Smile Hello All

Hi everyone, I'm Brandon. I live in Oregon and I recently got a 2004 Ranger XLT with about 107,XXX miles on it. 5 speed manual and 4x4. I am looking to upgrade it. I have lots of questions, as I have never owned a Ranger. I am normally a diesel guy, but I decided to purchase a Ranger. I am 19 years old and i am a Direct Support Professional. Im from a little eastern Oregonian town, but moved with my wife to the Wilamette Valley here in Oregon near the beautiful campus of OSU. I love to hunt, fish and shoot guns. I love working/upgrading my vehicles and having fun with them. I am glad to be a part of this forum. Thank you!

Hey Brandon,

Welcome to FRF, It sounds like you got yourself a nice Ford Ranger there. Those Rangers with the manual transmissions are hard to come by around here.

I do like my Ranger, thanks. I have notices a few quirks/things about my pickup, like it has been in a rollover and the repaint job on the right front fender ran like someone dumped a gallon of paint down the side of it (not really that bad,but..). I appreciate the welcomes!

Well, I hate to hear about your Ranger being rolled, but it's very very common for these
4X4 Ford Rangers to be rolled. It's mainly because a lot of 16 y/o boys get them as a first vehicle and they don't know how to drive and they run them off the road while they're texting and driving.
