howdy!

howdy, my name is eric, you can call me fordman, pete, or eric, or watever, those are my screen names on other forums, pete meaning peterbilt, fordman on most forums, and trucker_eric on my personal forum. i will be 16 in 2 days, i currently do not own a truck, but my dad has a ford ranger, 1998, 4x4, 4 door supercab with a 4.0 v6 and 5 spd auto trans. i may be getting it when i get my license, but until then, it needs a new oil pump, which requires removal of the engine, among other things. this is it currently.



this is how i want it to look when its done

Looks like a nice truck. Some big tires will do it justice.

Hey Trucker_Eric! Welcome to the club. I like the sound of the 31's on the stock wheels. There's a local guy who has the same whells and either 31's or 32's and it looks really good.
