Default New to the Ranger encounter....

Good day all, my name is Grant and just drove a new Ranger home off the lot......ya........I bought new.
4.0L SOHC V6, 5-spd auto. It's the FX4 Off Road package.
It's been a few years of scrimping (single vehicle family, sending kids through college, paying down the house, etc) and it's all paid off and it was time to spend a little and get a second vehicle. I knew it was going to be a smaller truck (not a big one) and the Ranger has stood the test of time.
I'm looking forward to driving it and connecting up with my buddies that enjoy the off road stuff (we have some awesome areas here in the BC southern interior).
I am however, a complete beginner at this kind of stuff and will be reviewing the various Ranger Forums to learn as I go and ask questions when needed.
No mods yet, but enjoying what I have seen so far and know the opportunities (and the $$$ costs $$$) are pretty much unlimited.

Safe truckin all

Welcome, Its so wierd seeing a Sport as an FX4. The model you have ussed to be the sport package as the discontinued the Fx4 (in the states at least). So in canada, what do they do, make the FX4 package an add on to the sport package. I see ya'll still get Alcoas too!
