Default Hello form Northern Michigan

Hello all!
I am EERNGER (ryan) From Petoskey, a small town in northern Michigan. I am 23 going on 24 years old and i am a full time college student and part time butcher. my hobbies include wheeling, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, Paintball, and i also race Mountain bikes. I have owned 4 rangers total, a 1986, 1993, 1998, and a 2002 my current ranger which i have owned for a year.

My 2002 ranger is an XLT 4-door with a step side bed. She has the 4.0L SOHC with a 5 speed manual, 4x4, and 4.10 gears with the factory limited slip. im also running a 31" tire right now.....might be running 33's in the near future (possible body lift). the truck currently has 151,000 miles on it.

Additional things i have done with my truck: This past summer i put a gibson dual exhaust on the ranger, and also an airaid intake (soon to be replaced with a volant (im not a fan of the open element)) On the inside of the cab i have a hurst shifter, which i love.

Coming soon. I have a set of hella 500's which i will be placing on the truck soon, i also will be doing a new set of shocks in the spring and i would like to put on a pair of James Duff traction bars on at that time. I also am playing around with a true locker (powertrax) which i might do when it comes time to change the diff fluid again....at that point i might also spend the money for a body lift and 33's and have a well rounded wheeler.

But hey, thats me!

-I picked up some bumper mounting tabs from underdog performance, they attach to your bumper using existing mounting locations, They have a really Solid build quality to them, if your interested in mounting lights i would check into em. i will post pix on my album as soon as i get them on the truck.
