Default new truck

well for quite some time now ive been looking for another ranger 2wd to stuff this 5.0 in ive had siting around for a wile now... well about 2 weeks ago i came across the deal ive been looking for.. picked her up for 200.00. it had bad pinion bearings....

any way its a 88 ford ranger 2.0 carb 5 speed.. botttom of the line lol and i do mean bottom of the line no power stering are power brakes lol.. i installed new pinion bearings this weekend and checked every thing else in the rear.. and drove it around the block a bit to seat every thing in... it needs a lot of interior work and paint but body is good no rust i was suprised.. i plain on driveing it around for a wile as fuel saver as i build the v8.. then all the fun starts lol.

no the v8 is going in the 88.. here in nc we have emissions inspections here on 96 and newer vechiles... its just easer to put the v8 in a older truck.. less hassel with the dmv that way.. plus i have no need for a v8 in the red truck the 4.0 has pleny of power for what i use it for
