Well its almost been a year already...

It's been almost a year since I wrecked the Ranger. Doesn't seem like it was that long, time went by so fast!
The build thread I had for it
https://www.ranger-forums.com/project-logs-82/99offroadrngrs-build-up-evolution-109423/

Few pics of how I had it before I wrecked.






After the wreck




Brand new LS and my foot stuck on the gas when i got knocked out= bald rear km2's. (had about 1500 miles on them)




What I've had since the Ranger:

98 4x4 with off road package 198k
How i bought it


midpoint


how it sold




1995 Bronco 5.8L V8




Current 2001 Camry LE 219k miles (it was my dads, he bought it with 8 miles)
All i've done to it was tint the windows and routine maintenance. I might swap the seats to black leather Lexus ES300 seats since they're a direct bolt in (aside the wiring)






.....I'll be coming back in full force soon

Camry looks good for the age. Bet you will miss the MPG when you get a new vehicle.

yeah the cop said if i had my seat belt ON i'd be in rough shape/dead because it would of held me in place and broke all my ribs on my left side but since i didn't have it on, i went flying to the passengers side lol the tint saved me from a lot of cuts too from the shattered glass. camry runs great, just did tune up and its gotten a bit of its pep back haha

2 hours of sleep in 48 with the heat on full blast i fell asleep. woke up when my left front tire hit the snowbank on the left side of the road. over corrected and started fish tailing and completely lost it, 180 into a telephone phone (split it in half) at 40 mph

nope I only wear it in my mom or dads cars because one is a 2009 other is a 2011 and they yell at you for not wearing it OR if im on the highway.
I disabled the chime in my car already but i cant do that in theirs.

I also wear it when i have a passenger but when im alone i rarely wear it.

they say click it or ticket, i say suck it lol but thats my personal preference. I just have a bad habit of not using it.

Yea, that was a crazy accident man. I can't believe you didn't save much outta that truck either.
I don't wear my seatbelt much either, but thats because my truck won't warn you or anything.

Can't believe it's been a year already. I hope you get another ranger soon. One of the few instances where a seat belt not being worn actually helped. Had it been a head on or roll over you prolly would have a memorial sticker made for you.

Mad you sold that bronco thing was nice.

What I wish my work payed for a bus/train pass. But then again I don't have bus or train service where I live. But where I work is another story.

My seatbelt saved my life. And I always wear mine thanks to a mom that wouldn't put the car in gear until everyone was buckled.

My little cousin died because she wasn't wearing her seatbelt...Needless to say I always think about her still. :-( Moving on I do hate that chime noise the ranger/most vehicles make. I really need to disable it. For things like, I don't feel like wearing it for a second, or when I'm offroading I never wear my seatbelt. It makes it super hard. 95% of the time it is on.

When I'm with my parents they make me wear it all the time but when I'm alone I don't tend to put it on. The bronco went because it needed work I didn't feel like doing and it drove like **** steering wise even with new cam adjusters and alignment. If I threw a Sfa in it then it would be cool. It did have a fresh tranny which me and my friend put in when he still owned it as well as a new rear axle. It had my old 33" tires that were on the ranger before i got my km2s
