Default Howdy! New to this forum

My name is Randy, I'm going to be 51 this month. Purchased my "new" Ranger in Sept '09. It is a black w/red interior, '83 XL, 2wd with 2.3, 4 speed. Already had older aluminum bed rails. Plain jane stock w/107,000miles, now 114,000. I am third owner. Last owner titled it in '86. I have purchased factory aluminum wheels from salvage yard at $13.00 each so I got five of them. NOW I need better looking center caps. Want to upgrade the sound system too but do not want to cut out the dash cover. Have been given a 5 speed trans and wonder if it will be a big deal to swap it out. Have also just started having charging/cranking difficulties with it. I have wanted a small truck for quite some time. I was looking for a long bed, 4cyl, standard trans and just happened to find this one on the back lot of a Dodge/Chrysler dealer. Key was in it and it started right up. He wanted $3500 for it, yeah right!!!! Got it for $1,000. I LOVE this little truck but can see why some would want an extended cab, I have plenty of leg room, just that covered storage is non existent, and I wanted the bed length to be able to haul my motorcycle/cycles if need be.
