Against my better judgement, I drove down there and bought it. This thing is a rustbucket.
This is gonna be a long build...

If I would've seen this thread earlier, I could've looked at it. It's about an hour from where I live.

That's alright. It was a good road trip anyways. I'm not sure I would've made the drive if I saw how it looked ahead of time.
It'll take some time and money, but I'll have her better than new again.

My credo
Lead, Follow or get out of my way
Oh the joys of the salt belt...

If I ever build another Ranger... I'm gonna have to go south to buy one to start with. I've dealt with the rust thing my entire life... and it's becoming apparent on my 06.

It's so brutal. Ohio seems to be a mixed bag though. I've seen some super clean examples, and some swiss cheese trucks.
I'm hoping to find one down south with a blown motor.
