A customer was parked in the lot... 2000 ranger! Looked a little different so I talked to him. Was a 2000 trail head had the 2WD grill but the bumper with fog lights and torsion bar front. 

No rust, barn find. Had the rubber floor, stick shift. 

Would have been awkward taking pics so I didn't. 

He mentioned not knowing what the rear end was....

I looked at the door tag (which was UPSIDE DOWN numbers pointed toward inside) and told him he had a 4.10 8.8 open.

I have never seen a backwards door tag has anyone else?

Trailhead was an early version of the Ranger edge. I believe 2000 was the only year for that model

I didn't look to see if it had the frame bracket for the front differential. Missed that opportunity.

Only virtually.

We are all kind of in the same room when we are here.

The backwards door tag could indicate a repaint.
