Default Love Rangers, Had to buy my own

Hey everyone,
Name's Dana Howes. I'm 22, at college in Boston, but I am originally from the small town of Uxbridge, MA. I've always wanted a truck, and the Ford Ranger is the perfect combination of truck and commuter vehicle for me. The one I found suits me well, even managed to find one in my favorite color!

This is my first experience with a forum, and from what I have seen, it seems pretty darn helpful. For a while I was sharing a 2000 Ranger XLT 3.0 2WD with my father. I fell in love with it and decided to buy my own. I was able to find the same year and xlt package, but I got 4WD and a 5 speed manual. Got a couple pictures to check out.

I'm looking forward to finding out some good ways to do some exterior mods to really make this truck my own. I attached some pics, any suggestions are welcome, and I'll be searching around the other forums for ideas and insight.
