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

...i thought i would throw this in here...since i've gotten my project X alot of people don't know i have a ranger as my daily driver and it was the vehicle which brought me to this board...
...well, it is also an offroad truck but my project X has gotten to see all the trails since it is a little more extreme of a truck...
...that is, until this past weekend...i took it to the mountains and got to play in the snow...

....here is a link to the ranger's registry...

Did you mention what type of paint you used to paint the fenders? And what preparation was needed? I only saw the colors you used.

...froader pointed that chrome out to me when i first got it...he told me he hadn't seen another x with it and i've been looking and i haven't seen one either...:scratch:

...the tires did great in the thick snow but on the way up the hill i had my doubts...they did pretty good....:thumbsup:
