My name is Greg and I am the proud owner of my 5th Ford Ranger over the years. Some old some new and all sold for different reasons. I always seem to come back to Rangers and here I am again. I currently live in Lafayette, La and will be finishing graduate school in just a few months.
I picked up a really nice 2004 Ranger base with 73,000 miles on it and I have come to Ranger Forums to learn how I can make it a little less "Base". I have been really surprized by the power and highway capabilities that this 4cyl 5 speed has compared to my last Ranger (1991). My intended mods are:
1 Swap factory AM/FM radio for a factory CD/Cassette... Yes Cassette
2 Pull the vinyl seat and put in a cloth seat out of a 04' Edge
3 Modify the over the rail bed liner so I can mount a bed cover.
4. Aftermarket cruise (its not already wired. Thanks Ranger forums for showing me how to tell)
Aside those main ideas I may add aluminum wheels for looks and a small graphic to break up the ugly white color. Of course it was a smokers truck before so when I change the seat I am going to make a weekend out of removing most of the interior for a good cleaning. Thank god for rubber floors.
The whole idea is a reliable, gas friendly truck with a few creature comforts.
