New Ranger Guy in MO

Hey all!!! I just found this awesome sight, and have been reading on it for a couple of days now, so I figure I'd better register and introduce myself.

This is my first non-full size truck, and I love it so far.

It is a 97 Ranger Exteded Cab, 4x4, 4.0 with a manual transmission. It is kind of a dark green color, with a similar color interior. Not exactly my favorite color combo or anything, but It was a one owner with only 87,000 miles on it. I figure it has some life left in it.

I'm using it as a daily driver, so I don't want to get crazy with it or anything. Maybe a few minor mods in the future, I just have to figure out what will work and look good.

A little bit about myself:
I sell boats at The Lake of the Ozarks. My lines are Coblat, Four Winns, Carver Yachts, and Marquis Yachts. I love boats.

Besides trucks being a huge hobby of mine, I love shooting sports as well. Mainly Shooting Sporting Clays and Skeet, and also a big Handgunner.

I hope to meet many of you and look forward to your future help with projects and troubleshooting.

Thanks
Shane Landis

Thanks again,

did you two-tone your truck, or was that a factory paint job? Looks good...
