knows how long ago. And every once in a while I find a vacuum hose has dry rotted and come lose. I replace them when I can't cut anymore length off. I love this truck! It suits me just fine, it's a poor workin mans truck. A V6 would be nice, and 4x4 too. Which brings me to my next ranger purchase. A $500 backyard bargain... I'll talk if ya wanna listen.
