Tbars Project "X" begins

First and foremost my ranger is my favorite truck...I will not let any of you fools try to talk me into changing my new project into some rock beast, lmao...this rig is just to go camping and fishing in and thats it...it took all the money i had to buy and the seller was great and is a new member here....thanks rick, the seller that is...

I have never as much sat in an explorer and today was the first time i opened a door on one...

It needs alot of tlc and a new 4.0 motor as the current one is seized...It needs a bit of paint work as the clear coat is shot and the front fenders are a different color....

Notes
1) Kbabiak, you need to make some pre-made shipping tags with my name on them as I will be needed a bunch of little parts...
2) Admin Rick, I sent my new membership dues in at 8am this morning as i was hoping to be a new X owner...
3)All elite members, I am going to need alot of help and parts for my new to me, 91 XLT

Whose Ex did you buy, can we know?:D I see a SOA, what does it have in front?

It could take Rick some time to do your elite upgrade. Patience. ;)

i'm not worried about the elite part...i just wanted to make sure i had my dues paid because i literally left with 3 dollars to my name and i wanted to be paid before pismo...as for the member whose truck this was...they only had 1 post on here and it was a for sale post, this truck...

btw, rangerx, i am really surprised you didn't pick up on the limiting straps on my new camping vehicle...

the previous owner also owns a bronco and is mainly on the bronco forums and the truck came out of lake elsinore and was driven daily to miramar until someone went 4wheeling in 4wd and forgot to lock their hubs...thats how i found it

Good luck there with the new toy. I've got some extra parts too, but you are a long way away there. Regards,

Too bad it's not a real Explorer. :(


































You can tell the fake ones because they lean to the wrong side. :p:
