hello from new mexico

just introducing my self.
my name is Joe. I have an 03 ranger xl 4x2 regular cab. i frequent rangerpowersports. I have kept my truck stock since 04 when i bought it, but i recently had a series of small fender benders and decided to fix it up a bit. this is what I have done so far

I installed a 4x4 grill with billet insert and a edge hood.
I also have a chrome 4x4 bumper w/ gray valance and fog holes (waiting to paint before truck before installing that.)
i installed a sliding rear window with factorytint and matched the sides.
I would like to lower it some day.
I also have 3 17" explorer wheels i am in need or a 4th.

the truck is mostly a work truck but i want it to look nice. any suggestions


my other vehicles incude
03 nissan frontier crew cab
06 buell firebolt xb9r
95 ford escort gt turbo (for sale)

KLC is in Roswell. Smokey is from Las Cruces, and a couple others I haven't seen on much lately.

As for the Junkyards take a quick trip over to El Paso, I've never seen so many junkyards in my life. You'd probably be able to find anything you could possibly want.

I just may have to. Albuquerque has a junk yard district, with a hotline to link them together by radio. i wonder if el paso is the same. Do you have any idea what part el paso the junk yards are in?

When you're over there go to Sunland Park. It's the nicest mall around Las Cruces.
