Default Hello from Mendocino

Just ran across this forum and figured I'd better join, as I have plans to keep and maybe do some new things wtih my Ranger. Its a 2001 XLT with the 4.0 liter package that i picked up used (with about 58,000 miles) about three years ago. I have about 85,000 on her now. (One question I have is, assuming she's cared for reasonably as she has been, what's a reasonable life expectancy on this engine before it gets into major rebuild work?).

I am recently retired, in my early sixties, and am into many outdoor activities, including motorcycle touring and fly fishing. I used the truck to tow my Harley Road King Classic into Utah earlier this year, but just finished a ride on the bike from Mendocino to New Orleans and back. There are many places I want to take the bike, and am contemplating some kind of simple camping rig on the truck that would accommodate both the fishing and motorcycle touring interests.

Welcome to FRF! You should defiantly set up some kind of camping rig on your truck, that would be pretty fun.
