woohoo fresh start!

so ive been on the hunt for the perfect vehicle for a while....for a while i wanted a jeep, then an eclipse (i dunno what got into me), then a lil b2000...and ended up with this!

1998 b2500, its a single cab short bed, 108k miles, 5speed 4cyl. and the great part is that alot of the miles are from being towed because as you will see in one of the pics, it has a tow bar welded to the front of the truck! lol
any ways, it was a great deal and is in great condition....and for the first vehicle i personally have ever purchased, i think i did alright.

plans are to learn to fully drive stick first lol, then theres some fender damage that it came with that i have to get fixed, then its onto cleaning it up and eventually putting a 4/5 drop on it. Its alot peppier than my truck thats for sure! On with the pics

im never sellin my ranger...or atleast im keepin it for as long as possible.
the ranger is paid for (the vehicle itself and insurance) by my parents....yes bag on me all you want but i still paid for all the mods...and all the gas it eats; and the mazda is what im payin for now...in terms for absolutely everything.

so i guess you could say both are my DD's

btw, im a 17 year old still in high school, so i think im doin alright...gotta love having a job and nothing to really pay for...well until now.
