Hey from CT!

So I've been trying to find a good truck for a while now. I finally found and bought a 96 Ranger Super cab with a 3.0 and 2wd. I was hoping to get a manual but when I saw mine I fell in love. It has 48,000 original miles and I payed $3200 cash. I have been told that one of the best used cars to buy is one that the owner is too old to drive because it means they are not just trying to get rid of a "problem-car". The transmission pan drips a little so I will be putting a new gasket on soon. Also it will need new rear shocks. Can't wait to start upgrading!

P.S: I know i should ask this somewhere else but if you know any good rear shocks for the money...

-thanks and i'm glad to join, Garrett
