Smile First Ranger, First Post

Hey all,

My name is Adam, I'm from Michigan and 20 years old. I've been a lurker on this forum for a while while searching for a ranger to buy. I figured I'd finally register, since I finally bought a ranger! Unfortunately the transmission on my previous car went out a few weeks ago. Fortunately however, my uncle just so happened to be selling his ranger, as he was upgrading to a new F-150. I feel like I got a great deal on the truck at $3,500. It's an older 1997, but also the desirable extended cab 4.0 with 4x4 and has WARN manual locking hubs already installed. Also my uncle was the original owner, so I have the entire history of paperwork on the truck's maintenance since it left the dealership.

She got her first wash and wax this pat weekend in my driveway.







Hope you enjoyed the few photos.

I'm not positive what mods I'm planning so far. It's already sitting on stiffer shocks and 31x10.50x15 tires. I'm pretty sure I'll be painting the grill and fender flares to match the body color, and redoing the strip of bed liner along the bottom of the body. After that I haven't decided. At some point I'd like to get some new gloss black wheels, as the factory wheels are pitted to hell. I'll probably keep the chrome center caps though.

I look forward to using this forum for ideas and conversation!

Cheers!

Thanks guys! It's unbelievably clean for a 1997. My uncle took impeccable care of it.
