Tracking down my old truck?

Hi guys. Been a very long time since i posted here. I was recently helping a friend who is researching a sas and was searching for my old build thread and came across this thread -->

It got me wondering where its at now? I've heard from several people that shortly after i traded it in they seen it on a car hauler headed south and by the looks of that thread it made it into the US. Ive also been told its been spotted with a large metal box on it back in Canada. It just got me wondering where it ended up and if its still rolling around? I often think back to that truck and miss it. if anyone has seen it or has any pictures of it id love to see them!

Since I traded in the ranger I've been working away at my jeep. Put lots of time into building the jeep but i can honestly say its not been the same experience as building the ranger. Its definitely nice to just order what you ned and away you go but theres not the same satisfaction as building everything you need from scratch.

Here is the ranger when i sold it

And since i last worked on the jeep i now have a Dynatrac ProRock 44 up front, 37" goodyear mtr's, poison spyder fenders, sliders, and rear bumper, Rock Krawler 3.5" x-factor lift, a 9.5k winch and some led lighting. not sure what else but the jeep definitely out wheels my ranger haha. the only thing my ranger had on the jeep is height. it was so comforting being able to drive over just about anything and not worry about hitting the body lol.

You could try like I've done, punch in the VIN on google (if you still have said VIN)

I'm from québec, found my ex-ranger for sale in Michigan.
