Default My first Ranger

I had a GF a few years ago who owned an Ranger and I really like driving it when she let me. So now after years of owning GM trucks and cars, when the last Pontiac died I decided to get a Ranger.

Picked this up from a private owner in a small town about 75 miles away. He took really good care of it. No body damage, just a couple of door dings. Paints good (needs buffed and waxed), but the guy did try to paint the front plastic grill and the paint is coming off of that. My guess is improper prep or wrong type paint.

Two things that need attention right away are that the dome light was having a problem staying on so he removed the bulb and only one dash light is working. The post about how to replace the dash bulbs was the reason I decided to join the forum.

I have just done some basic repairs so far, exterior light bulbs, serpentine belt, put in a new battery and changed the engine fluids. Going to start at the rear end by installing a new Curt hitch and rear shocks, then head toward the front.
