Default Hey from Canada!

Hey everyone! Little bit about me: I'm 24, live in northern BC, work for the railway, and love anything outdoors. Honestly would have preferred a bigger truck but the funds weren't there and I really don't need one. The Ranger is more than enough for me... can fit the dog in the back, moose in the box and tow the quad when needed!
So I've had my truck almost 2 years now, bought it brand new, and I love it. Only issue I've had so far is the tranny basically blowing apart at 25000 km, covered by warranty thankfully! I've never driven it (too) hard and the dealership won't tell me what went wrong... I have a feeling when they serviced it the week before they forgot to refill the fluid.
Looking forward to doing more and more to the truck as I get the cash, and figured this is the perfect place for ideas and help! Next on my list is rims and tires, possibly a body lift for now, suspension lift further down on the list.

Thanks everyone! Yeah the dealership tried to give me some story about normal wear and tear that I called complete BS on.
I have a few pics started in an album, more to come! I usually get caught up in the moment and tend to forget I'm packing a camera with me!

Ouch, Canadiangurl, tranny at 25K ! Not what we want to hear. Don't go back to those guys unless it's more warranty.
