Question new from baltmore

hey im new here. first time joining a forum. hoping to meat some new people and talk to people bout my truck. alot i wana do to it but on a low budgit or just might take a long time to do. my trucks all stock. got a 94 ford ranger xl 2.3l 4 banger 5 speed. no power stearing, no radio, manual windows and locks. its a 2x4. was givin to me by my grandfather so was not abused. but also not in the best condition. starting to get rust in the body fame and under the hood. it has 117400 miles on it. still runs good. i plan on dripping it eventually, adding a radio and speakers, new grill, headlights and taillights. would like to do some engine work but i think ima just have to replace or rebuild it soon. im not sure how these forums work but im trying to figure it out. so if any one would like to give pointers they would be greatly Appreciated. thanks

if i was you i wouldnt rebuild the motor i would focus more on the frame rusting its hard to stop but easier if you get to it asap. but the 2.3 motors are bullet proof i had one that had 256000 and it still ran good and the one i have now has 118000 and it still runs really good.
