Default New 03 Owner in NJ

Hey all, just bought my first Ranger, a 2003 4.0 6 Cyl. Fx4 with only 56000 miles on it. My father actually picked it up for me in Vermont, so, as of now, all I have to go by are the craigslist pictures and his description. I'm bought this truck for my commute to work each day, as i am also buying a 2015 Subaru Sti. For now I plan on keeping it mostly stock, except for a chip/tune for better economy, window tint for privacy, and maybe a new sound system. However first things first, it needs an extreme detail with some paint correction. I just bought a ****ton of detailing equipment, and will be making a thread in the car care section to "chronicle" my progress. I know i will receive a wealth of information from this forum, but i would also like to use it to keep a log of all the stuff I do to it. Not really a "build thread" because I don't plan on building it but similar. Where would you recommend i do this? Any opinions on the above are greatly appreciated and welcomed. Thanks for the time.

Also, i may have a slight rust problem under the truck and rocker panels, any advice on how to take care of this easily so it won't spread or get worse? Wire Brush and Primer?

Holden, Welcome to FRF from Toms River. I would still do a "build thread" in the project logs section.
