Noob from KY

Hello all. I'm not a noob to Rangers-had my 97 2.3L/5 speed for 9 years now. I just bought my second Ranger of the weekend-a 05 FX4 4.0L/5 speed. The 97 is for sale if anyone is interested. $3500

Here are a few pics of my 97.




















Some pics of the FX4. I've always liked the silver, but I'm really digging the Dark Shadow Grey. The 4.0L/ 5speed is pretty peppy too and got 21 MPG on the first tank of gas so I was pleased. I'm planning on tinting the windows, adding a bugshield, and a bedcover. Later, I might crank the torsion bars slightly and then add a size or two larger tires. I've already ditched the stock nerf bars so I'll have to get some updated pics soon :)

My parents showed us pics in the local paper-it was definitely bad. We also some of the damage first hand when we exit @ Central City off the WK.
