Default New guy here.

Hello all.

My name is Ricky, I'm 34 yrs. old. I work in maintenance at a stainless steel fabrication shop, and I've owned my 2nd '94 Ranger for about only 3 months.

My truck is a short bed, short cab, 2.3L 5-speed 2WD with 235/75R15's and 3.45 gears.

I haven't done much to the truck mechanically. The previous owner was a backyard mechanic and had just put a stage 3 clutch and ball joints in it.

My mods have been mostly visual. OD green plasti-dip, homemade vinyl topper and wheel covers. The front end was made from scrap thrown away at work.

As far as what I'd like to do to it in the future... 4.10 gears. With the 3.45's and the bigger tires, you can't even use 5th gear
