Default Finally decided to stop lurking...

I registered awhile back to look around and get some knowledge, but have never posted until today.

Anyway, I have a 1996 Ranger with a 4.0 and auto transmission, fully power equipped (minus the mirrors which aren't wired up right for the moment) that I got around two years ago. When I first got it I shared it with my step-brother since we didn't have the money to get two vehicles at the time, but soon after he moved to San Antonio with his mom I got t-boned going to the local Walmart. After that, it sat for around a year before the uncle of the girlfriend at the time helped me to bring her back to life.


This is the damage done to the rocker. I don't have a picture of what the door looked like, but it was pretty mangled.


This is what it looked like after the door sat open for close to a year. I regret not keeping it under a tarp or anything, but in my ignorance I thought that I'd never drive it again.


The front end with a year of dirt and rain dulling up the front end.

And now to the pictures I took last year (since I've been to busy with work and school to snap any pictures):


What she looked like when I got her back on the road, with the chrome fender flares which have since been removed, and the primered rocker.










This is the gap in between the door and the cab on the back lip of the door. It's still got some damage that won't get fixed with my limited skills, but at least it's whole again.

Actually, yes. As sad as it is, the other day me and a buddy went and changed the spark plugs and in a cranny in the engine bay there was still some leaves and pine needles stuck there, two years after she got back on the road!
