New guy from Missouri

Hey my name is Zach Heindselman I'm from Lewistown, MO. I'm 19 but soon to be 20 (couple of days). I have a 1998 Ranger xlt with the 3.0l 4x4. Some mods i have on it are 31x10.50x15 bridgestone duelers a/t, front grille guard with some off-road lights on it, and a tool box. Not much but OK. Was used for a daily driver until recently when gas prices forced me to buy a car. You know how poor college kids are cant afford anything. Been thinking about getting a leveling kit and some mud terrain tire but haven't got money right now. Mostly wheel in some friends and family fields or on gravel and undeveloped roads. If you have any questions just ask.

Take the 31's off.

Ask Goodysgotacuda. He'll tell you how much he loves the 3.0.

Welcome. Any pictures of the truck?

Howdy. Welome the site. If you want more power, there are several things you could do: Supercharger, exhaust, intake, chip/tuner...

Welcome to the R-F club. Sounds like you need to re-gear.
