93' Eddie Bauer 4dr
Before moving to Arizona, I purchased a seriously used and abused 93' Eddie Bauer edition 4door. It's from Nebraska and FULL of rust, tranny slipping and needs a paint-job BAD! The price was right and it made it here, yay!

Now what? Funds are tight as I just started a new job.

Tranny slipping like crazy, using that Tans-X fluid but not helping much.

Have to make this vehicle dependable not only for work but, I like to go deep in the desert for hiking trips with friends and... it's a long way back to civilization some times! lol

Eventually, it will need a lift-kit, tires and a serious "desert tan/camo" paint job that can take heavy abuse and not scratch easily.

Any thoughts?

Thanx, Ace

be easy on the tranny till u can get it fixed. as for paint thats tough, you could always rhino line the whole truck (another member here has it done and looks good) and either leave it black or do tan camo over rattle can over the rhino liner. should be rugged enough to not scratch. just a thought?

31"s should fit under it stock. If not you can lift it 1.5" to 2" with f150 coil seats or spacers(i cant remember, if you search you should find it), and lift shackles(warrior 153).

But fix that trans first.
