Life after the Ranger (continued)

Got some used wheels today from a guy on the ColoradoForums.com.

They look nice, even though you really cant see them in the pics very well. Gunna get more this weekend after I wash it up.

Very nice black and yellow always look good together. Now all you need to do is get it tinted, and install black lights.

Looks nice, did you get hit from behind? The rear bumper looks twisted on the drivers side.

Nah, just the way the rear of the truck curves. Makes the bumper look like that. I have noticed it before and checked it out, but I am the only one to have ever driven my truck and I have never been hit or hit anything.

Looks good. Just curious how do you like the colorado compared to the ranger? I have considered one due to the fact I have access to the family plan.

They are pretty nice. Not really that bad of a truck. Its really hard for me to say because I am getting tired of trucks in general.

Tried selling it about 2 months ago for a GTO, but the car was sold before I could sell the truck.

If I were able to get my Ranger back how it was exactly, I would take it ina heart beat, but not because this truck sucks or because Ford is 'better', but because I just had alot more fun fixing that one up.

the 2007 Colorado's are being bumped up to a 3.7 liter with 245/245. Its a huge increase from the 2004-2006 3.5 liter 220/225. The motor I have now is pretty powerful. I am actually kind of curious as to how the new engines will run.

On ColoradoForums.com, there are alot of guys that have been puling large loads and their boats with no problem.

As for gas mileage, I am really not the person to ask seeing as a tank of gas can last me a month. I barely drive. But from the times i did drive highway, its about equal to my Ranger, maybe drinks a tad more.

not usually a fan of yellow, but that color in combination with those wheels looks sharp!
