Arrow Son's 95 Ranger XLT salvage rebuild project

My Son decided he wanted to do another V8 Ranger, so he took this one off my hands, as I picked up another 94 that I have listed as my RAT Ranger project:

I had picked up this salvage titled 95 Ranger XLT that somebody had used as a parts truck, they used the bed & rearend.

Haven't decided if I'm gonna attempt to pull the radiator support, or just replace it............





Opted for NEW radiator support>>>



Used box:



NEW motor longblocked 6-10-09:



Just got it back from frame shop Wed, but no pics yet, they put in the NEW radiator support, RF fender, & replacement hood after tweekin the frame a lil' as it was off ahead of the front crossmember just 1/2".........

Probably be replacing tires quite a bit. Lots of work going into it, my datsun looked like that after the first accident.

===================================
That truck is for sale as a roller, needs work/finished.

My Son has laid claim to my black 94, since I found a 99 right, and I've done alotta work to the 99, but have since put it on the back-burner so I could get my green 94 Pro Streeted, and ready for the Ranger-Forums Meet in K-town next month.

Whata ya think:

When you said K-town, you're not too far from Millington? The 94' definitely has class, got to be a hell of a lot of fun to drive.
