Post Now Rangerless with pics.

Well, I've been looking and found what I wanted for the right price so now it's in my driveway. Had been looking for something with some room and easier towing of our boat. There were only 4 FX2s in this whole city and I have one of them now. It's a loaded '07 with a 5.4/auto 3:55 limited slip, power everything (including a power sliding rear window which I love) and pretty much all of the other goodies. Got a smokin deal on it and my Ranger trade-in so I couldn't pass it up. It may just barely fit in the garage (lengthwise), gotta re-organize it this weekend but it may have to sit outside...don't know yet. Most of our neighbors with full-size trucks in this neighborhood have to leave theirs outside too so it's not big deal. It's a quiet well lit neighborhood so it doesn't bother me much. I'll just have to wash it more often...lol! Took me most of the day on Sunday to get the Ranger back to stock so I will eventually have alot of parts sell on here, stay tuned.

I love it so far. Only has 34 miles on it right now. I love the tire/wheel combo...20" wheels with all-terrains! Now i"m going to have to get:

bed cover, cat-back exhaust, and cold air intake.

Yeah, it's got the "Harley" style front end on it and that's the main reason I wanted an FX2 model. I don't need or want 4x4 so 2wd works great for me. I love all the body color matched stuff like bumpers, mirrors, and that front airdam looks killer.

nope...no more suspension mods for me. It may be a little exagerated since the driveway is slightly downhill, it's not bad enough to bother me.

That is a really nice truck I have been seeing alot of those FX2's rolling around here and I really like the way the front end looks if I had the funds I would get one in a heartbeat.

Btw, I got it to fit in the garage but with inches to spare. I'm going to have to come up with some way to get it parked in the exact same spot every time so the garage door will shut. Maybe one of those yellow plastic things you can stick to the garage floor.

tennis ball from the ceiling... you can also cut a whole in the wall the size of the bumper to give you an extra inch or two...

Hey real good looking truck. What all are you going to sell off the ranger? I'd really like to get the clear corners and bama tuner if you are going to sell them. Pm me with a price or something.
