The owner lives in rural Maine, as the pictures of the Ranger and his lack of cell phone coverage attest, but the truck is totally eighties!
The guy doesn't give much information, but you can see a 2.9 in the picture as well as a chrome "roll bar" and graphics job that will bring back...
Does anyone else want to see a 2.9 vs. 3.0 challenge? After all the trash talk between the two I really want to see which is better at what.
My first thought went straight to "tug-o-war" but I really don't want to see anyone's rig damaged in the process and whichever has the best grip is...
Sibling rivalries are forever.
Can a 2wd Ranger with a rear locker keep up with a Subaru Outback?
I checked the dimensions and the Ranger matches or beats the Subie in approach, break over, and departure angles.
It's the traction. Will a locker give it enough to go on trails you'd feel...
I wasn't sure if it was ok to post this or where, so I decided to play it safe. When i saw the video, though, I knew someone here would be interested. (Unfortunately he doesn't give a price.)
Highlights from the video:
It's an auction purchase bought by a recycling center for resale.
My passenger side power window is stuck in the up/closed position. I bought the replacement parts but don't know how to lower the window to get at the rivets holding the glass to the arm.
Every day I drift over to Barn Finds to see if they have anything interesting. (Usually 50's to 70's trucks) Today they have a 1990 Ford Ranger listed. What caught my eye was that it has just 28,000-ish miles on it.
Thought you guys might be interested...
Was it worth it? Did you do it as a hobby, because you have the skills, or did you have the work done?
How much did it cost?
How long do you plan to keep your Ranger now that you've converted it? A few years? Ten? Until it rusts away?
I'm going through the "Should I spend 10K to convert or...
How well do the redesigned ones hold up?
I have a 2011 with roughly 82K miles and am starting to worry about the wear the have. (Every time I change the oil I can hear a light rattle for a day or two.)
I'm not a diy-er so it would go to the shop.
What's the average lifetime of the redesigned...
Been lurking around for a bit and decided to make it official.
My 2011 Sport surprised me with how well it can haul.
It only has around 80K on it and I'm looking forward to seeing many more years on it to come.
