Default Proud owner of a Ford Truck

Hi, I'm Joe, a 32yo engineer in aviation, and I just bought my first Ford truck, a 1999 Ranger XLT 4x2. I'm proud to own a Ford truck as They really are built Ford Tough. Found a great truck in great condition, only 75k miles. Don't plan on any major upgrades, just a Herculiner and bed cover, and of course a sweet modern stereo.

So obviously I'm new here, happy to be part of the forum, and look forward to learning from you all.

Thanks.

Here it is:

I am an entry level engineer working for a company that makes aircraft engines. I have a lot of loans to pay back, so not going to spend the big bucks on any one project, but will be interested in a few small things here and there. First priority (after the stereo, bed liner, and cover, LOL) is new drums and shoes and supporting hardware.
