You did not specify the year. If it is an 86-88, be aware that the 2.9L v6
for those years has a bad habit of cracking cylinder heads.

Subject: FTE Small - RE: Wanted: Inexpensive Cap For A Ranger

William,

If you truck is along bed, I have a cap (topper) that has full length slider
windows on the sides and a pass through in the front. It is aluminum, and almost
exactly matches Ford's Wild Strawberry color (red). Been trying to sell it for a
while.

Let me know if your truck is a long bed. I paid about $500 to have it custom
made, but will sell it for whatever I can get. I'm thinking maybe $100.
