Bought another Ranger.

It's been a while but I thought I would stop in since I just bought another Ranger. So I sold my '97 and bought this '98 4.0 4x4. I had a lot of work into my '97 but the miles were racking up on it and it was time for something with a little more room. Here is one last pic of my '97.........................







And here is a crappy cell phone pic of my new truck after I washed, buffed, and waxed it last weekend. I'll get some good ones up soon.



Overall, I'm happy with my decision. I put my 31x10.5's from my green truck on this one and added a Tonneau Cover. I'm keeping this truck stock though and not wheeling it, so I can spend more money on the Chevelle.

Never seen that color on a ranger before. Doesn't look too bad.

That is what I thought at first but then I thought that someone had painted it.

Thanks,so did I. But it was time for something a little newer and nicer, little things were starting to bug me with it and I'm a full time student with no place to tinker with things to keep it running right unless I drive home (which I had to do once with it stuck in first gear and no reverse). It had appx. 170k on it. It was a basket case when I bought it and I did a ton of body work to it and repainted it, added the small lift and plated and boxed in the rear part of the frame because it was starting to rot. I will miss that truck though, but this one is nicer, less miles, more room, better shape body wise.


Thanks for the compliments guys.

I fixed all the problems that it had when I bought it, but I was not easy on that truck. Weekly wheelin' trips were taking its toll.
