This may be kinda corny to some people but it was kinda cool that someone gave me a thumbs up on my truck, all the work and money has paid off in my eyes. As long as I like it and others do as well then that makes me happy.

i get comments like that all the time on my truck at first it was weird, heh... my mazda was a real pos in my opinion, sure it was sorta shiny, but i never washed it, my ranger on the other hand, still looks like it JUST rolled off the lot... tho i have added alot of stuff to it, personally, i think its the best looking ranger in the entire buffalo area... tho, D's truck is faster, but then again ill make it further in the snow than he will lol

i remember the first time i went to get gas the night after i got my truck, lol.. it was at night.. a guy pulled up behind me in an f250 work truck, or somethin like that.. starts talkin about the weather, and that we'll be ready for the snow with the 4x4 on our trucks.. i remember thinking to myself, how cool.. a man's convo about trucks while pumping gas. lol, never had that convo with the neon i drove before the ranger. that was when i figured it was worth it, haha.

Yea little kids love my truck with the smiley covers on it lol, always pointing at them. One night a guy in a bronco started asking me about the light bar and where he could get one, he has oversized BFGs on it as well.

i was at the B of A.. (Bank of America)
and some little kid looked sup at my truck and said Whaooo...

and then his older brother about 16ish said "nice truck". i said thanks, and got in from the parking lot. the littler kid said " what is it?" and the older one said "its a high performance off-roading ranger"


i just smiled and drove away. then i got gas and was angry again

Nope. I usually downshift and leave.. I'm no fan of traffic.
