For 800 you did good. Tune it up, and probably get another 100K easily.

Not a lot of feed back on here but I did wax her up the other day and it actually came out pretty well.
Here is a list of near future mods:
6k hids
New shocks
New ball joints
3 inch body lift maybe I had one body lift on my old gmc and was not to fond of it but I don't want to waste money in a suspension lift on the ranger.
New paint in the fall October
Here she is all waxed up
