Local junk yard got a ranger bead. . Would it be bolt on?
If its bolt on it would be less Job than the rust. ..
They want $350 for it with a broken tail light

Why not just build this truck, instead of swapping in the engine, bed, and axles. It's newer and looks in better shape than the Mazda...

Simple.. the Ranger is from sweeden, and i live in norway.. that meens shitloades of taxes (Norway is the nr 1 in the world on taxes) to just let the gowerment know the truck is on this side of the border:D

and the frame on the ranger is rusted to pieces.. i'm afraid if i flex the truck it will brake.. hahaha


i might put the super duty axles under it.. if i can strengthen the frame easy
