That's a good lookin truck! You'll love the 2.3l, it's a great engine. For anyone saying it's slow as all get out, it's not really. It's still a 4 cylinder and still a truck, but it's got a little zip to it in the higher rpms. Welcome to F-R!

Thanks, not too concerned about speed or power, that's what my GTI is for :D. Mostly got it for winter use/daily driving to/from work and hauling stuff. It's a lot nicer now that it's detailed outside. Inside is my focus this weekend. Seats and door panels are trashed and the drivers side seat belt doesn't retract so I'm hitting the local salvage yards for replacements and upgrades hopefully.

Welcome...love your screen name.

I was just explaining to my wife the other day that I finally figured out why I was attracted to owning my old 93 Ranger.

After all, I've been tinkering on it non-stop since I bought it back in March of this year trying to get all the worn parts quirks out of it!

After a lot of thought it hit me and I explained it like this....

I said...these old Rangers are kinda like VW Bugs were back when I was in High School...they were friggin everywhere and parts were dirt cheap.  So back then they were a tinkerers dream!

Rangers now are like Bugs were then....they're are all over the craigslist ads and the junkyards are full of them.  Pretty much anything you need can be found dirt cheap.

Besides, its kind of addicting and fun treasure hunting, lol.

Thanks! Yea that's one of the things that attracted me to the Ranger is that, because of their popularity, parts are readily available and not too pricey.

Ron, welcome to F-R. I checked all over the internet & with LMC Truck & it seems no one makes a full floor piece for the Rangers just the patch panels.
