Hi from North Carolina

Hi there,
I am a new owner of an old 1990 Ford Ranger ext cab. The truck has 139k miles on it but looks and drives amazingly well for its age. The previous owners obviously took good care of it. When I saw for sale it I could not pass. I am now using it for everyday drive and I love it. My other vehicle is a BMW X5 truck which I now reserve for trips and leisure driving as maintenance is awfully expensive on these cars. The Ranger may not have all the bells and whistles of my other truck but I love it and it may be more reliable in the long run.

Yes, planning to do many things on it starting first by putting it in even greater shape (tie rods, ball joints, add fender flares, may be a fresh paint, etc...) depending on time and budget of course.
