New - But Familiar

Hello,

I'm new here, but I've had my share of Rangers/Bronco IIs. I had an '89 2.9l black Bronco II, a 3" lifted 96 2.3l Ranger, and now have a 5" lifted 08 2.3l Ranger.

I love Rangers obviously because I grew up with them, but I chose an 08 Ranger because it's the most efficient truck on the market here and I love mini monsters (4 banger trucks with attitude), and it's the only mini-truck left on the market.

I hope my next truck purchase continues to be a Ranger, preferably the same size truck but with a crew cab and 4 cyl diesel 4x4.

I'm a member of RPS and have been a member of other Ranger forums in the past. Just got around to signing up here not too long ago, thought I should do an introduction! :)

BTW: 26 years old.

Ya wasn't what I needed, It had a divider that split the bed in half at the hinge, which was cool for putting tool in the front part that locked, but really spread them out to much and ended up only having about 3' of bed space so... If you just use it to keep stuff dry and not use your bed much it's great, just not what I needed.

Thanks for the comments!

I got the cover/bed liner/mid-gate used for $175. I use it a lot, it's also easy to take off (has a spring latch) if you have two people.

@Jimmeh: Not much new lately, no. Latest mods were a gear ratio change, step rails, and black headlights.

@jeweler: The tent is a Sportz truck tent. Got it for $75 and it was never used!

@08XLT: Oh, I think I remember your truck too. It's white right?

Wow, browsing around the site real quick, it looks like mostly lifted Rangers! My kinda site! :D

Damn that looks good. Nothing like lifting a brand new truck, and then it actually seeing dirt!

Welcome to the dysfunction
