Default Noobie from Cleveland Ohio

Picked up a wrecked '00 Ranger yesterday at auction as a little runabout for the shop/ family.

Decent 3.0L, auto, 4WD, 4D supercab truck. Low on options but only 78k miles. I'm surprised by how crusty it is though. Needs rockers and bottoms of all 4 doors fixed, plus a paint job on top of the wreck repair. The frame is pretty crusty in the back. It was undercoated at some point and as spots in the undercoat crack the salt packed in and ate the metal. Oh well, for what I paid it's fine.

Need a spindle to get it rolling around (busted off the tie rod ear). Anyone do a lift and have your old pass side spindle you want to sell?

Thanks for the welcomes!

Bigger pics posted.

Man the thing is crusty underneath. Dad and I need to replace part of the front cross member where the front of the lower control arm bolts. There's nothing left of the underneath of the cross member and where the arms bolt through. Plus rockers. ANyone know a good place for replacement rockers?

Oy, So I was poking at the rust on the oil pan and now it has started leaking. Looks like I need a new oil pan now. Looking at it it looks like it should easily drop out, but I have read several post of people saying you have to pull the motor; those all seemed to be 2WD. One person did suggest just dropping the front diff for a 4WD and it would be pretty easy. That would be pretty easy since the front suspension is out of it now.
