Hi! I'm Jim. And I recently bought my 3rd Ford-built small truck.

Started with a basic white 1997 Mazda B2300, which I loved (having never owned a truck before), despite it's shortcomings (small engine, no storage space), but I was hooked. Drove it for several years until the engine died.

A year ago, I upgraded to a silver 2001 Ranger XLT 4L V6 4x4 4-Dr. Extended Cab Stepside. It definitely solved the power and storage issues! Unfortunately, about 2 months ago, somebody decided that they wanted to occupy the lane that I was driving in, and totalled my Ranger!

So, last week, I upgraded again to a white 2011 Ranger XLT 4L V6 4x4 4-Dr. Extended Cab. I hope to keep this one a good while longer!



I've already found a simple solution on this forum to a nagging issue I've had with both of the Fords... Floppy center A/C vents (thanks to member Mike in Bama!)
