Default New from Charlotte, NC

Hello all. My name is Tim and I live in Charlotte, NC. I have owned my current Ranger for 10 years. It's a 1998 4X4 5 speed with a 4.0L OHV. It has 197,500 miles on it. Tomorrow I will be on my way to trade it in on a brand new 2010 Ranger Sport 4X4 5 speed in dark grey. Ater owning my truck for so long and being in the market for a new one, there was no better choice than to stick with something I know and that has been one of the best vehicles that I have ever owned. What can be better than something that has been tweaked for 12 years? It should be near perfect by now lol.

My second vehicle is my toy being a 1992 Mustang Notchback with a few mods. I'll have to post some pictures of everything at some point.

I moved to Charlotte to try and get my foot in the door in the racing industry. My first job was a fabricator at DEI (when it was its own shop). From there I moved on to my current employer Joe Gibbs Racing. I moved from being a fabricator to the bodyshop and have been there for 4 years. It's a lot of fun and is my dream job. Before racing I worked for Ford as a line tech for 3 years and a Zamboni driver at a local ice rink.

I look forward to being here with everyone and I feel sure that I will have questions. Hopefully I can help answer some. After looking around, there is a whole lot more knowledge about Rangers here than anywhere else.
