Default New, from Washington State

Hey fellas, I've been looking at fixing up my 2000 Ranger and browsing through various sites, and happened on this one. I'm completely new to fixing up a vehicle, and hope to gain some insight, tips, and maybe a few laughs along the way.

Thnx!

Hoping to make it much better than stock!

Yeah, I do security work for Sound Transit. The job sucks, although it's the easiest money I've ever made, but, it's bought me a house. Can't complain about that. My schedule for now is pretty set.

Heh, I keep finding stuff to add into my General Topics discussion for me truck. Think I'll leave it, finally, where it's at.

Know of any DIY shops around? I know there used to be one on Ft. Lewis, but, IDK if there are any others...


Thnx

Not yet, but I will probably monday or tuesday. Right now it's all stock, except for some new AT tires. But, it would be good to get some pics of her current state before I start rebuilding her
