Back in a Ranger again... :-)

Well... I loved my F-150, but after some finacial issues in my life and a few changes in my driving distance every day I sold my F-150 on craigslist, made about $1000 on it. Searched around for a few days and drove a few different vehicles and really liked the duratec reg cab rangers so I drove a few hours and found this 2007 Ranger, XLT 2.3, Auto and just fell in love with it. Only has 19k miles, one owner, mint. I absolutely love it and i cut my payment by 60% and insurance by $20 a month and twice the gas mileage. Anyway, glad to be back. Ya'lls trucks are looking great!

Plans:
DJM 4/5 drop
Black 18in boss 304's or fr500s
tint
slowly black it out
drive it... hopefully longer than 3 months. lol

Wow, really caught me by surprise there Ben, I was really expecting a 4X4 ex cab..lol. But I understand the gas mileage thing. Sometimes wish I has my 2.3 back. Nice looking truck. My vote is the FR500s (love those wheels). And I agree on the black out thing!

Maybe it's just me, but this is just like Allies truck. LOL You guys should've just keep it instead. Good looking truck though. I'm thinking all the plans you have plus a little turbo action. Plus paint that lower valance.

I think a nice black tonneau cover would complete the look!

EDIT: Does it already have one? Hard to tell since you took the pics low.

I love the duratec 2.3. It runs good for a 4cyl auto.

It has a Undercover textured black hard tonneau cover. I love it. Never had one before.
