it would be cool to do the 35w bridge, but im not driving all the way to Minneapolis to take a pic.
Plus submissions and in like 2 days so it was short notice.
Plus I like the look of the off roading ranger with the interstate bridge in the background

Ok..i handed out 3 FRF cards, one to a young guy with a silver/grey 98-00 ranger stepside, body lifted, chrome tail lights and dual exhaust...ran into him at the gas station.
Handed another out to another 98-00 red ranger stepside to a girl at another gas station.
Then I put another card under the wiper of another ranger in a parking lot...

Also today, driving by a local used car lot, I saw a red ranger, was a 2003 4.0 automatic 4door. Went in to look at it, got suckered in to test driving it.
It has 98k miles on it, tan interior ugly, power everything, but the power mirrors didn't want to work. The truck had scuffs and scratches all over, and when u start it, after the engine turned over was a wierd creaking noise, and then when driving it, it seemed like the gears wanted to grind in maybe 3rd to 4th gears, and it did both of these consistently...it must have some issues.
Plus the bed was scuffed and rusting and had lots of paint peeling in it and even had two small rust holes in the center.
Only two things I liked about it was the nice powerdome hood and the 4 doors.

Also it had no fender flares and the tailgate was dented....

Anyway they said they just got the truck the other day, which I believe because I drive by their lot every Monday and Wednesday on my way to the YMCA, and it wasn't there on Wednesday.
The kicker is, the guy said the bank value is $10k.
And they said they would maybe let it go for $9500.
And then they asked me about my truck and I told them all the specs, 99 3.0 2 door ext cab, and then about my new engine and rebuilt transmission. They said if I provide paper work to prove that, they would give me $3500 for trade in...
I laughed...and said the rebuild of the transmission cost me $1900 1 year ago, and the rebuilt motor was $3200 about 5 yrs ago.

Anyway I told them if they came across any ext cab 4 door 4.0s with a stick shift, to give me a call.

But this is the first ranger I've seen on a lot in a while.
I know the local Chevy place has an 02 and they want $8500 for it but it's dark blue and has 178k on it. Freaking ridiculous!

OK so I found out why my lights didn't work, the relay had like 78 ohms of resistance and was rusted to shit.

No I didn't, I don't think it will sell any time soon. Plus, I really don't need it as of now..
