Newbie here ...

I'm the proud new owner of a 2010 Red Fire Metallic Ranger XLT.

I was fortunate enough to find a 2WD with a 4.0 SOHC that has the SLA front suspension.

Took me over a month to weed through all the Rangers that had the 3.0 or the 2.3 DOHC but with a lot of patients I finally found one.

My Ranger has the traction control and some kind of stability control thing. I'm interested in learning more about that.

The first mod is going to be some 18" rims and low profile tires. Any suggestions?
I'll be posting up some pictures soon.

Welcome to RF!

With a 2wd, you can either go up or down. The choice is yours.
Got any pictures of your truck?

Thanks for the warm welcome ... I knew some people on here would be against me lowering my truck, but I'm more of a street truck person vs the lifted 4X4s
I want to be able to go into the corners without rolling my truck over.
