Default New From San Diego...

Hi guys...

My name is David and just took ownership of my new "used" 2007 Ford Ranger XLT Sport. I recently purchased a new quad and needed something to haul it, and after researching tremendously, I figured that the Ranger was the one for me...

The last truck I owned was a 2007 Honda Ridgeline, which isn't really a truck, but an El Camino on steroid, but needless to say, was a great truck.

Got my Ranger loaded with 50,000 for $13,500, and for Cali prices, that's pretty good.

Came with a fabtech 3" spindle lift with 2.5" rear lift. It sits nice but man I need to learn the whole turn radius thing, or lack there of.

Just got done rerunning all of the sub wiring (came with 2 12" polk subs in custom box which takes up the entire extra cab ) and installed 2 12V switched plugs under dash. I didn't know that Ford makes the inside ones on all the time, & my GPS would have killed the battery lol... Wired her in using a Tap It connector to the accessory wire, but my dumb ass triggered the ABS light as I plugged in hot accidentally. Oh well, you live & you learn I guess...

I look forward to any ideas & help I can get and give in the future. It seems like a relatively easy engine to maintain & service & look forward to it ( and getting to the desert ).

Thanx
David

Welcome to the forum! Just so you know, there is no such thing as an "XLT Sport" what you have there is a "Sport."
