sold!  Headed to Colorado. 
 

$5000.  This ranger was built for SCCA rallycross specifically but can be used for all kinds of off road (or on road) fun. It’s got a 5.0 v8 from a 95 mustang GT and runs a carburetor.  It’s got front I-beams that have been extended 3” on each side by a prerunner builder out in Cali and has fiberglass front fenders to cover the added width. 

The bed has been flared to cover the 8.8 limited slip rear axle swapped in from an Explorer. It’s got a Sparco race seat and the transmission was fully rebuilt 2 years ago with receipts. 

I’m only selling it to get a SXS. It’s incredibly fun off road. It has torque through the roof to spin the wheels at a touch of the throttle. Looking for $5k.

The progression of this truck's build can be found here:

What's the year and I assume it has title/plates/etc? Any chance of bolting a tow hitch back onto it?

I love this thing!

It's a 93. Engine/trans are from 95 mustang. I have clean title and it's plated in FL. The rear bumper is gone but rear frame is completely intact. I assume a trailer hitch that bolts to the frame would be no problem.

Truck  is in Fla still?

Please don't say it's "plated"in Fla-but located in California-my willpower is weak!

Thank God!

My wallet already had a mail order impulse buy "episode" for this week when a Federal judge declared Ca ammo background checks unconstitutional yesterday.

Not that I needed any more. Well yes, I did.

Not that the transport of the truck from Fla to Ca should be that bad.

Ohh-cheap flights now and drive it back!

No,No must resist...would have to deal with Ca smog too.

Truck is a great deal and someone needs to jump on this!

If you get desperate I've got $2500 and a tendency to make irrational decisions....

But seriously, please don't do this to me.

Yes, he runs the Baja beetle and now the Corolla that was made famous by the Vallela brothers at the $2000 Challenge.
