Thumbs up The Rise of the BustedNRusted...

Sup all my fellow Ranger fans!!

I would like to say hello to everyone and introduce my new playtoy.

My name is Eric..im 26 and live in North Carolina..i joined for assistance in my new abortioned project truck in hope that i can bring justice to a neglected truck..

Bought this for 400 bucks..

Anything would be a improvement over this turd of a paintjob...I will work my magic on this and let you guys see my progress..

Ive never worked on a Ranger before..i come from the Ricer Community..so..

Currently needing repair:
Speedo Cable to Tranny-need help with this
Rear Yoke is Cracked, needs replacement-need ALOT of help for this..

This is my first real vehicle i have purchased for myself..coming out of a nasty marriage left me broke and begging for a new ride..i will make the best of this truck and hope you all will enjoy seeing the progress as i work on "her"..

"please keep laughing to a minimum..i didn't do this to the poor truck..."
and with no further ado..Project ZRTV "Zombie Response Team Vehicle"


1988 Ford Ranger
2.9L V6
4X4
5 Speed
Custom Taco Job!!

Before...












I forsee ALOT of BONDO and Flat Black Paint in this trucks future...

Someone might could photoshop it flat black for you to give you an idea of how it would look. I would do it, but I don't do photoshop. Lol! Let me see if I can find some black pics of this same truck real quick...

Okay, after a quick search, I found a couple pics of a black 88 ranger. The one in the pics is a single cab, but it will kinda give you an idea of what it could look like. Hope that helps a bit!

Thumbs up Re: The Rise of the BustedNRusted...

the fenders were heavily damaged by the owner, along with the hood and doors..lol..

The 88 Bronco II was identical from front bumper to doors..and he used a doner bronco II to replace those parts..

lol Ford Ranger/Bronco II interchange FTW!!

And thank you to those trying to find me the images so i can have a better idea of what this truck will look like after a pint or 2 of blood,sweat and tears get put into her..

any ideas on where i can find the Rear Yoke?

The Project would look nicer with a little bit of a lift..but in all honesty, i cannot see me going high with it because it wont go offroad often "being honest" and suspension modifications are expensive when u make 8 bucks a hour..lol


I think doing the bed with black rhinoliner would look nice though..im into the "Rat-Rod" styling cues when it comes to American Vehicles..no bodykit BS, no park bench for a wing..just simple,mean and clean.. :-)
