Default Time to Intro myself

Hi guys, I joined a few months back but had not introduced myself as I wasn't a Ranger owner just yet... but that has changed.

Over the weekend I bought a 2006 Crew Cab Ranger with the 3.0L Diesel 5 speed to retire my Miata from Daily duty. It was previously owned by my dad for about a year until recently he bought the new T6 Ranger - that thing is a beast-.

I've only had it for a day as of but spent about 400 miles in it yesterday and I must say it makes for a good long ranger cruiser; 75 mph at 2,200 rpm and getting 30 MPG .

Plans for the moment are T-Bar crank to level it out. Later down the line get some 15" Wheels on 31 or 33" tires and a lift. Just need figure out if the crew cab shares suspension components with the other rangers.

Here are a couple of pictures for now:





And my Miata
