Default First Truck, first Ford

So I've taken the plunge into the truck world last week. To be completely honest I also re-entered the world of 4 wheels! Yay me! I've spent the last 3 years in Glendale, Az living the 2 wheel life. Unfortunately I'm back to living in Ohio where well winter happens. So the bikes going in the garage and out comes my new DD. It's pretty much the definition of winter beater. Scored the girl (and 4 barely used tires) for 900 from a local small town dealer. They rebuilt the engine and front end 13k ago. Sitting at 148k looking like she's gone 10 times that (but the frame is solid!!!). More on the ugly duckling later. I'm 31, work at a major chain grocery store, love fishing, motorcycles, gaming and long walks on the beach. Lol

She's a 2000 2d standard package, automatic, 2wd with the 3.0l engine.
Mods, I bought one of those nifty aux cassette thingys to listen to my tunes, other then that she's stock (apart from the rust).
Do I plan on any? Yes but first I need to address the hollow muffler and this recently noticed odd single clank sound I keep getting but this isn't the thread to post any thing on that. Oh I do plan on hitting the rims with rust reformer and spray paint next day off.

Can't wait to dig into the forum and get to talking to some people!

Will add a pic as soon as I figure it out!
