Noob to the Ranger...my 1st truck

Oy. My name is Davor and I am from South Florida. I just moved here from Washington State and decided I need a truck. Prior this I owned Ford CVPI. This is my first truck. Future plans include either a mild lift or subtle lowering and general upkeep. Ranger is 2004 fleet truck that was kept in decent condition. Only fix it needs is A/C, which blows only hot air. Truck has 72K on ODO and has no optional extras, at all. Its is less than 'lowest trim level' because I donít even have A/C but I love this little thing. Although I love all makes and models, I've been driving Fords all my life. I've owned 3 Foci, retired Crown Vic PI and now this Ranger. I joined here for DIY info and to troubleshoot in case my truck isn't up to spec. Here are couple intro pics, I am sure most people here will see it as blank piece of paper.

IMPORTANT

If anyone has any useful info on maintenance and possible hidden problems this particular year/model might have please mention it so I can educate myself ASAP. I know how to use search function, too.

Thanks for listening, R-F members!

Great photos!

I bet you had a few cars slow down when you went by them in the Crown Victora?

welcome to R-F! your truck is basically mine, but stock. i'd go with a lift over lowering then you wont have to slow down on speed bumps but thats my opinion not yours welcome!

Thanks for your welcome ! More I look around more I want to wrench on my Ranger. There are lots of nice rides here, both lowered and lifted. I have to do little research for mild lift or bigger dia wheels/tires [think 15-16 inch wheels + chunky tire, not DONK]. Will keep everyone updated as time goes on. Thanks again.
