Default New to the Forum, Old to the Ranger

I currently own a 2003 Ranger Edge V6, I am the original owner. Prior to that I bought a 1992 Ranger from a family friend, in 1996, and ran it into the ground. I decided to join the forum because my Ranger is getting up in mileage, currently at 81,500 miles, and it is starting to need a little bit more upkeep then what I am used to. I am having an issue which I post in another section. I do the oil changes and other light maintenance, but when it comes to heavier maintenance I let the mechanic handle it. I am a hands on person so taking it to a mechanic is sometimes hard for me to do.

I have never had any real problems with either of the Rangers. The biggest issue was the timing belt snapping on me on the road in the 92 Ranger .... and the fact it died on me a year later. I hope that I can keep the current Ranger for a very long time. I just had my first daughter and will probably have to get a more family friendly vehicle soon but will not give up my Ranger. You always need a truck right?

Anyway, a little bit more information on my Ranger. It is my everyday vehicle, about 16 miles to and from work plus occasional weekend errands. I changed the starter and battery a few months ago. It is black, has some scratches and dings a few chips on the front but all in all the paint has held up. It is also a single cab, manual, has vinyl flooring (which is awesome since I work in the landscaping industry) and I swapped out the factory radio for a more iPod friendly version.

That is it, I look forward to getting to know some of you.
