So there seem to be two major types of builds that get documented both here and elsewhere on the interwebs...abandoned left to rot complete ishtbox "WILL IT RUN?" low budget builds (here's to you David Tracy) AND the polar opposite frame up epic restoration (calling Barry Wolk and RVAE34).
Is there anybody interested in something more mundane? I've seen a few here, and they seem to generate positive feedback.
I had a 2000 Ford Ranger for many years and was thoroughly impressed with it's overall durability and value compared to a Tacoma of similar vintage. It took some work for sure, but nothing out of reach for a shadetree mechanic.
Which brings me to my current project of sorts; I recently picked up a decent 2011 Ford Ranger V6 XLT 4x4 to do truck stuff around the house. It's the second to last year they made 3rd gen Rangers. The previous owner purchased it from his employer's fleet. So it's been taken care of (sorta) and been well used (to say the least). I got it for a fair price, but it definitely needs some things. Ok, maybe a lot of little things. Some neglect related, some wear and tear, some preventative, and some because I'm a perfectionist with ADD, which means I'll build things about 80% of the way to perfect.
Lemme know; could be boring, could be good. Different for sure.
