I'm happy everything worked out better than you hoped. Best of luck with the new truck whenever it comes.

My trucks isn't just my first truck or Ranger, but first vehicle. I ditched it on New Years and have since put about $3000 in parts into fixing it. I know what its like to cry over a vehicle. No shame there bro.

I hated to look at those pics man. I know what you mean about it being like losing a close friend. I had a 2000 that my dad had helped me get 2 months before he died destroyed when a guy ran a red light right out in front of me. I had been to so many places and done so much with that truck that it really hurt to lose it but I did get my current truck out of the mess. Glad your both ok and cant wait to see what you get next!

yea she was, hence my quote. is it mentally bad to name your truck after an imaginary girl of your dreams that you pretend you are dating? hmmm...

it doesn't want to be crushed.....i tried taking it to the yard a week ago and while trying to get it on the trailer, my chain hoist broke and the brakes on my dads jeep went out

the girlfriend and i have healed up fine...i got a few scars on my shin and shes got a little dink on her head.


i've slowly been building on my daily driver but i'm keeping an eye out on another project
