Default Turick's Truck is here and I'm ready for Upgrades!

Hey guys. Love the site and cant wait to start posting!

I guess I'll start off with the basics;

I am a Photojournalist for the USAF and have been for 8 years now. Loving every minute of it. I just got my Ranger less than a year ago but before I could really love her I was deployed to Afghanistan for 8 months, so technically I've only "used" my truck for about 3 months now. Haha.

My wife doesn't understand my love for trucks or why I keep tinkering and modding it every chance I get but soon I will show her the light! My 3 kids on the other hand want to ride in "Daddies Twruk" as much as they can and that makes me happy

This is actually my first Ranger as I have owned S-10's, Tacoma's, and a Dakota and I had to ask myself, why didn't I own one before?? My Ranger is the most fun Pickup I've ever owned and I will probably never go to any other Truck as long as I live!!

About my Ranger; "Crimson"
(Oh cmon guys... you know you've named yours too even if you wont say so!!)
My Ranger is a White 2002 STD CAB, 4cyl 2.3l Automatic
Mods: Sony Xplod Deck 200w, bed liner, Better Built Tool Box in back. Sadly, its pretty Stock but a plethora of mods coming as soon as I get back into the swing of things here.
(If your wondering about her name, she will remain white with red accents via lights due to my love for Alabama Football, Crimson Tide)

Future Mods:
K&N 77-2552KP Chrome Cold Air intake http://store.knfilters.com/search/pr...Prod=77-2552KP
Flowmaster American Thunder Muffler http://www.autoanything.com/exhausts...A2511A0A0.aspx
30% Window Tint, bucket seats with Explorer center console, 4 Alpine 2 way Speakers with 4ch Kenwood Amp, White gauges with Red Back-lit, Red LED dome light, Red floorboard light kit, Red front grill light kit, Chrome billet Grill, 3" lift kit, new tires/rims.
Basically A LOT!!

And now my Baby

Thanks all for the warm welcome. ColinS: I was talking to a friend at work who mods cars for fun and he took a look at my engine and told me a CAI would only give me about 6hp. I would do better with a short ram air intake or just a high performance drop in.

I have done some modding to my interior since I last posted just not sure where to post the pics! It's not a lot as I am on a limited budget at the moment but it's a nice start!
