Noob with pics

Just picked her up last week. Drove it off the lot and went 200 miles round trip to visit my in laws and love every second of the ride. Only things I added it didnt have when test drove it were the bedliner and "Ranger" floor mats...

So far love the truck...look forward to posting and getting to know all of you!

Nice truck! I love that Dark Shadow Gray (DSG). I think it would look good if you got your grille color matched. Welcome!

Love the DSG. I almost bought the exact same truck, but I wanted the bedliner and class III hitch installed and the dealer wouldn't work with me on it so I went somewhere else and got this one instead:Name:  000_1421.jpg

Thanks everyone for the warm welcomes. Dsg was actully my second choice for color, with silver frost being my first choice, but sinse my previous car was silver frost I thought why not live alittle and change it up haha...

I had them put in the bed liner as you can tell from the pics, and I also bought a set of the "Ranger" all weather mats for the front. Other than those two additions its gonna be stock for awhile, but I have few ideas in mind when the time comes. (wheels, tires, vent shades, bug shield...nothing to crazy)

Thanks again for the warm welcomes, hopefully I get to keep this truck and my wife doesn't steal it from me. She has been hounding me to get one for awhile, now Im not sure if she wanted it for me or her, she always wanted a 5spd supercab Ranger even when she was in high school haha...

And some really nice looking trucks here too!

I literally drove off the dealer lot so it was a full tank. I filled it with alittle under 1/4 tank and got 287 miles. If my memory is right it took about 13.5 gallons?

Im taking it to NJ this weekend to visit my family so we will see how it does then, Ill try to pay more attention.
