Talking lucky punk kid from NE PA....

been looking around the forum for a while now and figured it was time to join, seems like a really active place!

i've been searching for a 4x4 pickup for a while now, mostly to run to work in the winter and as a toy however, most of what i've turned up was beat to death junk or out of my price range. mentioned my search to my grandfather one day and to my suprise he says " well i've been thinking of selling my Ranger, would you be interested?" of course! ask him how much he wants for it and he sets thinking for a minute and really suprises me by saying "hows $5 sound?"

from what i can remember the truck is an '01 reguler cab XLT 4X4, black with a black cap, power windows & locks, V6 ( dont remember if its a 3.0 or 4.0) / auto trans and 60,000 some odd miles. i dont have the truck yet, he wanted to use it for another month or so, but i've got some simple plans for it. gonna start with new tires scince its still got the factory tires on it, and get a brush gaurd of some sort. mabe a 2" lift down the road

my currant DD is a '97 monte carlo LS i bought for $400, and i have a '65 buick skylark thats been an ongoing project scince i was 15. i cant wait to have something else to play with, haha

yha im really happy about it, i never thought they would actually offer the truck to me. im usually lucky to get $2 for my birthday from my grandparents, lol, so it was quite a suprise. the only thing my grandfather asked was to use the truck for another month or two because he just renewed the registration and inspection on it. no problamo grandpa! im sure it'll need a good detailing but i like getting to detail my vehicles. im gonna keep it as a backup truck / toy and keep running my monte carlo daily.
