She's back

I doubt that many of you will remember my 92 3.0 with the wooden flatbed here. About 2 years ago I was playing in some puddles, hit one too fast, and hydrolocked it. Since my grandfather was in control of my money at the time, he decided we should just sell it and pick up a new truck. Well... last Thursday I ended up rear ending someone in the new truck, and it was totalled. So I called the people I sold my Ranger to, and asked to buy it back. They had long since had the engine repaired, and put about 8,000 miles on it (102,000 miles now) and it runs like never before. Getting roughly 20 mpg in town(Not grandma driving), about 27 or so on the highway. I've never really heard of the 3.0 doing so well in mileage, so that's just another plus to finally getting her back. Sorry for the wall of text, and here's 3 newer photos and one old one, I'll try to get some better ones once the weather has cleared up here.

Would have been fun to keep it bedless as it looked like a mini semi, but I gotta haul stuff quite often.

I couldn't believe they sold it back either. Apparently they wanted to get a new car anyway, and asked for 1500. Considering the engine is pretty much brand new and the truck itself is only at 102,000 miles, I think that was a pretty good price. Plus sentimental value, I love this truck.
