return to ranger

Hey everyone.My first car was a Ranger that I had for 13 yrs.It had 219,??? miles when I parked it.Since them I moved to a metropolis and have owned Mustangs.A month ago I bought a 98 Nissan Frontier(great deal)I needed a ride that was cheap on gas and could haul stuff.I had originally planned on buying a Ranger this spring but came across the Nissan and couldn't pass up the great deal.The truck runs fine and everything I just wasn't happy with it(not a Ford).So about a week ago I learned the Ranger was being discontinued.After a few days of shopping around,I ordered the truck I wanted.It was like a little battle at the dealership(long story) but I got the truckI wanted at the price I wanted.Couldn't be happier.I ended up not trading the Nissan because they didn't want to give me enough for it.(Anybody want to buy a Nissan?)
My plans for it(Ranger) are tint,rainguards,low profile black toolbox and 15x8 black aftermarket wheels that protrude ever so slightly from the truck.Glad to be back in a Ranger.http://

I used to be but every since I got my new engine there is like nothing left to do to it which is really why I join forums.To get advice on mods or how to do them or to learn and discuss the idiosyncracies of a product
