"You're my boy, Blue!"

Hey guys, my name's Jared. I'm relatively new to the forum and thought it was time to start being a little more active with it. Found the dream Ranger a few months back (stock 07 Fx4 Level ll w/manual tranny, 65K hwy miles) and decided to upgrade from my '06, 4liter, 2wd ranger. I've been around on here and been reading since I bought the new ranger (affectionately referred to as "Blue"). I'm a 22 yrs old and work for a farm near TriCities, Wash. So hopfully there's a couple of you PNW guys around to bounce ideas off of. I'll get some pictures up sometime this week and hopefully be a little more active with this thing

car forum experience: Rx7club, not as active anymore as I'd like to be... blame it on the alcohol and school

Current Vehicles:
Blue 2007 Ford Ranger Fx4 Level II
White 1972 Mazda Rx2 SuperDeluxe Coupe (stereotypically not currently-running project, lol)

Previous Vehicles:
Red 2006 Ford Ranger XLT Prerunner
Black 1995 Ford Explorer Limited

things ive already done to it since the first picture in september. bought a toolbox, tinted the front windows, put in sonar headlights, which i kinda regret because they arent very bright but i think im going to convert them to HID's or paint the inside of my old headlights...9 times outta 10 im a "function over form" type person...but i really wanted headlights with a black background

well much of the mazda's interior is pretty much acceptable to where i can drive it and feel comfortable driving another person or two in it. the plan after i completely finish my degree in another year or two, to have the bodywork done the right way and painted like a pearl white. then a ported 13b rotary like i had in it when i was in highschool

immediate plans for my truck.

have my doubledin headunit and backup camera installed for me. new tires, possibly wider wheels. maybe a new shift ****, the stock one is kind of cheesy. in the next couple months start looking into 2.5 inch exhausts. and eventually level it...ive been contemplating how i want to do that
