Default New to the Ranger world

My name is Dan, i live in Tigard, OR. im 26 and a Window Washer, im saving up for a dirtbike, i also rock climb, and make beer with my buddies. ive had my truck for about 5 months, i boutght it after i totalled my car on I-5N back in may.

As far as my truck goes, i bought it with a lot already done to it, it's a 1998 XLT, 4.0L, V6, 5-Speed, it was already lifted 5"(i Believe it's a body lift) with 33" Trxus M/T's on Black Wheels, IPF Fog lights, Tinted windows(not sure on the percentage), Eclipse Deck w/ Amp and 10" Sub, White LED's in Dome, Aftermarket Performance Clutch, Aftermarket Shifter, Red Top Optima, Single Pipe FlowMaster Exhaust with a single pipe that dumps right infront of my rear passenger tire, Custom Fab Rear Bumper, Aftermarket Tail-Gate with inset License Plate Slot and Blue LED License Plate lights(got to change those out soon, already got pulled over for them). Unfortunately the kid i bought it from didn't tell me a whole lot of details about what all he did to it so I'm not quite sure what a lot of the stuff is, but I'm doing my research to figure it out.

So far, i've Swapped out the Vaccum Locking Hub's for the AVM Manual Locking Hubs, and Switched out all the Spark Plugs and Wires, after my truck started miss firing.

As far as the Future, i'd like to get Long-Travel shocks for the front, a Full Size Spare, and possibly lift(suspension) it a couple more inches to fit 35's, CB with a PA mounted behind Grill if i can fit it, and any other mod's that increase power and give better abilities for wheeling.

Pictures are soon to come, dont got a camera, just my phone so ill take some good pics of my truck and post some soon.

I know i got lucky with the setup i got as a starting platform but there is always room for improvements, so i figure this is a good place for the info and ideas.

Thx for the awesome site, and i look forward to all the help, tips and awesome ranger madness i'm getting into.
