So I picked up the Ranger yesterday. I LOVE it. Drives so nice. I had some heavy bags of leaves that I tossed in the back and it didn't drop the suspension noticeably at all, when on my 86 it went down ALOT.

The clutch seems to clunk a bit when I don't feather it out super easy, it has a month old clutch...Is this something new clutches do? My brothers brand new 08 dodge does the same thing.

I gotta swap out the radio because it's just a tape player and I only have one tape (the lion king soundtrack!)

I was also trying to figure out how to open up the centre armrest top to access the interior compartment and I ended up pulling on it and breaking the tab that holds it closed...Whoops!

anyways, I took some photos but they're not on this computer...will post soon!

It actually has 210,000 KM on it, which is like 130000 miles.
