Default New Member from Michigan

I am new to this site from the Detroit, MI area. I have a 2002 Ford Ranger XLT 2WD with the Duratec. Its my daily driver and has been troublefree for me. I bought it used with 51K in 2008, now it has 75K.

My XLT isn't loaded but it does have ABS, carpet and sliding rear window. I added a fiberglass bed cover, updated 6 disc MP3 CD Changer, U-Haul Class III hitch and American Racing Outlaw II wheels.

Here are my pics:


^ Just got it, added the cover soon after purchasing






^ Class III.. Now I need a boat!



Here is my project car, a 1995 Ford Thunderbird V8. It has the Modular 4.6L V8, SCT Tuned, Mustang PBR GT Brakes, Monroe Sensatrak shocks and struts, replaced the whole front end. In April, it will get 3.73 gears, Trac-lok, Mark VIII aluminum driveshaft, single 3" exhaust and Steeda UDP pulley.



Go to my website at http://www.fordthunderbird.net to check everything out! I look forward to contributing to this site.

Thanks for the welcomes. I think I have seen Redneck's truck around.

I was happy how the rims looked when I had them installed. I could use some more "truck like" tires, but they work for now. I am rolling on them another year and replace them if they need replacing or not.
