newbie

hey guys, my first "official" ranger an 05 xlt 2wd. bought mine after driving my dad's old 94. when he sold it i sorta missed driving that truck - was using it a lot then decided i wanted one myself. mine's a 5speed manual, single cab, arizona beige with beige/black interior.

here's a pic - will post more later in pic threads - been too rainy lately to do anything. so far only did tint - 10% but with truck windows wish i'd gone with 5% haha... btw i'm from louisville

i want to get an nice souding exhaust eventually soon as i get enough money - right now sort of cash strapped. I have a muffler that my brother got for me - he put the same on his car (4-cylinder) and sounds good. Its a 2-outlet muffler so I'll need to run 2 pipes from this on back and make it a dual outlet on the side at the rear

I really like this truck - its fun to drive, and looks like it would be easy and probably not really expensvie to mod. its a 2.3L 4-cyl, so hoping the cost won't be too bad.

I'll go through the site over the next week or so and see what you guys have done and check out your trucks too. Hope that I can make a lot of new friends on the site - as I hope to keep this truck a long time... I see a lot of Rangers on the road and in the area - must be good vehicles - at least I know my dad's old truck lasted what seemed like "forever" and never really gave problems.

thanks again...
