1997 Ranger XLT Extended Cab 4x4
My name's Eric, I'm 17 and live in Washington. I got a 97 Ranger for my first vehicle, 2wd, 5 speed manual, it was a fun truck but unfortunately back in October I rolled it in the ditch at 6 in the morning and ended up selling it and saving up for a new truck. A few weeks ago I found a 97 Ranger XLT extended cab with 261,000 miles on it, 4wd and 31" tires on it for $2,300 and bought it that night for $2,000. The engine was rebuilt and the owner had all the paperwork to show it, I can't remember how many miles it was rebuilt at. I've always been into dirt bikes and snowmobiling and other action sports but not the mechanics of it, I also didn't care much for cars or trucks as long as it got me where I needed until I got my first Ranger. My first one was bought for me but my second one I paid for myself so it's my baby and I really want to make it mine and learn how to do the work myself if I can. I already have a small list of what I'd like to do to this one I just need to do more research and save up some more first. I joined these forums hoping to get some second opinions, learn all I can about Rangers and drool over everyone else's projects.
