Default My new 05 xlt

I would like to start this off by apologizing. The truth is, I have had this truck an entire month and haven't bothered taking any pictures of it until now! How selfish of me. I know that the only way I can wash away the shame I feel in my heart is by coming clean and sharing pics.

I work as a mechanic at a used car dealership. Every once in a while, we get a trade in that really grabs my attention. When I saw this truck, I knew it was too good to pass on.
That is an 05 XLT with 35k miles on it. Yeah, I had to have it.
I see no shortage of Rangers in my neck of the woods, what I don't see all that often are ones that aren't beaten half to death and run into the ground.
Pretty basic little truck, 4cyl, 5spd, manual everything, but man, is it clean. These pics are after its first trip to the car wash under my care.
Anyway, I knew that I had to get some shots of it today while it isn't all grimy and dirty under that stupid pine tree.

Thank you! I don't have anything crazy planned for it right now. I do have a set of explorer wheels in the back yard that may find there way on there when it needs tires, and I have toyed with the idea of throwing a small lift at it, but I haven't really made up my mind

06+ conversion, mirrors, tails, and emblems perhaps? That's a sweet truck btw.. Your radio is a bit more classier than mine though. It has a cd player spot

Wouldn't mind the 06 mirrors, but I kind of like the older style small emblems. I definitely wouldn't mind adding cruise control at some point
