Talking Long time browser, first time poster... :)

Intro.

Greetings from Illinois!!!

I am really diggin this forum thing! I belong to one other forum site. A drum forum called ceterstagem.com. I stumbled onto that forum a little over a year ago after perusing many others and being very unimpressed by a lot of the posters... once I stumbled onto that one, I new I had found the right group...

...kinda like here...

Good posters, some funny, some insightful, pretty well always helpful or at least honest about not knowing. So, you sold me... I'm in.

...names have been changed to protect the inocent...

A thing or two I have learned about my truck...

1) It has eight spark plugs. EIGHT FREEKIN' SPARK PLUGS!!! ...and it is a &!+<# to change all eight... didn't know that when I started...

2) I LOVE the color... I forget the exact name but it is the burnt metallic orange. It is a little more common on some newer vehicles- tho slightly differant I think- but rangers are the only ones from 2000 i really see it on.

3) There are three to four others of this color in my town....

... Each one different. There is tinted window extended cab guy, normal cab matching topper guy.. you get the point. I was the guy with the basic, but clean one. Until a few years ago. I am now the guy with two year old body damage, three different shades of the same color, a rear fender with one side 3-4 inches lower than the other, and... well thats all i can think of right now, but suffice to say that my truck is my new pet project- even before my classic Yamaha cafe cruiser...

Well, there you have it. the intro. Not quite the short and sweet of my usual posts, but what the hell, its friday night!



CHEERS!!!

Yeah well most everyone uses a picture of their truck right after they wash it. So that's I did; took a picture of what my truck looks like, right after I wash it.
