New to the site, have had a rangers since 1991.  First one 91 2.9 4x4 extended cab with the dreadful a4ld.  The truck was parked last year with 400K on the clock.  Still was running, though very weakly, with wore out transmission.  Pulled engine with intentions of installing 1967 mustang 289ci but was overwhelmed and the project went idle.  Just picked up a 99 3.0 flex 4x4 and have started to diagnosing the myriad of electrical gremlins, transmission issues, and probably a cracked head gasket.  Did I mention I know virtually nothing about electrics?  It has been a dose of bitter meds and the problems seem endless.  I'll peruse and post in the forums as I try to get this ranger back on the roads and in the woods where it belongs!

Welcome! Like stated above, there's quite a few guys on here who know their stuff and have some background in everyone's nightmare....wiring! Hopefully you can get everything figured out.

If you have any wiring question I’m pretty sure 410 or myself can help . The 91 if finished would of been badass as a build in its self for what it is . You say the ranger belongs in the woods 🤔 does the concrete jungle count lol I’m a city boy as they call me . Don’t mean I not familiar with some backs woods though 🍻
