Default Mustang owner, picking up 4x4 Ranger for a DD Sat!

Hey Guys! found this forum on a different website, and it looks like a good comunity, so i joined!

I currently have a 2000 Mustang GT 5 speed
it's got all the bolt ons, lowered, CF cowl hood, Blower Cams, 3.73's, short throw shifter, and my favorite, a 2.1 Kenne bell Supercharger with intercooler.

here's a few pics





so this was my daily driver, for the past 3 years, and i've been looking for a Daily Driver for the past few months. i was going to go oldschool toyota pickup, but i came across this beauty and i'm going to pick it up this weekend!




it's a 1990 4x4 supercab auto 4.0 with a cast iron block, aluminum heads, a 9-1 compression ratio and 8.8-inch rear with ONLY 49,000 miles on it! it was in longterm storage for the past 13 years, and this 80 year old man made a decision to part with it. let me know what you think!

hey now i NEVER get this kind of luck! this was pure act of GOD! LOL
it's got a few things that need to be done, like a radiator flush, new hoses, probley do some injector cleaner cause it's been sitting for soooo long. it has alittle hail damage on the hood, but nothing big. the interrior looks like it just came off the showroom floor!
he wants $4,000 for it. it's in the bag!

i told myself that i would keep it stock, but i'm already looking for mod parts! haha the mod bug bit me aloooooooong time ago.
new tires and some wide rims are on the list. any suggestions for a lift kit? i don't want too extreme, but i definately want it to look like it's got some balls.
