Default New guy from SC

Hey y'all!

I'm 23 years old, a student at Clemson University in Ag Mechanics. I work at the local golf course right now, The Walker course. I like to golf, fish, camp...you get the idea. I've owned this ranger for 5 years but I've had a ranger since 2001. My current ranger is a 2003 XLT step side extended cab, with the flex fuel 3.0L, automatic, and the puny 7.5" rear axle with posi-trac.

So far I've removed a lot of stuff such as pin striping, running boards, bug shield/rock guard on hood, put an ARE cover on the bed, a custom grill with 6" driving lights hidden behind the grill, Cherry Bomb Extreme dual exhaust, Pioneer stereo with satellite radio, and an overhead console from a 96 exploder. I'm also in the middle of converting all interior lighting from green to blue LED.

I plan to in the near future actually install the lift kit i have for it, some 31 or 32" tires, component speakers, subwoofer, amps, Exploder leather seats and center console and electronic HVAC, and that pretty much sums it up. Maybe a custom front bumper to house a winch and whats quickly becoming a fantasy either drop in a 302 or a supercharger or both .

Lookin forward to hanging out here, and thanks to whoever sent me the member invite!

Almost forgot, PICTURES!!!

Thanks for the comments y'all!

STL: Ag Mechanics is just what it sounds like really, a mechanic for ag machinery (not just tractors though; HVAC systems, irrigation, general construction, and anything in the ag industry thats mechanized really). But since its at a big four year school like Clemson its really an engineering degree so we get into designing new machines as well as other things, so it ain't just working on it. I also have a minor is Business administration which is nice to have.

Also I've had a couple of questions about mounting the lights behind the grill so asap I'll snap a few pics of the extremely simple brackets I made and post on here.
