Default Just purchased '90 4x4

I recently purchased a 1990 Ranger 4x4 w/ 5-spd manual and V6 (pardon me, I don't have the exact size). Found it on craigslist in incredible shape for a great price.
I live in Orlando, FL and there are plenty off-road tracks around. I have every intention of adding some modifications such as flowmaster, wheels, grill, roll bar, interior work... I'm sure the list goes on.
The truck is in great shape, there is a noticeable whining sound coming from the passenger side of the vehicle when the wheels are moving. It doesn't come from the transmission or from under the hood and it only happens when the vehicle is in motion - any help would be greatly appreciated. (Maybe just some rust on the rotors?)
I'll post some pics - excited to join.

Welcome to FRF! In response to your "whinning" sound, be sure to jack up that side and shake the tire around a bit. If it wiggles top and bottom (IE: one hand placed on top, one on bottom trying to push one side and then the other), then you most likely have bad wheel bearings. Could be something else, but it never hurts to check!
