Back in a truck!

Hey guys,

I'm sure not many of you around here remember me, but I spent many hours of my late teenage life on here! I loved my Ranger but I sold my Ranger to a guy for a price that I could not turn down. I ended up getting a Subaru WRX STi and let me tell you guys, what a blast. It couldn't have been more perfect except for the fact that it doesn't have a bed! So after a few years of thinking, wishing and working for it, I finally picked up a full size truck. For about 3 months I looked and ended up finding a 2011 F250 from a local guy. It's a super nice truck. 14,000 miles. It hit my pride a little bit to get a truck with some work done already but I couldn't beat the condition, mileage, and money already spent on the truck for the price. I hope to be back on the forums and get to work on a truck again.

Ill be sure to post some pictures when I can get to a computer.

Good to be back!

Welcome back, looking forward to pics.

You ever think you'll drive a Ranger again?

I have pondered a time or two about selling the Ranger, but I don't think I can bring myself to do it. I've put too much work into it to let it go.

Hey man, I will post some soon. I might would if I could find one in good shape. People just dog them so bad around here it seems like. It's a very tough decision to make when thinking about selling and you'll never get the money back but it was hard to turn it down when he offered me what he did. I miss the truck like crazy! I don't regret selling it though, I am really happy about how things have turned out.

Whats new with yours?

Yep, I figured so. I always wanted to do that but it was still kind of in the works when I sold my truck. I would love to have coilovers for this truck as well haha. Bigggggg $$$$$.

Welcome back. I remember your Ranger. Was nice.

Looks like you have the best of both worlds...a turbocharged car and a turbocharged truck. Doesn't get much better then that. Nice rig

Thanks everyone for the compliments! It's truly more than I could ever ask for in a truck. Smooth, fast, huge, and quiet! Def hard to get that combination!

Interceptor man the truck still looks so good! I actually showed a buddy of mine your project thread not too long ago. Still amazes me.

And thanks for the welcome back! I hope I can still fit in and show you guys what I have going on with the truck. This has always been the best forum I've run across.
