New from NW burbs of Chicago

My name is Henry and am new to the forums. Purchased my first truck right before Christmas. It is a 99 ranger supercab with 4x4 and 5 speed and 4.0L OHV engine. Truck has just over 189k miles on it, but is pretty darn clean. Here is a picture of it...




As you can tell by the screen name I am also into muscle cars. I had a 71 GTO that I owned for about 6 years, but gave it to my brother for his birthday. He is in the process of finishing what I started (getting the body rust free and finishing the 464 stroker motor).



My current car is a 2004 GTO that I have put more money into than I care to know. I drove it in winters since 2005 and this is the reason I bought the Ranger.



I am already enjoying reading up on the Ranger. Future plans for the truck are fairly simple for now. In the next year or 2 I would like to get a 2nd set of wheels to mount a nice set of warmer weather tires on and use the stock wheels to mount a decent set of winter tires on. Othe than that some small things to fix on the truck, but overall I am loving it already.

I was also curious what you guys think of what I paid for the truck. I paid $3,800 for it.

good, I could not find anything cheaper that was not shady. I saw a 2000 same options with 118k miles for $3000, but carfax said it had 298k miles and the car title didnt match carfax either.
