5 years...

Yesterday, at 1:05 PM marked the 5th year to the minute, that I have owned the ranger...

In that time, I have gone from this:







To this:

As of 8/20/09







Part of the 'deal' for my dad cosigning on the Ranger, was that I was 'not' to go out and buy all these extra doohickeys for the truck...

Cant say I kept up that part of the bargain.

Looks like 367. I never got why to hide license plates because every day you drive around everyone else can see them lol.

Also Dave, you need lift now! It's time to go big! At least your truck is still damn shiny

I don't know what it is about your truck, but I really like it.

I had the same kind of deal too when my step dad gave me the B4000. "No modding it whatsoever."

A year later, new headunit, new rims and tires, new tail lights, painted lower half of the body, shackles.....
