Default new ranger guy

hello, names norm. picked up an older ranger today. it's an 83 2 wheel drive. been wanting one for awhile. traded my 73 superbeetle for it. it's not a show truck but it's relatively clean. couple small dents in the front fenders but they add to the character a bit. always just thought rangers were fun to drive. easy to drive to. it's a 4 speed with buckets. i need to go grab some seat covers but other than that i think i'll run it as it sits right now. i had a 88 f150 for about 10 years. awesome truck with the straight 6 and 5 speed but wanted something a little smaller. think i'll be real happy in it. might have some questions for you all from time to time. bear with me. only thing that doesn't work right now is the sending unit. it's got one tank and it doesn't look very big. can anyone tell me roughly what my mpg should be and how big the tank is? i'll do the odometer thing till i get it fixed. just don't want to run out on the side of the road. i'll get a couple pics up when i get a minute. hope you all have a great 4th of july. fireworks and ford trucks. can't beat it.

Yep, there is a few members from the Oklahoma area on here. Below is a meet planning thread link, where you can find most of them. Hope that helps a bit.

well here she is in all her glory. lol. got her registered today and after getting a clogged fuel filter gremlin straightened out had a nice maiden voyage. all went well. needs a sending unit so i just filled the tank and will see how far it goes and go off the odometer till i get it fixed. it is so fun to drive a small truck again. it's just nice and easy. i like it. oh well, y'all have a great night and weekend. later.

thanks. i'd like to pick up a couple fenders for it. plan is to spray it olive drab green. i did a vw in it a few years ago and loved it. not big on waxing and it's real durable (cabela's oil based duck paint). my favorite thing is the bucket seats. don't know why i like them so much more than a bench but it just makes the inside, small as it is, seem real homey.
