Well I got the fuel pump/gauge changed and the exhaust changed. Plugged in the abs and drove it, looks like a bad wheel sensor on the LF. Took it on a short road trip this evening Up to pittsburgh...ran great no problems. Picked up a tailgate that will need bodywork but not rusted like the one on there...

It will be up for sale in a week or 2. I just have to get the brakes fixed and the tailgate replaced and clean it all up.

My source..

You know Ford calls the names different on different models even though it's the same paint code... There's a color on 07-09 Mustangs called "Valencia", yet on the Ranger it's called something different. Same color code. Different name. You also should know that just because a brochure says a color isn't available, doesn't mean it wasn't offered. There's '03 Rangers sprayed with DWB.....but it ain't listed in the brochure...

The truck in question sure looks a little more orange than red in the shots from the ad....could be the pic quality, but it looks off of toreador...

Well I found 2 unrelated issues. The ABS light was caused by a bad sensor on the LF. I put a used one on but it didn't fix it so I bought a new one but it hasn't got here yet. The right rear brake was grabbing and squealing. I found the automatic adjuster cable had been replaced with a piece of tie wire and a the shoes were glazed. I started working on the replacement tailgate for it monday but haven't made it back to the garage yet...lol

Well I finally got a chance to work on the truck a little. Between the snow, my sister being in the hospital and a death my time has been occupied. Anyway I got the tailgate fixed up and painted and took a few pics...

Yeah, just the tailgate. That color paint is 80.00 a pint for the good stuff and they didn't have a mix in the cheaper brand. I had him shoot it with his gun and came up with a mix in the cheap paint...31 a pint, its actually 2002 kia cinnamon red...lol
