Out & About

Well, I almost have my truck paid off and I'll be focusing on getting a lot of needed maintenance and wanted mods done during this winter before I go to college in the Spring. I wanted to get a couple of pictures of my truck in it's current state, which is essentially stock. I haven't really posted very much about my truck here, so for those who care, here's my truck...












Some sick stock flecks













And my favorite picture, which turned out quite nice for a $100 point and shoot;

Thanks! I can't wait to finally start modding it. I ordered some matte black vinyl for my wheels, so we'll see how that turns out.

lol, I think of that every time I see it. I've been thinking of taking it off, but it does deflect alot of crap from the hood. Especially those damn love bugs that I hate so much.

Dunlop Grandtrek AT20, 245/75/16. They do decently on sand, but the smallest amount of mud and the tread just becomes useless. It's an on-road tire though so I didn't expect much haha, and I got them for a $100 each so for the price I can't complain.

Really I'm hopeing to just get a lot of stuff fixed. It looks nice and shiny because I wash and wax it so often, but there are several rust spots on the bed/tailgate, and there's a whole lot of minor dings in the paint that drive me crazy.

After that a bunch of small things like lights under the bed rails, bedliner, reupholster the seats, front/rear hitch, tint my windows, etc. I would love to lift it but I keep thinking about how much more helpful that money would be in my bank when I'm running low at college.

Cool

Great truck, and great pictures, Naughton. Those $100 digitals can get some good shots, I have a digital SLR, but many times end up taking the cheap camera and am usually pleased enough with the results.
Wait on the lift kit....if at all. Get that college degree under your belt and you can enjoy all those kinds of goodies later, delayed gratification.

I keep trying to tell myself that, but I've wanted a lifted Ranger since before I could even drive! haha. I'll have paid the entire truck off by myself before I start college, so that'll be a huge burden lifted off my shoulders. A friend of mine has some 33's that I could get for cheap, so that with a BL and I could be lifted for about $300. I'm still throwing the idea around.
