Default My very first truck...and it's a Ranger!

Hello everybody,

I'm from Ontario, Canada and I recently bought a certified used 2008 Ford Ranger Supercab "Sport" RWD, 3.0 V6, 5-speed auto.

I bought it as a daily driver and to move my stuff around as I relocated to a small, remote northern community. Wish I had the 4x4 and REALLY wished I had 4.0 V6 but, meh...the vehicle was relatively well-priced, very low mileage, and immediately available so I just went for it. With some weight in the back, a set of good snow/ice tires, and some cautious driving I should be OK (hopefully) in winter.

It'll spend 99% of its life on pavement, maybe some dirt roads but no intentional "off roading" and no towing. Basically, it's just for light duty stuff (e.g. moving furniture, Home Depot shopping, my bicycles, sleeping in the back on camping trips, etc.) not "real hardcore" truck stuff.

This is my very first truck! I didn't even own an SUV before this. Almost everything is OEM spec. The only things I've added are a LEER cap and a locking tailgate handle. Also put in a cheapo wireless backup camera but it sucks big time and almost never works

Glad to join to forum!

I'm in Greenstone, about 8 hours from Timmins.

I passed through Timmins yesterday on my drive up from Toronto.
