Wink 'nother newbie.

Name is Dale, and I just bought my 2nd Ranger.

First discovered the Ranger when a company I worked for bought a fleet of '95 Rangers.
I liked them so much that in Feb. '97 I bought a brand new '96 XLT that was leftover stock from the previous year. I didn't even test drive it since I felt I knew all there was to know.
I drove it until 2004 when I decided to move on to a more family friendly car.
What a mistake. I missed that truck from that day forward.

Last week, I picked up an '03 XLT that is exceptionally clean with only 86k miles on it.
This time I had to have an ext cab., and AC! My '96 didn't have AC and it was like driving a pottery kiln on those 90*plus days.

Couldn't be happier!

Here is a pic of it from the dealer's ad.
I had a new set of Firestone Destination A/T tires installed on Sunday.

2003 XLT Ext Cab. 3.0 2wd. Auto. Current driver.
1996 XLT Reg Cab. 2.3 2wd. Manual. My 1st Ranger.

An expert is someone who knows everything about something they've never done before.
