Default No more Ranger for me.

Well saturday was a sad day. I sold my ranger in the morning, and the same day I got on craigslist and went and bought a 1998 Silverado 4x4. It hasnt quite hit me yet that my ranger is gone, im just too excited for the new chevy. This thing is super clean, and I practicaly stole the thing, I paid the same for the chevy that I sold my ranger for. So I hate to betray everyone on here, but I went chevy. It has loads more power, and more room. I really like it, but I did LOVE my ranger. Here are some pictures of the new rig.

P.S. I already cranked the torsion bars about halfway

NOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Your Ranger was sweet, but if i had to buy a chevy, it'd be that generation. Good luck with it man! At least you didn't buy a Dodge!

I have always liked that gen of Chevy too, that said I've had many friends over the years that had that gen Chevy/ GMC and all had many problems. I hope for your sake this one is reliable for you, there has got to be a reason the price was so low and that would scare me on an older vehicle.
