Default New from Iowa

Hello!

Bought my first Ranger about 2 months ago, and have already learned a lot from creeping around on the boards. Thought I should get around to introducing myself. My name is Nate and I'm from Des Moines, IA. My truck is a 2000 XLT, red flareside, 4wd with the 3.slow, 5 spd. Love it. I traded an 89 Chevy 1500 for it and haven't thought twice about it. I've already done the explorer OHC mod, FX4 shifter and have just a few more to do in the interior before it's all said and done. Would like to lift it, but also have to convince my wife that it's worth it

I look forward to being an active member on the site.

Nate

Thanks guys! I'm at work now so I don't have access to Photobucket or Flickr or anything so I've attached a somewhat crappy pic. As you can see, 99% stock on the outside. That will change one of these days...there's an 03 powerdome hood for sale in Des Moines for $150 that I haven't quite been able to convince my wife I need...hopefully that will change very soon....
