Default Said goodbye to my Ranger :(

Although I was sad to see it go I am very excited about what the future holds. Some of you may know that I have been in the market for a full size truck for months now. I loved my Ranger and it was very good to me (in a perfect world I would have kept it and bought another truck) but it just wasn't enough for me at this point in my life. I needed more cab space and little larger bed and towing capabilities due to work. To be honest a big factor in my hesitation to upgrade was how much I love being a part of FRF lol. This website made my Ranger 10x more of an exciting truck than the day I bought it. I was dead set on a F150 but kept hitting dead ends cuz of what you get for the money so I decided to go outside the box a little.....

07 Ram 1500 SLT 5.7 Hemi (White of course)
I got it Factory Certified with an Ext Warranty which was the kicker for me. No way I could have found a Ford this nice with that perk.

I haven't whored it up yet so this is the only shot I got of it

I have always driven Fords and this was tougher than you realize to actually pull the trigger on lol but I fell in love with the Dodge and so far its seems to be a very tough truck.

I want to thank all the members for a great time on the forum and hope you don't mind if I still hang around and maybe pitch in every once in while. I will still promote this site and pass out the remaining business cards I have cuz I truly believe this is the greatest Ranger forum on the net!

I didnt take much out of the Ranger cuz they gave me a pretty good trade on it and just didnt want the headache of tearing stuff apart then trying to sell it but I may have a few Ranger related things for sale.....

Now to find a decent RAM forum.....

He aint leaving guys, he said he's sticking around and still is going to promote this site. Sad to see you get rid of your ranger. You'll like the Ram. It's one of the few dodges that I would buy if I had to. Mom's had her neon now for almost 10 years so this one should last a pretty good while if you take care of it.

I don't blame you. I just got a new job that pays much better and am contemplating letting go of the Ranger for a F150 Screw. Gotta give it a bit of time to get settled in and buy a house first, but after that I will be upgrading.

I drove a fullsize for a DD for years before the Ranger, and it was so much better. The Ranger just seems so damn small.

Good luck with your new Ram.

Sometimes I wish I had a full size and other times I'm glad I don't. I do wish I had a little bit more cab space from time to time.
