Hey everyone, i'm new. My name is Mark and I am currently living in Orlando, FL near UCF. I've lived in Daytona Beach, FL my entire life before I moved here for school.
I just purchased a Ranger a couple months back to use as a daily for when it rains. It's a '98 regular cab, 3.0, 5-speed, 4x4 with 230k miles... Supposably the previous owner replaced the engine, transmission, and clutch about 40k miles back. I'm not sure about that, but I picked up the truck for $1,900. Runs good, the body is straight and there is only minimal rust which is all on the tailgate.
So far i've used this forum to figure out what that annoying dinging was (airbag light was blown), searched about lifts and tires, and learned much, much more about this little truck. I'd be interested in meeting up with some locals if there is ever any meets or whatnot. I've been DYING to go offroad haha.
Anyways, here are some pics of the little truck.
When I went and picked it up:
Back home with my bike:
Took the topper off (for sale btw lol):
First time towing anything bringing my bike home to Daytona to convert it to a trackbike for the weekend:
I like it so far. It has it's little quarks, but overall is pretty nice. The a/c stopped blowing cold so that's priority currently... I would like to swap off the front lighting to something new and not yellow, put a small body lift on, black rims with 33's and that's about it I think.
