Default Looking Forward to this.

Hello Everyone
I am John, I live in Nampa Idaho but work in Boise at one of the hospitals as an MRI technologist. I have changed careers later in life. My first career was in construction "Drywall installer". I come from a small town in Utah called "Lynndyl".

I have been truck less for about a year. i recently decided to purchase a Ranger, so after some research, i decided on a 4.0L, 4 x 4, manual 5-speed with the extend cab. After several months of looking I found one locally for a grand. It's what you would expect for a grand it runs and drives with very little rust. However it has had major front end repairs done. Both frame rails have been replaced forward of the front diff, as well as front clip and drivers inner fender well replaced. Lots to do on it just to have a dependable hauler.

Got it home and immediately dropped a socket while changing the rear license plate dam!
4X4, 4.0L
