Default hello

hello ranger forum!
my name is garrett, i live on the west side of michigan, i am a chrysler technician for now until i leave for the navy in feb. i have had "Carla" for about 3 years now, she was in rough shape when i bought her, had to do brakes all the way around, belt and tensioner, new brake lines in rear, abs sensor, bearings and seals in rear end, tires, left front wheel bearing, repair dash and trailer wiring. working on new intake and valve cover gaskets, and repairing reverse lamp circuit.

Carla- is a black 99 xlt 4.0L 4x4.
current mods: 3in suspension lift(torsion keys and add-a-leaf), 16" wheels and tires, explorer OHC, explorer arm rest, pioneer head unit, 8" kicker comp subs in rear doors, kenwood amp, cobra cb, K&N cold air intake and filter, throttle body spacer, silver star headlights, diamond plate tool box, tinted front windows 25%, magnaflow exhaust dumped before axle.

Future mods: another lift susp/body not sure, larger tires, black wheels, custom bumpers, honeycomb grill???, off road lights, lockers, spare tire rack, skid plates, third brake light turn signal, black out all lights and name plates.... all i can think of right now.

any suggestions and or advice would be nice.
