Hey everyone,


Bought my first ranger a couple months ago. Used with 155k on the odo. it's a '98 ranger XLT extend cab sitting on 31x10.50x15's. other then that, stock. Looks like it has a small lift from the factory, but never dove into it to see for sure. Anyway, I'll be in and out of here from time to time.

My neighbor said there is a place in PA about 3 hours from here.. I looked at him and asked if he was towing my truck out there for me.. lol! I know with my luck, if I drove out that far something would break. I have a rock quarry near me. so I'm going to see if I can get into that..

Just be careful in those quarries man. There is one in the town i work in and a kid went four wheeling in it, ended up going over a 100 foot cliff and died. They have no markers for the cliffs or anything in those quarries. Also take a look at some state game lands, they have some driveable trails that get pretty messy

Well you could come to PA too, It's only like 90 minutes from where you are. But in NJ check out states parks in Allamuchy, and Hope, they have some trails you may be able to drive. I know there are some in the town I work in but we have been popping people for trespassing there so I can't recommend that for ya!

Couple quick pics.

My other car is a 2010 Fusion sport. I also have a mustang that I'm building but that is at my fathers.

I just actually fixed the ranger, turns out it still had the original plugs and the spark was blowing out under load.. Now it's driving good again.
