New from Omaha

I have a 2wd ranger and it is completely stock for right now. I am getting dual magnaflow straight pipes on it in about 2 weeks. Have also been thinking of putting on a cold air intake. Not so sure though, i have heard of water getting sucked in through it. Has anyone else had that happen?? Along with the pipes, i will probably put headers on also. Should i take off the cats or leave them on? I have heard some that sounded a little raspy without. I would love to here some feed back.

I lived in Omaha (Bellevue) for the past 7 years. I just moved back home to Florida though. If you like mexican food go to Nettie's on Railroad Avenue in Bellevue. It is the best mexican food I have ever had. A good steak house is the Drover on S 73rd Street in Omaha. Get the Whiskey Filet. Italian? Try Lo Sole Mio on S. 32nd Avenue in Omaha. Go early there is always a wait. Go to the Music Meltdown. 98.7 the River has it once a year. It is cheap and there are a ton of bands. Do you like chocolate or your girl does? Go to the Old Market Candy Shop on Howard Street in Omaha and get "mud *****". Offutt was a great place to get stationed except for the weather and Eppley Air Field.
