Icon6 My First truck, The Danger Ranger

This is a thread that i wanted to post so that you can see my truck and let me know anything from improvements to just a comment. My dad always told us boys that he would buy us our first vehicle, on one condition, it had to be a truck. Well he held his promise for my older brothers, and then it came my turn, we looked and looked, but nothing. I had finally found a decent truck, It was a 1994 Ford Ranger XLT standard cab. It had a 2.3L I4 with a 5 speed tranny, and it came stock with no AC. I was fine with that, i was happy that it had manual locks and windows, which meant nothing to go wrong. Sure it had some dings and dents, but it also had 153,750 miles on it, and it was only $1600. It has an open 7.5" rear end with a 3.45 gear ratio, In the pics you can see i had HIDs on it but the dim one burnt out, i also had euro taillights on it but red bulbs are illegal in florida so i bought som off ebay and the color burnt off so i got a verbal warningso i swapped back to stock. I have made a few changes since these pic but i will post some when i get a chance. I love mytruck

yeah they have fog lights in them but the bulbs and wires suck so they dont work right now but i am gonna fix it, they are nice when you need to see to pull up at night but you dont wanna blind someone with your headlights
