Hey everyone, new to the site and wanted to say thanks for putting this great resource together.

I just sold my 2003 Mach 1 after 2.5 happy years, time for something more practical with cheaper insurance. I picked up a 1998 Ranger 4.0L Auto 4x4 with 117k mi for $4400 and put on a new set of Bridgeston Dueler A/Ts. The truck drives great. Of course it needs a few small things fixed, like the center console, dome light, and tail lights (I hate the clear ones), but overall I'm really happy. Any suggestions for what to do with the truck to make it a better commuter/ everyday vehicle are welcome. Thanks again!

Put some pics up! And welcome. If you hate the "clear" lights as you described, go get yourself a set of 06+ taillights. It's agreed based upon majority here on RF that those tails look the best! Nice to see someone with the same drivetrain I have.

This is the only picture on my camera...shortly after getting the old worn out mud tires off (they're still in the bed).

Someone buffed the bed and it came out really well. I'm going to start on the cab this weekend.
