hey, my names Luke (please no star wars puns lol),
i got a my 2000 ford ranger about 5 years ago, and put 100,000 miles on it... it was rather reliable, it had no issues up untill exactly 140,000 miles lol.
anyway, i live in Connecticut, and my truck is a 4.0 v6 Xlt super cab. i got alot of little mods on it that make life/work easier, such as the backrack i custome made on it. some Bushwacker bed rail covers. I put a 3 inch body lift in it for looks, and some larger sized street tires on it (about 32's i wana say). Also i put a pretty sweet balanced (but basey) sound system in it, with:
2x 12 inch Hifonics Titan woofers.
4x 6x8 Zeus door speakers
clarion head unit
and a 600 watt powerbase amplifier (which pumps out alot of base surprisingly)
Its got its issues, but whata u expect, its got about 170000 miles on it and is still my first and only vehicle.
heres a few pictures.
this is a lil bit older picture... i have a new toolbox, and i took off the rear stick on window vents.
A little bit newer picture, still has those rear window vents :) but also the new tool box.
my interior... but the armrest broke that winter :(
