Default Hello, 3rd Ranger, new on this forum.

In 1997 I bought my first Ranger, a 1990 a bare bones stock manual 2.3, didn't even have power steering. The clutch started slipping so I replaced it, after a couple months it started slipping again, I got tired of dealing with it so I traded it in on a 98 XLT, 2.3, automatic. A decent little truck, but no offense to anyone here, but I think the 2.3 is a POS if you drive any distance with even moderate hills. That thing struggled like hell to get up hills. Sold the Ranger when I was stationed overseas, and now I just got a 2010 XLT 4x4 extended cab, auto. I love it. I always liked the styling and the interior. The 4.0L engine is nice, but damn when I turn this thing on it seems like I it goes from full to empty. I'm pretty sure I can actually watch my fuel needle move backwards, haha.

Well, a little about me, I'm 31 yo and an active duty Marine presently stationed in Oregon. Looking forward to getting to know my way around the forum when I get a chance, I'm quite busy at work, so I probably won't be on here as much as I'd like.
