Default Hey everyone, Michigander hopefully moving out west soon

Hey everyone! My name is Jim and I currently live in Michigan. I don't own a Ford Ranger, but I want to. I currently drive a saturn, which isn't helpful since I have a small woodshop where I build furniture. A small trcuk would be nice.

I am currently unemployed, though I am an Industrial Designer by trade. I have professional experience designing medical devices.

My main passion is skiing, but I also love to get out on my Ducati Monster.

Glad to be here!

Hey everyone, we are hoping to get to the Colorado Springs area soon, my wife has a possible promotion happening, so it could be this spring. We have friends and fmaily in Denver, and we both ski and hike, we just love the Mt's

It will be hard not being around lake michigan, but it will be a welcome change.

I am hoping to find a used ranger, 2003 - 2006 4x4.

im doing this primarily because when we move, we will have a uhaul, two cars and a motorcycle. so I'm considering selling my "college car" and picking up an inexpensive ranger once we arrive.

I have had some luck finding reg cab 2wd "fleet" trucks for quite cheap, but the added space and 4x4 will definitely be nice

I have heard unfavorable things about the 4x4 drivetrain and suspension, i could ask this elsewhere, but has anyone heard anything?

thanks the kind words everyone, hope to talk with all of you soon

Jim
