New here, well sort of

Hi there,

My name is Hugo. I am from Yuma, AZ and currently own a Regular Cab Stepside 1999 Ranger XLT 2wd 3.0 FFV, handed down by my father. Bought back in 2002 as Salvaged, had to replace the Driver Side Roof, Fender, Bumper, and Glass. I have been a lurker for a good while, and never have introduced myself until now. I have learned much from this Ranger Community and would like to share my knowledge with others.

My Ranger currently sits up 3" higher with a Fabtech A-Arm Kit with 4.0 coils, riding on a set of 15x10 American Racing Baja Wheels with 32x11.5x15 BFG All Terrains. On the rear I just have a 1" Block. I hope to add a 3" Spindle Lift sometime in the future.

The interior Mods are just a Panasonic Deck together with a 10" Rockford Fosgate P3 sub running at 600w. The stock speakers have been replaced with Orion 2 way speakers as well.

I have alot of work left to do on this truck. Things such as painting the new Passenger Bedside [long story short, rear tire blew out and destroyed my old bedside] and the new Valance I picked up from a member on here. Front suspension needs to be redone, that will happen soon. As well as other minor things.

Here are some recent pictures. Enjoy!
