Default Honda guy switched to Ford

Well I have only owned hondas and toyotas my entire life. That includes an accord, two preludes, an integra, a tacoma and a 4runner. I have been an import guy since I was born. Time came around for a new (to me) vehicle and I wanted another truck. I was looking online and tacomas were just too expensive for what you get (93s with 250K+ miles listed at 3500-4000) and the Nissans were ugly so I looked at Ford. Much more within my price range and still attractive. Now I gave my friends much crap over the years for their ford/domestic products but I will admit Ford is really the only American brand I'd buy. I must say I'm impressed. I LOVE this truck! Its a 96 XLT 3.0 4X4 5spd with 189K and got it for 1800. Great condition, came with a STACK of maintenence records and feels solid. Gotta say this is either my favorite or second favorite vehicle besides my motorcycles that I have owned. Im officially a Ford convert now. Anyways looking forward to learning much about this truck as I do all my own work to my vehicles. First mod will be to get some 31s/ 265s on her, currently on 235s. Here are a few pics.
