Hello from Seattle, WA.

Hey everyone, I'm a n00b to the truck thing. Just got my first one. I've had a bunch of subaru's in the past and my last car was a ~550hp turbo civic hatch. I got tired of people trying to race me in their riced out sedans and v6 mustangs. I've walked a dodge viper srt10 (among many other exotics) in my little 4 banger. There wasn't much on the road that could keep up so I got bored and decided to venture into the truck world. I also have a built yamaha banshee, so that was a factor in my decision on getting a truck aswell.

Anyhow, the truck is a 2000 Ranger 4wd 4.0l auto. It has a 3" body lift, 35" bfg a/t's, fiberglass "prerunner" front fenders, custom front and rear bumper w/heavy duty tow package, k&n cone filter and a 3" header-back flowmaster exhaust w/ two high flow cats and a turn down muffler right before the rear axle. The exhaust will be changed soon to a short pipe that dumps right behind the passenger side front tire. Where I live there are no emissions so its all good.

Anyone else on here from the great pacific north west?

Anyhow, here she is...


and my 'shee...

Thanks everyone.
Glad to be apart of RF.
I'm actually living in Maple Valley but it's a small town east of Renton.
I'm always in Seattle though.
Are there ever any local meets or anything?

Glad to see there's a bunch of locals.
Looking forward to meeting you all eventually.

Small or large, a meet's a meet and I'm totally down.
Just wanna meet some local ranger/ford truck owners.

Yeah, I'm definitely down for a meet.
Not sure on the wheeling though, my rigs making some loud clunking noises at around 30mph which I'm thinking are either the U joints or something related to the drive shaft.
Also my 4wd doesnt work at the moment cause my transfercase motor is shot.
Probably won't be able to get all that sorted out for another month or so unless I can sell my garrett gt35r and honda pistons soon.

But yeahhh, good to hear theres a bunch of you around here.
