Icon6 Obsession?

So, I am pretty knew to the Ranger community, but in the short time I have owned my Ranger, it has become almost like my obsession. Its almost like an drug. I mean, I go to work, think about what im going to do to her next, come home, get on this site (The guys who are behind this You are AWSOME!!) read and look at pics of what other people have done, and try to get ideas. Practically all my money is going into my truck!

Oh, all the money i put into my truck is pretty much all offroad stuff. I want to be able to put it in the car show, but its not going to be a trailer queen by ANY means. So, if you have any ideas on little things i can do to make her stand out at a car show, let me know!! Oh and if this whole obsession thing is just me, let me know that to lol.

It's pretty much an obsession+addiction with me too, not nearly as bad as I used to be though.

Addiction. It consume a large portion of my thoughs, time, and money. But it is also alot of fun for me, I love working on it and learning more about these trucks.

I guess you could classify me as obsessed with my truck. Maybe not as much as some, but this is my first Ford and I have really enjoyed learning about how another automotive manufacturer does things. I also do think about a lot of things I would like to do to my truck, if money ever permits. :)

It growing into more of an addiction, because I never used to spend much on the truck, but now Im scrounging up money all the time and buying little stuff and saving for bigger things. Some of my friends make fun of me because thats all I talk about or all I wanna do is spend money on the truck. I blame it on all of you! lol

obsession would mean someone who gets out of bed at 3 am just to do work on his truck,while addiction would be someone who always has to mod his truck.

It can be an addiction at times. I go through stages like that with all my interests. Before it was my mustangs i used to have, then my dirt bike, then my truck. Near the end of summer i was researching and buying all kinds of little stuff for the bike. Now that its winter i have been on here reading things about rangers and buying little things here and there and making wish lists. Its things like that that make life fun.

Yup I am right there with the rest of you. Almost all of my free money goes to the ranger and I am constantly on the internet to learn more and figure out what to do next. My wife hates it but she'll get over it:)
