Default Howdy From Texas Y'all

Howdy y'all! I got a 2001 Ranger Edge 2 WD. 3.0L, 5 speed, 77k. Got it when one uncle passed away and my other uncle sold it to me. The outside looks great but it needs a new windshield, ball joints, shocks, major brake job, etc.

I've already fixed a leaky 3rd tail light, changed spark plugs, air filter, oil (syn 10w30), wiper blades and bought Chilton's repair manual. Got Bilstein's on the way. This truck needs some maintance but is a good one and should be fun to work on!

I found you guys doing research for the repairs. Got to figure out how to unload the torsion bars to replace the upper and lower control arms. I keep running into this site -there is a lot of very good info and the people here seem pretty cool.

I'll post a pic soon so y'all can see her. Maybe even snap a few of the repair work needed so others can learn from my (lack of) experience.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys! Updated the profile to include a pic so y'all could see my new baby. I'll be doing some work soon and I'll post it. Any input is appreciated. After looking at all the great pix I see I have things to do!
