I didn't have to do that, I just had to stand on my head in the drivers seat, look up, and there it was.

Bought a 94 ranger xlt, 2wd 5 speed standard with the 2.3 liter 4 cylinder motor in it for $150. The transmission is bad, would only go in 4th. I still drove it up on the trailer to take it home though. Haha. Picked up a low mile tranny for $50 believe it or not. Ordered a clutch kit w/ new slave on rockauto.com for $75, and bought a shifter repair kit from Autozone to tighten up the shifter that's loose...due to bad bushing.

Got a new resistor pack for my blower motor... leaving Autozone my busted-for-a-month one worked flawlessly for the whole drive home.

Well it's been a long time since I have been on here and boy has stuff happened. Looks like the last thing I posted about here was back when I bought that offroad bumper. Long story short I spent a couple months messing with it, but eventually gave up because the end of my frame was ****eyed from the previous owner's wreck. So I sold that over the summer.

Not too much changed aesthetically other than taking the lightbar on and off a few times. I was about to invest in projector retrofits and roofracks... but things changed.

On December 13th, I was driving home from college for winter break. I fell asleep driving down interstate 26, roads were also wet. I woke up as I was sliding off the left side of the highway into the median, there were trees there so I punched it so I could try to pull back up the steep embankment. I somehow managed to pull back up onto the highway, but at this point I was still going around 70 mph. I slid over to the right side of the road (no other cars close to me thankfully) and started to slide off. I tried to save it again but the right rear tire caught and I flipped into the air. Before I could spin one full rotation I collided with a tree midair, bottom of the truck first, right where the cab and bed meet. The truck completely wrapped around the tree, the front and rear tires were within a foot of eachother. The truck slide down the tree to the ground. We estimate I hit the tree midair at about 60 mph. It hurt like hell. I had all my possessions with me because winter break, it was all thrown around my cab. My glasses were thrown off my face so I was completely blind. My toolbox ripped out of my bed and opened, throwing that stuff 20+ feet ahead of me through the trees.

Yada yada yada, I climbed out with nothing but a sore back. Got carted off to the local hospital and got some painkillers but was completely fine. Truck obviously got totalled as I broke it in half. It actually took insurance like a month and half to pay me for the loss, and I'm currently used car shopping while attempting to survive in college.

Another ranger/truck has been pretty much ruled out by my parents and the fact I can't find a decent one in the area. Currently investigating Subarus.

Oh, here is a picture:

Well, it's all cosmetic thankfully. The front valence is destroyed, and there's a piece out of my grille shell
