Default Howdy from Texas

Looking for something more practical, I traded in my '06 Mazda MX5 (Miata) and just picked up my 2011 Ranger XLT 4X2 Supercab yesterday. I went with the 2.3 L and manual transmission. I'm trying to get the best fuel economy I can (I also own a '05 Dodge 4X4 Quad Cab with a Hemi for heavy work needs). I look forward to learning a lot from you more experienced owners here on the forum.

I already have a couple of things planned to do; I'm going to have a spray in bed liner applied and I also will have the driver and passenger windows tinted to the maximum the law allows.

Suggestions are welcomed!

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome.

Hopefully some day I'll be able to give back to the forum. Right now I'm just getting info.

I'm about 25 miles SW of Houston (unfortunately it's getting closer all the time). I see you are in Burleson. Can you send some of the rain you guys have been getting down here.

Haven't got any ANY rain yet. Fort Worth did, but not here in Burleson. We could all use some rain right now LOL!
