Icon7 New Lady Here '02 Ranger


Hello everyone,

My name is Madalyn. I am new to the whole forum idea. Always been one for facebook.
I love my '02 Ranger Edge. I don't like how the manufacturer made everything so ridiculous to work on, but guess thats why I love my truck so much. Spending my Sundays working on regular maintence and upkeep along with washing it to keep it looking good.

If anyone has questions please feel free to ask, I've done quite a bit of work to my truck in the last 2.5 years. Yess that's right, I am a female and I work on my own stuff. I have been working on Fords with my Dad since I was about 6 years old, and I am not afraid to get a little dirty .

If anyone has installed the nu image white face gauges in their ranger, please send me pics! They have been the only ones I can find to fit my truck! Everything else has the battery and check engine light in the wrong place.

Thanks for checking me out!

Welcome to the site Madalyn! Glad to hear you work on your own stuff, good to hear.

In regards to the gauge question, I was going to get some nu image gauge faces for my truck but had a bad experience with removing the speedo needles. So I just hopped on Ebay and bought a set of Explorer Sport Trac gauges. The only real issue with it is the mileage will be off, but there's a how-to on the site of how to "fix" that lol Not sure what kind of look you're looking for, but here's mine. If you put some in, post some pics!

Thanks everyone for all the welcomes!!! I will have some pics uploaded tonight and I'm picking up a toolbox for my ranger shortly. Waiting forthe guy to meet me.

Craigslist is a great place to find stuff. LOL

Crawly125 - do you have any pics of it lit up at night? Does it look like the pics that nu image has on the website? I have a manual mileage readout and I've put a dash kit in a kia sportage I had back in the day.

Hell yeah I'm a country girl and proud of it hope to have my pics up tonight. My truck is my life. I want to do something with the exhaust and would love to lift it.

Right now I'm putting a ton of miles on it with my job but I am looking for another vehicle so I can do some mods to this one.

Has anyone seen the ford ranger with the cummins in it? I think the guy lives in cali, just youtube it

Look under User CP tab, then under Settings and Options. Edit avatar I believe. Need to shrink a picture to make it fit tho.

Looked at the album. Nice lookin' truck. You probably disappointed a lot of the guys by not posting a pic of yourself. RF guys like girls with Rangers. See this thread :)
