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

...the problem i think was, the inner bearing actually wore out the part between the inner/outer bearings in the rotor until it was gone, and the rotor actually became free floating on the way to truckhaven...:eek:

...the hitch is great...now if the tranny could match the hitch, lol...

...it is nice to have one drop hitch and be able to use different trailers but also adjust your height when it's loaded or empty...:thumbsup:
