Default Vermont Ranger Owner

Hey guys,

My name is Nick. I'm 22, I'm from Colchester, VT. I'm an IT guy and a first-time Ranger owner and new member to FRF. I've been reading the forums since before I bought the truck, so I already feel like I belong here! I decided to finally make an account and start being active. I've got some great ideas for my Ranger and I hope to have it for years to come. Enough about me, on to my truck!

I have a 2009 Sport (what makes it Sport vs XL or XLT?), regular cab 2.3L RWD. It's got fender flares so it looks cool (at least, everyone comments on them looking awesome, and I agree). I put a topper on it that I bought cheap and fixed up and painted to match. Everything is stock except the wheels, but that's only because I have snow tires on and I bought a set of rims so I could just swap them out easily. Studded Firestone Winterforce - good tires, they make it a beast in the snow, especially for a RWD.

I nicknamed him "Q" (and yes, it's a him. 5 months of driving have determined a definite male personality. We're buds :-P ). I also decided to use that as my FRF username. There is a story to the name, though. My friends and I were having a James Bond marathon night and since I've had a habit of carrying one of everything in my truck, one of my friends said I was like Q, always ready with a gadget. The name stuck, so now my truck is Q. I like it.

I'm looking forward to the forums. I'd love to do all my own maintenance and modding. I'm still on the learning curve for car stuff, but I learn well and you all seem like good, respectful, knowledgeable and helpful people, which I try for myself. Like I said, I've got plenty of mods and gadgetry planned for Q, so hopefully I can contribute to the cool stuff on here.

I swear, only my intro post will be this long. :-P

Nick (and Q)

Holy cow, that looks so weird! Must be because I copy/pasted from MS Word. Should be fixed now. Thanks for the welcome!
