Thanks all, yea I've been looking for a long time. Just hard to get enough money ahead to get something other than a "real" fixer upper...lol. This one came along at just the right time, for the right price so I grabbed it. :D

Really good friend of mine that owns a big shop says the perfect ranger 93-12 is a manual
2wd 3.0 5 speed ranger.  Doesn't have 4wd problems, auto tranny failure, or 4.0l timing issues...
Your choice regular cab vs extended....

Just his opinion.
