Welcome!
My first vehicle was a Ranger when I got it when I was 17. Best investment ever. Spent 5000 for mines, worth every penny. I say get the Ranger, you won't regret it.

Well I haven't looked at specific trucks that are for sale yet, but from all the research I've done I want a 4x4

I bought it with 69xxx, it now has 78,xxx. It still runs amazing. The body lift wasn't to hard to install. I did it with a bud, and his dad. Took about 12 hours. Beer helps too . Those rims are just stock 15's. I'm planning on getting some Cragar soft 8s.

the 4x4 would mainly be for shitty road conditions, not really anything crazy. I like the look of the lift also. I suppose 2wd would be more ideal for my usage

Yeah I didn't realize how dumb that made me look. haha. 4x4 would only be used for slick roads and muddin

the thing that sucks is that I can only get somethin with under 100k on it. I'm looking for ext cab only too, so it's like finding a needle in a haystack.

Thanks for all the input yall, preciate it. Happy Texas Independence Day! there's a marshmallow
