Default Gov Auction Truck

I just bought a 2003 White Ford Ranger XLT with the 3.0 and RWD. I bought it in a government vehicle auction with only 49,000 miles on it for $2,100. I took a big risk because I never looked at it in person so all I knew was that it had some dents and dings from normal GOV use. I was relieved to find out the engine runs smooth, AC works, and there were no surprises other than the extremely poor condition of the steering wheel. I love my new little truck.

Also, I just realized I've had more Rangers in my life than any other model even though this is my first. Two close friends have had them, one in high school and one years later. Also, my grandparents have one and my parents had one they gave to my step niece (?). Now I have one of my own
