Default Hello from Afghanistan!

Hello all,
Comming to you live from Afghanistan. I normally call North Carolina home, but right now my boots sit here at night, sooo...
I am new to the family here, and I have a 2005 Ranger. It's a basic model XLT, w/ no swoopy kewl stuff on it...yet. ( I dont even have cruise control, but would like to change that )
It's my first truck I ever bought and paid for by myself. (very proud of that)
First I want to change the color of my interior dashboard clusters to blue, from that crappy green. That's the first project I have in mind for it. But I am not to sure as to what I will need, how long it might take (1 day? or 1 weekend?), or which route to go by doing it ( new bulbs, celephane, etc).
Eventually I would like to "red neck" it out a bit w/ some lift and slightly larger tires, what can I say I am a red neck at heart.
I wanna get a new sound system for it and install running lights on it. I hope to put up some pictures of my truck soon, but I'm deployed right now, so no ranger here.
Basically, my truck is a blue, blank canvas, that I am soo ready to paint on.
I'm excited to hear about what everyone suggests.
Thanks ahead of time for the info and help ya'll. (ahh crap... yup I'm red neck...lol)
Lacy

Thanks for all the welcome every1. I've really enjoyed reading through these forums. Learning a lot of good stuff, and getting a lot of good ideas too. My down fall is I love to work on stuff, and fix it up. But only know the basics of the engine and such. I am deff not one of those girls who cant change a tire...lol
