Bye Bye Ranger hello new truck!

Well, I sold the ranger today. Long story short, traded my 89 ranger for a 98, sold the 98 for 2000$ and bought a Chevrolet 1500.

I love it so far, it has it's bugs and I'll need to fix it up but for now I'm in love. :D





Lifted 2" sitting on 35"s, 5.7L v8, 4x4 :D

Looks great! Hard to find a good 90s Chevy without serious rust damage.

It's pretty awesome, couple things wrong with it though. Posi rear end is seized up, and we think it might be stuck in 4x4. Otherwise i like it.

That or absolutely no clear coat left.

That thing looks pretty nice. If you maintain that, it should rust apart before it stops running, those things are tanks.

The engines last forever. The trucks themselves and everything, not so much.

Thanks for saying good bye.

Now that you have the Chebby I guess you won’t be needing this site any longer.

Enjoy the new truck, even if it isn’t a FORD !

Nice truck, bud! My only suggestion is to get rid of those bro tail lights. I don't know why, but I have never liked custom tail lights on any of the Chevy's/GMC's.

Nice to know I'm not the only Heavy Chevy owner here anymore, lol.

They're real cool looking. Mine's acting up a bit, but hoping after a nice tune-up it'll clear itself up. Got a small coolant leak somewhere, so I'll have to figure that out.

Also does NOT like starting in the morning, but if you can roll for a little bit and after sitting for like 10 mins she'll start. WTF? Bad connection somewhere. xD
