Default '01 Ranger in Denver

Hi everyone,

I just bought my first Ranger this past weekend. Its an '01 XLT 4x4, supercab, 4.0L V6. I know its nothing special but its exactly the truck I've been wanting for years.

I don't plan on doing very much to it. I just got a replacement side mirror off Amazon that I plan on installing tonight and I'll be in the market for a new stereo pretty soon. Is there anything I should know about that needs to be done immediately to this truck? Its gonna be used mostly for skiing/camping transportation.

No pics yet due to rain. Maybe soon.

It has 94,000 miles. Would I be able to check out the timing chain myself to know if it still has some life left in it or will I have to take it to somebody?

Welcome John!

Is it automatic? If so, have the tranny filter and fluid serviced

Be sure to create a Signature for yourself,to let others know what your Ranger is equipped with
