First Time Ranger Owner from NE, Iowa

Hi everyone, my name is Jake and I'm from Waukon, Iowa. My Ranger is the second vehicle I've ever owned the first being a rusty 1993 Honda Civic LX. I got this truck after my Civic decided to blow a head gasket which cost me a grand to fix and then ended up blowing the new head gasket. My family knew a banker in another town who had to repo this Ford Ranger from a old hippy who couldn't make the payments. I didn't have to think twice about getting it I just had to come up with the money for the down payment of $1,200.

My Ranger is a 2002 XLT Supercab 4x4 4.0L V6 Manual 5 Speed. It had 112,800 miles on it when I got it back in May now it has around 118k. Overall I love this truck.

In the very near future I plan to do a roll on bedliner and change out all the gauge cluster bulbs to LED bulbs since half of them are burned out.

Attached are some pics of my truck after a hand wash with Turtle Wax Ice car wash. Yes I know the drivers side mirror isn't the original. Apparently when they repoed the truck the drivers side mirror was they took it to a auto body shop and I guess they couldn't find the correct mirror.
