Default Greetings from Michigan

Hello to everyone here at the Ford Ranger Forum. I would first like to say that I like this website so far, and I've only gone into a few corners of it. I'm hoping that this site will allow me to do a few things to my Ranger that I was wondering about.

About me: Unemployed most of 2009, so not much extra cash around to do anything with. I have a job that starts Jan 4, 2010, so the new year is already looking brighter. I will be working for a local building supplier that my dad has been with for almost 30 years. I hope to be there just as long.

About my Ranger: It is a 2001 XLT Supercab, with stepside bed. It is stock for now, but I hope to invest some money in it this year, and make it look better.

Plans for my Ranger: I am hoping to buy a new tailgate shell and get it painted, and replace the one that is currently rusted to he**. Its bad, very bad. I had hoped to get a sport-net or other fabric tailgate for Christmas, but from what I am gathering, no one makes a tailgate narrow enough to fit the bed. I also hope to fix a few rust spots that are starting on the bottom of the 'supercab' doors, and along the rockers as well. I have seen a few things here I wouldn't mind trying, but will admit that I am somewhat timid at doing these things, and can give up easily when frustrated. With the new year, hopefully I can keep myself committed to seeing things through, good or bad, and learning from them

About me: Not much. I like fast cars (own a kind of fast car, more on that later), loud guitars (play bass guitar and electric, own 2 basses, and 1 electric), and am happily in a relationship. I enjoy classic rock, some newer rock, and some country.

I look forward to getting to know some of the people here and learning many things!

I measured 46" from the inside of the bedrails. I see the one on there that is 17" by 45.5" Thanks for the lead!

Also, thanks to all for the warm welcome!

Alright another Michigander. Don't let JayFX4 fool you. He's from Motor City. I'm from way up north. If you blink you'll miss it.

Welcome. I know Grand Rapids pretty well. ONe thing is nice. you can't get lost.
My brother used to work for Bond Construction which I believe has gone out of business and sold off all their assets.

I lived in Wyoming for a summer. My brother lived in Byron Center for a while. I know a lot of people in GR. Great city.

Welcome to FRF.
