My "new" 06 fx4

Well, saturday I traded in my 350z and picked up an fx4...It is my 3rd ford truck, but first ranger
1988 F150
2002 Lightning....which was a badass truck (favorite of the 3)

I don't plan to do much to it, since I traded in the Z to save money (mods and car payments)

Just a little body lift, some stereo stuff, spray bed liner, and tints

Here it is right now

The 10ish mpg was killing me! I went from the lighting to an 06 civic si, then into the Z

I get tired of cars quickly, but plan to keep the ranger for a long while....very practicle for a DD

Yeah, but with the fx4 i have cheaper car payments, cheaper insurance, and i can fit more than a load of laundry in it

The Z was amazing, but I couldn't fit ANYTHING into it

I dont have much interest in modding the ranger....so i should be able to

Body lift is on the way, then probably bigger tires when the tread runs out on my current tires...spray in bed liner, tints, and a little audio upgrade
