Default Howz it going, eh?

Hi,

I've finally got around to joining this forum...

I've got a metallic grey 2006 Ranger Sport that I bought "almost new" in 2007. I had needed something to replace my recently deceased (and still missed) '92 Mazda B2200. The Ranger was in pristine shape and the price (while more than I had budgeted for a Mazda replacement) was too good to walk away from. I've put about 40000 relatively trouble-free kilometres on it since then and I have never regretted buying it. In fact, based on the positive experience of this first ownership of a Ford vehicle, I have recently replaced my '00 Malibu with a brand new '10 Fusion SEL... I guess that I'm a Ford guy now.

Truck specs:
2006 Ranger Sport
Metalic grey
5 speed manual, 3.0L V6

Added:
tow hitch (Resse)
running boards (factory)
fibreglass cap (transferred from the Mazda)
Load-levelling rear shocks (Monroe)
steel rims w/ snow tires (winter only)

Non-Routine Maintenance:
front brakes (once)
Serpentine belt (once)
Idle Air Control valve (should've just cleaned the old one...)
Ignition switch (removed, cleaned, replaced... 100% fixed for $0)

Cheers,

Nobody crosses over that easy. I say you're a spy.
