Talking First Truck

hi fellow Ranger Owners, I am happy to anounce that I will be the proud owner of a new Black 2011 Ford Ranger 4 Sport 4X2, manual with power group, AC and Cruise. This is my first truck and considering that I waited 6 years to finally have a tryck as well as a manual (not a fan of the slush box no offence) i thought I would combine the 2 by purchasing this ranger.

I was considering other competitors such as the frontier and Tacoma, But I decided to test drive the Ranger first since its was the most realistic for my budget. Wow did the truck impress, all though i did test drive a base Sport 4X4, the experience left me decided that I needed to look no further. I look forward to posting more about my proud little truck (the last of the compacts).

The Only thing I regret already is that I assumed the Box liner came standard (just like tacoma) since I have not seen a modern (lol modern and ranger would probably be funny to non ranger owners) Ranger without a box liner. I was sad to discover that truck will not have said box liner. It will teach me to not take things for granted and I will have to invest in a box liner soon. Until then I will use a carpenters blanket to protect the bed.

I look forward to rowing the gears of my new cologne 4L down the highway and to take bikes out soon. I hope my first real truck turns for the best. Cheers and I will update soon.

Welcome to the forum and Congrats on the new ride!
As for you a bed liner, look around in the classifieds, craigslist or the Canadian equivalent, swap meets and such. Might be able to pick up one on the cheap.

Welcome to the forum!

You might want to consider a roll-on or spary-on bedliner.

Would you recommend a spray on vs just the plastic box liner? Which one is the most trouble free and cost friendly option?
