Default My first ranger and some other pics.

This ranger was the first vehicle ive owned, after it was replaced it was put into storage at my dads shop where its been ever since, about 8 years or so. thought id snap a couple pics of her.
86 4x4, 2.9L auto





a couple of my dads trucks. the green one is a 76 F-250 with the 390 big block. it served as his plow rig for about 25 years. the brown one is a 78 with the 351, its 2wd but he bought this as a doner truck to rebuild the body of the 76.



and heres the wrecker he built. it used to just have an a frame sling boom but he extended the bed, built a wheel lift and hydrolic sling boom. this truck has towed my old 86 ranger a few times. lol

it was either that or the junkyard. we have a body doner truck for it behind the shop. someday when i have the funds it will get a frame up with some sort of V8 drivetrain and a solid axle.

the floorboards are rotted away, you can put your foot through the floor. the doors and bed are rusted badly, core support is gone, trans is shot, transfer case needs work and the ECM is bad. motor is tight though. 200,000 miles and 24 years of michigan winters have really taken its toll on the old girl.
