Default My new project truck: 95 Ranger

Picked upa 95 Ranger today for 600bucks

3.0 Automatic 2wd ~120k miles

Got it towed to work to get a full inspection

Currently needs 2 brake lines to start with.





Needs a GOOOD cleaning inside and out, but need to get it on the road first.

also have some spare parts from other rides, cd player/sub/amp explorer full console. Need to start raiding my garage for parts


Plan is to lower it, about 3/4 to start, put it on 17s and drive the crap out of it as a daily

Very nice. Any plan to convert to disc brakes? Disc brakes would compliment the openness of those wheels well IMHO.
