well i was going threw and intersection and some guy in a jaguar hit me doing a u turn(his fault) and he kept going, cant wait for the cops to find him so i can sue him for some money to put into the ranger =D i did about 3 spins and hit the curb doing about 40-45

pretty heartbreaking

You have the 2.3 in your truck? Why not just turbo that and run an 8.8 rear to get your drift? Oh, and Welcome!

turns out that the ranger was not as good as it looks
i toke it to my mechanic today to check it out and he said there is about 2400 dollars in repairs to the truck, leaks, timing belt, hoses, control arm bushing, something with the transmission, and others

for the 2 days i had the truck i fell in love =/
