Just got my first ranger, 20,000 miles on a 2003!!

I just got a bone stock white 4x2 with the 2.3l I4.

I couldn't be happier.

I'm not a huge ford fan (aside from mustangs.) While FOMOCO has always made great vehicles, I just never fell in love with them. I have been a german car tuner and builder for the last 10 years or so.

My last pristine VW got rear ended about 2 months after I completed work on it and put it on the road Needless to say I was about to explode, but I was hurt when the nimrod (in a ford LOL) rear ended my stopped car.... so I reserved my explosion for later, when I could move.

I'm a machinist (soon to graduate from a tech school) and I have a few ideas for mods for the truck. I can't leave anything well enough alone.

When I figure out where the hell you guys put your "build threads" I will dedicate a thread to the truck and post up when I modify things.

Very nice! I dig the clear corners and the rain guards. I want both of those on mine eventually. My list of wants is pretty large for the current budget, spent more than I had planned to replace the totaled car on this.

I'll eventually want to lower mine, throw a rear sway on it... I am going to buy some 17X8" mustang wheels from a buddy, and I have a new bluetooth deck and rear speakers coming to me from crutchfield.
