1. About you:

How old are you? 30
What is your job? Heating and cooling hopefully not for much longer (I have a 5 year plan)
Hobbies? Working on cars R/c airplanes drinking beers (not as much as I did at 21)
How long have you owned your truck? 4 days

2. About your truck:
1991 Extended cab ranger 2wd 4.0 5 speed i picked up mainly to replace my work car, paid 800 bucks for it and hopefully sell the one its replacing for the same price. So far I ordered a new sending unit removed the carpets to find a few holes and removed those STUPID plastic insulation bags from the rusted cab corner area making it rust. If you have an extended cab compact truck (my old frontier had them too) remove the insulation bags from behind the jump seats, moisture just sits under them. Also fixed the drivers seat since somehow the two bolts holding the back up were broken off, the last guy never heard of bolt extractors and gave up "after I broke 6 drill bits" took all of 15 mins and a bolt drawer search.

Theres going to be no mods other than fix some of the rust think the bed is gone, whats the cheapest place to get repair panels and parts? I got the ac working before removing the carpet by bypassing the low pressure cut out had to only have to add a little freon (I have guages) Also whats the deal with the steering on these? Mine seams to wonder around, is it the stupid duel I beam or just worn tie rods and or something else worn? And the parking brake doesnt work which is annoying.
What else should I take a second look at on this thing? I would like to fix the problem areas before putting the other car for sale since I dont want to drive my full size truck to work everyday (hope the ranger gets ok mpgs)
I dont have pics yet, hopefully soon

anyways Hi

Welcome to FRF!

That is quite a few questions to answer. Lol!

This forum is broken down into multiple sections. Exterior, interior, engine, suspension, wheels, tires, the list goes on and on. I would try posting each question in its right section, and you will get much more help with your questions!

Also, the search button on this forum is your best friend. The guys on here are amazing, and have covered just about everything you could ever imagine concerning a Ranger. Hope that helps a bit!
