update:

i may be buying this ranger as a DD since my dad doesn't like it (too small for him)

also....he accidentally wrecked it this morning
he forgot to put on the parking brake at his shop and the truck rolled over the concrete parking barrier and into a concrete pole....smashed the bumper and headlight
i don't have pictures yet but he says its not pretty

I think this truck is a perfect upgrade for you. Are you going with offroad or street look? I have a set of 08 mustang GT wheels/tires that would look good.

Needs 15 inch rims! I like the look FX2.3 has. I think they are Weld rims.
