Smile First Ranger for This Guy!

I moved to Minnesota with my trusty Corolla a few years ago and it doesn't appear that I'm going to be relocating to a less severe winter climate anytime soon... so I replaced the Corolla with a 2001 Ranger about a week ago. It's an 4x4 XLT with 4 doors, stepside bed, off road and tow hitch.

The jump seats are the perfect size for my dogs, not sure I'd even sit comfortably on them (and I'm 5 foot 3). The joke is that it's a good thing I didn't buy a bigger truck... because then I'd need a bigger bucket to stand on when working in the engine compartment.

I'm already loving the truck, but it needs a little TLC at the moment.

I like doing projects (building a fence, putting shelving in a closet, etc) and this doesn't exclude my car/truck. When I bought the Ranger it needed a new muffler (the stock one had rusted to a likeness of metal swiss cheese) so I replaced it with a 50 Delta Flow.

There's a few more rust spots that need to be taken care of and the vents currently will only blow through the defrost with a small amount of flow through other vents. Hoping to replace the stereo head unit if I come across some extra cash eventually.


...looking forward to future projects with the Ranger, which I named Rick.

Finally! Some pictures have been taken of Ranger Rick.
...and I've put a little bit of work into him. Put steps on, swapped the cigarette lighter out for another 12v dc outlet, put an extang cover on the bed, upgraded the audio deck, replaced the beaten up headlight assemblies... general care.
Hoping to put heating elements in the seats before the Minnesota winter hits.
