Wranglers are cool and all, but I sold two of em just to get another ranger. lol You never know just how much you'll miss that truck until your trying to find a way to haul stuff in a jeep wrangler. All I can say is get use to using a trailor pretty much all the time. Also, I had one trailor that my ranger pulled fine with a load on it, but when I hooked it to the back of my wrangler empty it squatted the fenders down on top of the tires. Empty! Best idea is to own both. Keep the ranger and buy an older wrangler that you can get straight out that way you can have fun in the jeep, but not the headaches of no way to haul stuff. Just my .02 ymmv

I'll just be starting on my ranger, but, looking at the guides posted here, looks like I'll be starting with tweaking the t-bars and alignment, OHC, carpet/changing interior, installing power windows, and likely will be all for now. Whatever I can find that's going to be simple and less expensive. I'll be saving the next few months for lift kit, new wheels and tires, and other ends pertaining to that.
