Default 1st time truck owner!!!

Ya thats right I've never owned a truck until now, and I decided to buy a Ranger. It seemed like the right truck to buy in this economy and also a great utility vehicle to start with I'm 26 and in the Army. I'm trying to learn basic mechanics and modifications the diy way! Would greatly appreciate any guidance any might be able to offer. Thanks and hello to all.
