She lives!! First start up of 2011

Today I decided since the weather is warmer out that I would attempt to start my ranger thats sat with a dead battery since the fall. after some time with the battery booster she fired right up! It was nice to hear the old girl run again, cant wait for the snow to be gone so I can drive her!

purrs like a kitten! still need to get a new battery before spring though.

I'm mainly just looking for a vermillion red truck haha most of them are stepsides so i have a low chance of finding a styleside. I'm starting to like oxford white edges though.
....I will definitely be getting a ranger I ordered a body lift already and i don't even have a truck but shhhh lol

Sounds and looks good man. I hear ya about seeing one of your rigs buried in the snow when there's no access to a garage. My Bronco was buried in the snow for 2 weeks or so while we were going threw a 0 to -25 cold spell.
