Thumbs up Hello, I will be known as Rob D.

New to this forum. I purchased my first Ranger in December of 2009.
I drove a 84 Bronco II for over 18 year before selling it to my oldest for $1.00. I replaced it with my new find, a 99 ranger with only 17k miles. It still has the original Firestone tires on it! It was in covered storage by a family who couldn't part with it. It was a special order XLT with 4.0l engine and the optional 5 speed Automatic. It had a matching tonneau cover. I added a k&n filter, Fiberglass mustang hood scoop, rear spoiler, HP front and rear sway bars, and driving lights. I also had a magnaflow dual exhaust installed with three inch stainless tailpipes. The exhaust sound is awesome! I plan to install a BK throttle body and change the rear ratio from a 3.55 to a 4.10. I am a military commander with 38 years of service. I plan to retire in two more years. This ranger is my toy I plan to take into retirement. It runs very strong for a V6! It is hard on rear tires! I will post pictures very soon. It looks like it came off the showroom floor yesterday! Glad to have found this web site!

Welcome, I look forward to the pics. I, too, drove a BII before giving it to the kid.
