Default New (Sort of) from Missouri

Hi, I'm new to this forum, but not to Ford Rangers. I joined because I just picked up a '97 2WD, 2.3, 5 speed. Rough, but it will fill the need for better gas mileage. This is my second Ranger, I had a '86 with a 2.9 and 5 speed years ago.

The '97 needs a grille and a panel for the back window, and it's a little on the rough side. I have a '01 Dakota Quad Cab, 4WD, with the 4.7 and I needed another truck for the smaller tasks that different hurt as much in the wallet at the gas station. A picture the "new" Ranger is below.

I might address the roughness part eventually, but probably not yet.

Thanks, guys.

And, btw, I will definitely the the rims washed when I wash the rest of the truck. But it will see it's share of work. I have some plans for it, but nothing too ambitious. At the most, maybe some minor body work and some paint.
