If you can find one, get an 83 Ford Ranger 4x4. They had a straight front axle instead of TTB. I believe it was a Dana 35 axle.

All rangers are good rangers learing about what you buy is what matters. The all have their falts. And besides what do you need in a truck is what matters most. The last year that they used carbs I think was in 1984. I had a 85 and she was fuel injected but could easly be converted tocarb.
