So this actually started about a week ago, so I will start from the beginning!!

So I am picking up a 1992 Ranger STX 4wd 4.0 next week! It has only 114k miles and in very good condition other than the paint on the hood and roof. Picking it up for $700 and at least half of that will be trade out work!

My plan is to build a nice exploration/motorcycle carrier truck! I want to do a small lift, some 31” tires on newer style Ranger rims, build a tube bumper with winch and a chase rack with a fold out sleeping platform!

Here is a pic of the Ranger, it has been sitting for about a year and a half!

I picked up my ranger today! Before I got there I picked up a set of new 235/75/15 tires on some black Jeep wheels. The old tires were shot!
After putting new gas in it and a battery it fired right up! Can’t wait to get working on it this week.

Got a few things done on it today. Replaced all the wheel bearings with National bearing, replaced the brakes, replaced power steering pump and both lines. I also did the cheap washer lift until I can afford a 4” lift kit. Need to pick some alignment bushing up tomorrow.
