The only thing keeping me going...

Is looking at all the pics of other Rangers on here.

Ford has/had a pretty sweet incentive deal going on up here in Canuckistan so I went and bought myself a 2009 Sport SuperCab 4.0l 5spd 4x2 (Silver).
It's been sitting at the dealership for a couple days now waiting for my insurance to go through. I don't know if anyone else has dealt with belairdirect before but they take awhile to process your application.

I probably would have gone mad by now if it weren't for all the different build and howto stuff on here. I don't think I'll be doing anything drastic to her (haven't come up with a name yet) for awhile yet but some of the threads on here have me second guessing myself.

I will definitely get some pictures of it once I have it. I'll take some pics of it at the dealership if I have my camera on me next time I go out though.

Right now I'm living and working in Newmarket, looking at places in Bradford, Holland Landing though, rent and housing prices are a little lower out there.

Right now my plans consist of debating drop-in versus spray-on bedliner versus rubber mat. The back will probably only ever see topsoil, lumber, drywall etc, very occasionally. I like some of the spray-ons, Rhino and Line-x, but I don't know if it's worth the $.
The extent of my mechanical experience is changing brake pads/rotors and changing oil/trans fluid on my old 92 XLT years and years ago, so don't expect to see me asking about converting from 2wd to 4.

Although, I have been looking at cranking the t-bar to give it maybe an inch more lift, but I'd be a little worried about when I am towing a boat or a camper (wishful thinking about having either one anytime soon though). Cranking the t-bar increases the tension on the suspension, doesn't it?

Oh and I might look into swapping the 60/40 bench out for bucket's, but then my girl won't be able to cuddle up as close when we go to the drive-ins.

Yeah Red was my first choice, but Silver will end up being more practical in the long run I think, I didn't get AC (or any other options) so silver is good for that, and dirt etc will show up less on silver (I hope). When I was working construction a couple of summers ago I was given a Black 4x4, and I thought it looked very sharp. I actually had black as my second choice but all the dealership could find in the GTA with no options was Silver. I love it now that my name is on the paper but I'd probably feel the same way no matter what colour it is.

If you're going to keep the truck, then SPRAY ON FTMFW!!! My bed would have literally rusted through by now with all the terrible **** I've dropped/slammed/lowered/scraped in there if it wasn't for rubber spray-on. A lot more friction than with drop-ins too.

Drop-in if you plan to sell the truck.

yep, i agree. Line-X, rhino ect is definantly worth the money. it also helps with re-sale value.

Round my end of the igloo, spray on actually depreciates the value of the truck. Otherwise I don't think there would be any business for drop-in's, despite the price difference.

WOW we cant get one WITHOUT AC here! (not that id want one without it, SoCal gets warm)

Oh, for cranking the T-Bars, look into the PreKey mod on this site. Its the better way to go for us folks that have the 07+ trucks.

Welcome! Congrats on the truck. I agree with most of the others, spray on liner it if you plan on keeping the truck! I have Line-X in mine and I'm very happy with it.

When I signed up with belairdirect... it was about noon and I had a my temporary insurance slip emailed to me within an few hours, and it was good for midnight that night. Not sure what they're doing with yours?
