Update/ First post..?

Hey, I think this is my first post here. Here's how i got my ranger.
I bought my dad's 1998 Pathfinder for $500. On the first day back to school, in 11th grade, a kid hit me. I got $2500 from his insurance, and sold my pathfinder for $2500. So then I was blessed with finding a 2000 2wd 5-speed with 37,000 miles for $5000!

So far all I've done is get some 30 inch tires, remove valence, rain guards, and add rear 5% tint.

Thanks all! It's dirty, i know, but i do plan on getting a Fabtech 3in lift, shackles or body lift, 33x12.5x15 Procomp Xterrains. And a black cap that fits flush. All over a long period of time though, Haha

It's an excellent base to start with. Welcome to RF!!

You'll be hit with the mod bug in no time. I see you already have the clear corners. Just need the clear signal lens.

Clear corners are stock like that from factory on 98-00 models.
