Just joined. In the process of buying a Ranger right now. I am stationed in Japan but headed home to the states soon. My dad is helping me out by checking out the truck. It was a good deal and I felt I shouldn't pass it up just because I wasn't out of the Navy yet.

Looking forward to learning as much as I can and fixing my new truck up.

**Added**

Guess I was supposed to add more info.

Name is Dan.
Age 30.
Married with a 5 month old.
AZ2/E-5 in the Navy for 5 years now.
VAW-120/VAW-115 (USS Kitty Hawk/USS George Washington)/AIMD Atsugi
Live in Japan.
Survived the big old ground shaker back a month or so ago and perhaps more impressively...the food on an aircraft carrier.
From Citra, Florida
Moving to Jackson, TN

Buying a 2003 Ranger XL. 82k. Auto. White.
Planning on painting it and ditching the stock steel wheels. Not lowering it or anything...just want a clean looking truck. Rhino line the bed and tint the windows for start. Maybe Rhino the interior too...gotta look into that. Gotta do some reading but want to upgrade as much as I can to get it away from the white XL work truck look.

It's just a basic Ranger XL right now. Has a tool box and a drop in liner. Here is the ad:

http://ocala.craigslist.org/cto/2344086016.html

Buying it from an acquaintance and it seems like it's a great price. I've been looking for awhile now and even though I have something within me that hates white trucks...I'm going for it.

Pops is taking it to a mechanic friend tomorrow just to check it out but at that price it would have to be something major and I do not foresee that happening.

I will be taking pictures of it as I work on it and will post them for opinions and advice.

Got the truck! Needs a little work, but nothing major. Can't wait to get home and start fixing it up!
