i may end up with an 03 4x4 ranger XLT
going through financing issues right now, stepmom FUBARed my dads credit... but hey. maybe ill get lucky

anyway, ive never had a ranger before, and this on is just a few hundred miles away from 70k

are there any suggestions as to what i need to change or replace once i hit this number? (i.e. oil, spark plugs....)

oh, read the how to on the fog lights, and airbox silencer removal. gonna be the 2nd and 3rd things i do after i wash and wax


i will say i have been impressed with what ive seen on this forum so far, used to frequent clubrsx.com

alright.
gonna silver sharpie in some of the scratches that are past the paint
found the fog lights/hi beams
found intake silencer removal but im not sure if thats a great idea
found T-bar crank (including how it changes the suspension geometry)
looked up how to change sparkplugs and T case oil
looked up LED dashboard in case i get bored over a weekend

i dont have extra cash right now, about to start college, so i cant do anything expensive. plus this truck has to get me through 4 or 5 years of college and im gonna use it as a work truck after that
