New in Northern California

How's it going guys. I'm new to the site and as the screen name says I have a lowered 98 Ranger 2WD obviously. I bought the truck for 300 bucks w/ a blown up 3.0 and it has been a labor of love slowly making it the way I want it. It was a base model work truck and I replaced the motor and it runs and drives great now just slowly doing all the little things I want. It's lowered w/ a Belltech drop kit, and has a K&N FIPK kit, tinted windows. It's not much to look at now w/ the stock rims that I just painted black and wrong profile tires (thanks to the company I bought it from)

I just recently replaced the base model seat w/ a XLT '99 seat what an ordeal that was. I'd like to put carpet and power windows and locks in but right now I'm doing the stereo w/ a double din dvd and a single sub in the rear extended cab area.

Anyways I'll post some pics wish I had some of the progress but all I have is current stuff. I'll upload em tommorrow but again those wheels and tires are ugly so keep that in mind when you look.

Look forward to talking with you guys and learning some stuff.
