Traded my '86 Bayou [My Profile Pic] for a '98 B. It's a plain as f truck, no options but a fancypants radio that doesn't belong to this truck. 5 speed M5OD-R1 trans, 2.5L Pinto engine with twin spark plugs, and a bunch of decals and stickers I'll probably be sanding off. Here's the photos I have at the moment.




Tell me what you all think! Very Happy

Lol, considering I also tinker with mowers aside from trucks I should xD maybe throw an MTD and a Craftsman sticker there.
The front bumper was the previous owner's attempt to create a bush truck. It's made of stolen stopsign posts. has a short [~10" tall] pre runner bar, and the thing is tough, I can stand on the tips and jump, they don't bend. I'll keep it.

I'm with you red, on the MTD note.. I don't watch much TV at all, in fact this is the latest thing I've posted on the forum. I'm always outside ripping around and working on stuff Razz

I'm considering doing a turbo setup on this thing after I get it clean and working properly. Has a bunch of DTCs and other silly small things to fix. I'll keep this 2.5 and do the turbo on it, but if I come across a 4bt cummins I might shoehorn it in here....

For now, it's just a matter of getting the cab corners done, fix the DTC causes, and get it on the road.

It almost looks like a stepside. kinda, not really. like its really trying but it cant. lol. 4bt would be awesome. but a turbo's 2.5 would be cool too.... decisions

I believe you mean 3.0L V6 Vulcan engine. Ford never made a 2.6 V6 in America. It was used in European cars, a 70's era Cologne engine, but never used in a ranger/b.

I plan to clean up this truck, put the stock muffler back on [remove thrush glasspack], and make a steel flatbed with rectangular holes on the sides for a wood fence type thing side pieces sorta thing. Might even maker a hydro lift. Be perfect for toting tractors around. I also want to put a mild cam in it and turbo it. Blow up the 2.5, get a 4.0 and cam the f outta it Very Happy

Yeah that's a rebadged ford ranger. It's got the Taurus 3.0 V6 in it. solid workhorse engine. Nutless though.
