Introduction from a new member in North Texas.

Greetings,

I am not going to match the typical demographics on this forum I suspect.

Here is my Ford Ranger: The Yeager's 2005 Ford Ranger XLT

Wow, what a page. Welcome to RF!

What makes you say that you "wont match the typical demographics on this forum?"

I am in my fifties, have four college degrees, and am perfectly happy with a 28+ MPG stubby little stock truck. :-)

Sounds like you have been busy.

Would you say that you are being "frugal" in your ownership of your ranger?

Its a very clean truck by the way. Good job.

Frugal works for me. It is our little work horse. Spends most of its time in the garage and gets out a few times a month.

Some of my other vehicles I get a little more carried away.

The Yeager's Kawasaki Ninja 250s

The Yeager's Ford Escort LX Wagon

The Yeager's Triumph TR6

that stubby little truck would look real nice with a very mild drop and more classic looking wheels. might even have a slight positive effect on fuel mileage

If I lived on pavement I would tend to agree. However, here in the land of gravel roads and the 4x4 1 ton dually I rather inclined to keep the ride height. The wheels, while not unattractive, could be on the table at some point and replaced with something cooler.

Your original post has inspired me to finally stop reading long enough to register. Together, you and I can bump up the average age of this group quite a bit! lol!
BTW, that's an exceptionally fine lookin' truck you have there.
Here's mine:

The average age was part of the reason for my original quip as you have already commented.

You truck is pretty clean looking as well. The F-150 reminiscent dual exit exhaust is an interesting touch.

I read the whooooole thing.

I found your experience with State Farm to be the same as mine, including an agent who has gone "above and beyond" (twice) for me when the Corp office has done their utmost to screw me. My agent will be retiring soon though, so I'll be dropping State Farm when he does.

My 2004 model, built in June '04 (3 months prior to yours), appears to be exactly like your 2005 model. However, I didn't know, until I read your Page, that my timing chain is actually a *belt*. aack! Who'd a thunk it? I'm making a mental note to put that on my list of things to worry about.

My exhaust thingy was installed by the original owner. So were the bed rails. I'm shopping for a tonneau cover and/or a topper though, so the rails will have to go.
