New around these parts.

Howdy! New to the community and thought I'd introduce myself. I'm not new to rangers, though, as my dad has owned rangers since I can remember, and I'm at the ripe old age of 16 now haha. As my dad is looking to upgrade to a new truck, I am getting the keys to his 01 XLT. It's a truck I've loved since he bought it in about 04. She's an old truck, used well, but still runs like new. She's affectionately known as "old blue", as my username shows. My goal with it is to build back up, sort of, into more of something to be reckoned with. I want to make the 3.0 in it a stronger engine, and really make her stand out appearance-wise. I don't want to make a lowered, blinged up street racer, nor do I want a rediculous rock crawler. Stumbled upon this forum, thought it'd would be the perfect place for help and ideas.

couple on my profile in an album called Old blue. Other than that, no more at the moment. She's nothing fancy at the moment, but I've got some plans (but little money for them D:) to build it up.

4x4. We don't care for 4x2's, never know when you need the 4 wheel drive around here.

Yup, same way I feel, I'd rather have 4x4 than get pulled out in the snow.
