Thanks everyone for the friendly welcomes

It's funny how I am driving a Ranger.

My son leased a nice green 2002 4x4 Off-Road in Colorado and a year into the lease his wife became pregnant. He tried rolling the lease into a purchase or lease of an SUV but the cost was ridiculous.

So we transferred the lease to me (I was looking for a Blazer at the time)

Once it arrived out here from Denver, and the very first ride, I knew it was a great truck. I bought a Leer fiberglass lid for the bed and just drove the heck out of it for 2 years. At the end of the lease, I bought it, but got blind sided by a 2006 Red Fire Mustang GT 5 speed. I added a Borla exhaust, Hurst Comp + and dash trim kit.

Drove the Mustang for 14 months, and realized that I needed a Truck and a Corvette more than I needed a Mustang and a Corvette (81).

So, (much to my wifes' happiness), I called my local dealer and ordered a loaded Fx4.

Gawd I love this truck. (It rides and handles exactly like the original green one my son and I shared)

Aside from a Truxedo bed cover, it's stone stock, but thats okay. My only plans are to upgrade the stereo and add a couple of gauges.

This one will be here a very long time.

-Paul

(I'll post a link to the old Ranger and Mustang soon)
