Default Hinckley Ohio new guy

Well, to start, I wanted a new Tacoma, but the prices have gotten out of control for a pick up truck!
I bought my first Ranger Monday. It has to be picked up from out of state as I wanted a specific color (white) and the XLT package. I hope to have it this week end.
Priced right. When I test drove a Ranger, it felt like my first Tacoma back in 1989. Simple, functional, comfortable.
I have no plans for any mods yet. When the tires wear out I will look into bigger tires.
I plan to have it rust proofed and put a bed liner in it right away.I am trading in a diesel Jeep Liberty. I LOVE the diesel but not the Jeep. Plus I want a truck again. Nice to be able to throw things in the back.
I was a heavy truck, heavy collision tech for almost 30 years. I now am an insurance adjuster for an insurance company thet writes commercial truck (largest in the country).
I look forward to many years of trouble free use from the new Ford.
I had an F150 back in 1979 and I remember it to be very dependable.

Welcome. 1979 F150. I bet I know exactly what you're talking about. My granddad ran one for a super long time time, and my uncle ran it too until I think I was bout in high school. That was beast! It was two toned red and whilte.

Thanks for the welcome.
I forgot to mention the Ranger is 4X4.
I'm looking forward to learning from you folks.
From what I've read so far, there isn't any real known "issues" with these trucks. Seem to be pretty dependable.
