Post New to Ford Ranger

Hello, I just got my hands on a used 2000 Ford Ranger. V6 3.0L. Its a 2wd only but its great. I love it. I am thinking of doing miner upgrades on it. What are some good advice and how-to's. I am a beginner at trucks modification. I have done no modifications. Besides a new radio with a cd player. That came with the truck. I can use any advice. Thanks

Making the truck breathe better is always a good option. Exhaust can be affordable. I have an intake on my 3.0, but all that really did was make it sound better. Headers are cool and you will notice a difference, just depends what kind of budget your on. A programmer is a good way to wake that motor up. I hear slot about turbos, and superchargers but they can get pricy. No matter what your gonna have alot of fun with your new toy.
