Default I converted someone to ranger-ism

After several months of persuasion and dedication, i finally persuaded my dad into getting a ranger. He's been on the boarder about it for months and his car has seen better days. After 4 months with the rear brakes clamped off with a vice grip, fuel leak, and constant over heating, the cadilac has taken a turn for the worst. He needed a ride so i found him a 2005 Ranger STX, thing is better than mine! Anyone else convert people they know to the awesome rides they call rangers?

I'll be doing that in a manner of speaking. I plan on giving my Ranger to my mom for her gardening purposes and as a second vehicle after I finish fixing it up. I need somthing with 4X4 and more power. Options are open for a replacement, maybe an extended cab Ranger with a 4.0 or and F-150. It depends a what opportunity brings.

Don't be a "thread jacker"
Thank you!
