whats up yall

first off i would like to say hello to everyone on here!

a week ago today i made the trip from louisiana to atlanta to pick up my ranger. she is a 2004 fx4 level 2 with the 5 speed manual trans. so far i love it but i must say i am a toyota guy and would be still driving my 1998 4x4 trd tacoma if it werent for people speeding and me being impatient.

the ranger is red and she has about 57,000 miles on it now we picked it up for 10,250 i think its a preety good deal. especially since it has a spray in bed liner and a low profile black toolbox.

power seems about the same if not more than the 3.4 that i had in the taco and if i threw some mud terrains on it like i had i think it is just as capable.

i will get some pics up as soon as i take them

thanks! anything i should be on the look out for would be helpfull as soon as i find some cash im gona go put some royal purple in the motor and tranny

Welcome!
If you run the wheel spacers, you're gonna need longer wheel studs, or I think someone on here mentioned extended reach lug nuts. Maybe he can post the link up again.
