Default New Guy Dimis

Hey all my name is Matt in 30 and live in lower Delaware
im a full time student
im very big into shooting sports and firearms
i also love driving and go to the track a few times a year
my dad passed away in Nov of 08 and my mom didnt want the ranger anymore so i inherited it free and clear

im not a big fan of this truck but because it was my dads i want to learn to love it
its a 2WD 2001 Ford Ranger XLT with 2.5L

i am planing to mod the heck out of this truck so that i will love it as much as he did
i plan on lowering it and adding a turbo to start with and in the future i may bag it or add a 5.0 V8 (or both)

Welcome to FRF!

Hate to hear about your dad, but sounds like you have some good ideas for the truck to remember him by.

Welcome to the FRF. I got my Ranger in about the same fashion. My Grandfather passed away in 2008. In his will he left it to me, I wasn't a Ford fan, this truck has made me a believer. It is truly a wonderful truck. Have fun with it. There are tons of mods to do to them and they are reliable as hell.
