Icon10 Hiyuh!

Well, new owner, more out of necessity than anything else. Was driving a Nissan Titan, but this local $4.07 gas coupled with 11mpg was killing me. The Ranger gets about 22 and is nearly paid for, so I guess that counts for something. Surfed in looking for performance parts for my pokey 3.0, so here I is.

Bought my Ranger about a month ago from an elderly couple who quit driving it the day it rolled over 90k. Apparently do not believe in driving cars past 100k, and since the dealer was hosing them on the trade (for a new Ranger of course) they sold it to me. Its good for what I want it for, daily driver, parts hauler, lumberyard runner, but man this 3.0l is a pokey little bugger, and I wish I coulda found a 5spd. Anyway, I had some questions I couldn't get answered by searching the archives, so I figured before I start asking questions, I should say hello.

Nice, probably needs a tune-up and such, but that is minor. You should get plenty of life out of it.
