Thanks to Everyone

Well everyone, It has been quite a while since I have been on here. But I want to thank everyone for their help while I was an active member on here, I got a ton of great ideas for my 01 Ranger (before Hurricane Wilma destroyed it) I know alot of you saw it in Truckin' Magazine a few years ago and that was probably the last time I was on here. Well after graduating from the Merchant Marine Academy I was debating on getting another Ranger or going to a F-150. The good news is that I got a great deal on a brand new 2007 Saleen S331 Supercharged F-150. Bad news is that I have been hanging out on the SOEC.org forums trying to upgrade the new truck. I have met a ton of great people on here and wanted to thank each and every one of you. Below I've included a pic of my old truck and one of the new truck, just incase you don't quite remember me.

New truck is awesome, ditch the headlight covers for some Harley headlights though.

Yeah the sticker on mine was 65k, but since it was a 2007 and only had 150 miles on it I somehow managed to talk them into 32k out the door. I honestly think I am one of the luckiest guys alive right now! I love having all that power too. I love having the blacked out headlights during the day.... In Florida not many people have an all blacked out truck with the chrome wheels. I think it looks really clean with them on and so many people stop at lights and say how sick it looks. Although I am thinking about getting the Harley lights for it too for when I am too lazy to put the covers on.

Looks tight there Billy. Have you rolled into the Towers yet with it? I remember the ol' Ranger. Recall the time you got stuck next door to my parents house in the sand and my papa and I helping you get out with the piece of wood, hehe.

Matt: When I decide it's time to get off this ship I'm on now, I'm thinking about making a pretty good road trip. Already know I'm going to head up to NY to see a few of my friends, then off to Freehold, NJ for Truck Upgrades at JDM Engineering. After that, heading to Altoona, PA. then not sure. Would love to make it out to KY to see you and the Family, Especially since its been like 3-4 yrs!
