Finally back in a Ranger after a little over two years. Some people might remember my 1999 DWB Extended cab that was wrecked in May of 2012.
After the wreck I got a 2007 Dodge Caliber R/T, that I still have. It was just time to get back in another truck, and as soon as this one came up for sale it had to be mine. It is a little rough around the edges and only had about 6000 miles put on it since 2009, but the price was right for a local, 1 owner, with 116k on it.
It's a 4X4 2001 XLT with a 4.10 ls rear and 4.0 v6 with a manual trans. Manual windows, locks and mirrors. Grey Interior and Oxford White paint. Basically exactly what I had been wanting since I got my licence! Only got a couple pictures of it. I've been nonstop between work and cars lately.
It has a couple rough places but the worst was the tailgate and the trailer hitch. I can't stand the look of rust. So I hit the hitch and top of the tailgate with some bedliner. The tailgate is just a temp fix. Probably will be replacing it with a 2006+ tailgate soon.
Next step is to pull the bed and Por15 the frame and put my explorer leaf packs that have been sitting in the basement for 2 years to good use. Might do shocks while I'm there too. The 14 year old suspension seems a little tired.
