Hey all. I have a 96 Ford Ranger 4x4 STX with the 4.0L. This is now my second ranger; I used to have a 96 reg. cab long bed 2x4 with the 2.3L.

This is my current truck. It is completely stock for now, but I have a Explorer OHC that I got for $10 in the tool box waiting to be installed. I will eventually get my CB installed with dual whips, coil spacers for the front, explorer leafs for the rear, and I am going to paint the flares, body moldings and front bumper/ valance black and the grille white.

It is in pretty good condition for its age. The only rust is on the tailgate and starting to show up under the front lip of the the hood. At least that is what I originally thought untill I pulled the plastic bed liner and there was a couple holes in the front of the bed.

red_fx2: I go to school at Ferris State in Big Rapids, but my actual home is in Martin, pretty much right in the middle between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo.

Cool, I have been wheeling on some of the seasonal roads around the Big Rapids area/ Manistee forest.

welcome man.

Truck looks awesome! THe only suggestions i have, and i think many will agree with me, that will REALLY freshen up the look of your truck is to:

Remove the pinstripe. Then tape up everything REALLY good OR remove the all the plastic trim pieces (bumper Trim, valance, back bumper cap, etc...) and paint them black with krylon fusion. its a cheap mod, but ill tell you what, it'll really make that truck look good!

Actually, that is pretty much my exact plan. Remove strips; take off flares, body moldings, bumper/ bumper valance and paint them black. I can't decide if I want to paint the grille white or black. I wish I was somewhat decent with photoshop so I could get a good visual. I may even paint the toolbox black too, but I don't know if I can make myself paint a 2 month old toolbox.
