New to DIY Mechanics ...

What's up everyone? My name's Michael from NC. I'm 24 and just now trying to develope my mechanic chops and learn to properly care for my truck, so I'll be picking y'alls brains alot, I'm sure.

Quick background of my truck:
2006 Ford Ranger 2WD XLT SuperCab

I bought it with under 25 miles on it by signing over my very first paycheck out of school.

After about 4.5 years of ownership, it has 113K miles. It's been used both for haul and work on the weekends and domestic during the week to get from A to B (including long road trips).

In the 4 years, I haven't had to do ANYTHING to it. Honestly an amazing truck that has given zero problems. I have replaced the battery once, kept up with filters and fluids, tires ... and when the snow quits I'ma change my plugs and wires for first time.
