Default Helllo from Northern Calf!! (1st Post)

So you know back in '03 I bought a brand spanking new Ford Ranger for just 8500 buck! Paid in full. It was just the basic V6 5 speed model. Only had a heater and and a AM/FM radio. No AC, and I think it didn't even have power steering. I loved that truck (Except when it was 105 degrees out side!) and when I was forced to sell it a year later to get cash to make my wife's car payment..(don't ask!) it broke my heart. I only put 7000 miles on it.
With the extra cash I had left over I bought a used Honda Civic that served me well until the brakes went out. I gave it away.
Everytime I saw a red Ranger like mine after I sold it I would plead to the lord..."Lord! I want my Ranger back! Please!"
Well yesterday after 5 years my prayers were answered! I got a used 1999 red Ranger (3.0 V6) much like the one I had before. Except this one has the extended cab, AC, AM/FM CD player and the sliding rear window!! And a bed liner!! And brand new tires on nice shiny wheels! And about a hundred thousand more miles then my 06 did when I sold it.
It seems to run and shift just like my 06 did...even has the rough idle that the new 06 had.
Well sorry I wrote such trivia crap just to introduce myself, but nobody twisted your arm to read the whole thing! See you on the forums.
