    so, today I got 2 rangers for free.(and a s-10) I think one is a 83 or 84 and one is a 87 or 88. I'll say 84 and 88 just for simplicity. the 84 is blue (well, not anymore b/c of rust) and is a parts truck. beautiful interior and engine and tranny are good. was wondering if i could put the interior in the 88 without having to do any welding??? all the 88 needs is brakes (the originals are seized) and a battery (and the good interior because this one is crap. Mother nature and the original owner were not kind to this truck) also has new (like new anyways, but not original) engine and a repo tranny. 84 has 1 wheel and tire and is somewhat buried in the field it is in.

    well dean, all I know is it needs the alternator, serpentine belt, a battery, and wheels and tires. he says with a battery and some ether it should start up. I actually haven't even had the time to pick any of them up yet so I have genuinely no Idea. the s10 is all original though. white, extended cab, red interior (gross color but in great shape) melted steering wheel because of sitting in a field for 5ish years, original wheels and tires but the tires definitely need to be replaced. I'm gonna sell the wheels and just buy some new wheels and tires because I don't really like the originals with the ugly-ass hubcaps with the bowtie (that's what makes them ugly (I'm a mopar guy but i'll take what I can get))
