Joining the ranger club, again..

Some of you may remember me, although I'm not sure who all is still here that was a few years ago.

I joined the forum in 2010 with this ugly thing..


I got to the point where a 2wd ranger wasn't worth me driving, so I decided to sell it. Shortly
after selling that, I picked up this jeep. I've posted this jeep on here before, so some might recognize it..


I think I only had that for about 6 months before I had destroyed it so much, it was constantly having problems. So, being the dumbass I am (this is the only decision regarding vehicles I've made ) I decided to part it out. Not long after I started deconstructing it, I found another jeep with a lift on it, dinky stock tires, and a few little issues.. picked it up for $1300, took the lift off of it, sold the lift and some other junk off of it bringing it to only having around $800 in it. I still had my lift and tires off of my red jeep, so I put those on the white jeep and this was the end result..


I enjoyed that jeep for quite some time, but couldn't afford to drive it 3 hours round trip a day to work. So I jumped scenes and picked up a little rice burner (still have it). Boosted it, and slammed it for a fun little daily driver.



I decided after a couple day vacation in Ohio (my home state), after living in South Carolina for 5 years, that I wanted to move back. Got a job offer while I was visiting, took it. Went home, finished my last week of work in SC, then loaded up and was off to Ohio. As most northerners will agree, the roads suck *** in the north, and anything slammed with surely be beaten to pieces and fall apart. My Honda was taking quite the beating after a month of being up here, so I started looking at trucks after being approved for a loan. Started with f150's but couldn't find anything I was too interested in. One night I stumbled across a ranger that caught my attention online. I immediately drove the hour and a half drive at 9pm on a work night to stop by the dealership and make sure it was worth me putting in an offer (cosmetically obviously, couldn't test drive it at night lol). Put in an offer, and they took it. After 2 weeks of hassles with the dealership, like the detail shop backing it into a wall, I finally picked up the truck and have been extremely happy with it since..

Thanks lol. Yep, not sure what my plans are quite yet though. 33's don't fit too bad as is, but I'd like a little more room.
