Default "New" Ford Ranger owner

Hey everyone, checking in from Northern West Virginia. A little info, I'm new to the forum (obviously lol) and as of the beginning of this week, the new owner of an older Ranger. Bought a '95 Ranger XLT ext. cab, 4.0 4x4 off my old man. Was in the market for a while now, for a truck to replace my over-worked '00 Dodge dakota 4x4 when my dad offered to sell me his ranger. It was a pretty easy decision to buy it as opposed to a newer F-150 like I was thinking considering this truck is in great shape (aside from one 'minor' issue which I'll get into in another thread), and only has 73,000 miles on it and I got it for next to nothing.

Anyhow, just thought I'd welcome myself aboard your forum and look forward to being here.

Thanks mudbogger! Aside from my dad owning an '88 Ranger back when I was younger, I'm trying to read up as much as possible on this truck to learn the in's-and-out's of them. I'm kinda anal when it comes to knowing my vehicles especially the one's I own lol

That's good you WANT to learn. Helping people with their ford ranger is what this forum is all about. Have fun and good luck with your truck .
