Icon8 This is sad

Happened a few moths back, but I was checkin out his myspace tonight and trying to put out a remembrance for it lol... I know I talked about it before, but never showed anyone the pics.

This was my buddy's 04... Had the Double lift on it with the 750 Hypercoils...

27k miles

35x12.50 Hankook MT's

18" wheels..

4.0L 5spd power everything...

Here's what his gf did...



















And here's her only injury from it...



Going down a bout 30* hill in 4 low in 3rd gear on a icy day... Just slipped and rolled I think twice before it landed on it's top in a ditch... Sad day... I think he Got about $17k for it...

Paid $9k for it and owed I think somewhere around $7k...

Sad sad day that was :-(

Holy cow. What do you say after that?? Sorry. How come he only paid $9k for it, and it was worth much more??
Nice truck. I got rid of my 04' 4*4 ext. cab silver xlt with 46,000 miles because the lease was up.

Shoulda bought it man!

His roommate didn't want the truck anymore and since his roommate drove the service truck for his company all the time he never drove the ranger... Bought it new off the lot and sold it to Josh (guy who owned that wrecked beauty lol) for what he owed left on it... Which was $9k... He got a killer deal... Same guys that did my lift, did his lift a few weeks after mine... At one point there were 3 silver (01 and newer) double lifted rangers on 35's all with 4.0L's... I had 16, Josh and Brian both had 18's... Brian's actually a member on here... Hasn't been on in a REALLY long time... Nor have I seen him around town... He may have moved lol

I'll let my girl drive my truck if she needs to. I'd rather he be safe in my truck than upside down in a nissan sentra. My trucks replaceable. I can redo everything I've done to it on another, doesn't work that way with a girlfriend lol
