my story: Im 16 years old, i am currently in dual inrollent which is hish school and colmmunity college at the same time and i have always wanted a ranger ever sense my oder brother got one. i started my own lawn business at the age of 12, i worked my up with lawn accounts and now have gone pro at 15. it was either play with friends, no truck or work and make money to buy myself a truck. i bought it before i was able to drive by myself. i do all the work on it, along with help from my dad i pay for everything for it, such as insurnse, tag, gas, and anything i want to do to it. many great folks here that deserve this, but i thought i would give a shot at it Bru what you have done with these contest and for everyone on frf, i just like to say thank you!

well here is my story. I am 26 yrs old. I have one daughter that is 4 and another due in July. I got fired from my job after I got an injury on the job. I have two ruptured discs in my back, one is at L5-S1, th other at T5-T6. The guy had dropped his workers comp and I have not been able to work since April 28th 2008. I am unable to apply for Un-employment partially as I am not able to work and the guy I was working for stopped paying into it soon after he dropped the comp. It has been extremely tough as my wife is the only one working, she makes around 18k a year working a Menards, a home improvement store. We barely make it but we do. We are just stringing along until tax return that will give us a shot in the arm and we will be able to pay for our martgage payment for at least 10 months. It seems like every year around tax time something happens that the money has to go towards. Last year we paid off our jeep to lower our monthly overhead.

Anyhow, I would love to be able to fix the rust areas on my truck, I have been meaning to do it but just can not afford it. It gets worse every year. I also would like to have the bottom x-lined up to the first body line. I am sure there are more deserving folks out there. But I got to try!

Probably wont win but it cant hurt to try. well i am a 16 year old student in high school. i live in a very small rural town of under 8,000 people. i recently purchased a ranger from a dealer and i personally think i paid too much for it. and i need repairs done but that will be put on me. i have no job eithier but i dont want too just keep listing these things and sound like a desperate case. i just got a 4 inch rough country lift but i need rims and tires to go with it before i put it on. i am bummed because with no job and money is tight at home i most likely will not be putting on the lift kit for a while . well if choosen my mod would be a nice set of tires and rims. simple as that and i thank you for your time in readin this Bru. well i love the forum and everyone in it and whoever wins this it will be a well deserved win. thanks love all you guys!

I really can't say why I think I should win it, There are way more deserving people than I am, I am only 16, got my 2001 Ford Ranger EDGE last year. It was on my 15 birthday when I recieved my truck, I only have $1,500 in my truck I was fortunate to find it for the price I did. I had saved money ever since I was 12 because my brother told me one day I was going to want a vehicle. Money is tight for everyone and that doesn't disclude me, I have no job. I would love a job, just so I could fund money into my Ranger just to keep it running as long as possible because all the money I had saved went into getting the truck.
I went to a local junk yard and looked at a few things in Rangers, and then I decided to look in an Explorer and notice the insides looked very similar,and liked the seats and center console I had seen in that Explorer, so I never knew a mod existed until the day that I searched "Ford Explorer Seats in a Ranger", And this forum actually popped up. And that day was one of the few GREAT days in my life, because even though I am a little new here, I will always know what I can do to my Ranger, and even how I can fix something if somethings torn up. So whether or not I win this contest, Thanks Ford Ranger Forum

Well I'm going to be turning 18 on the 14th and finishing high school soon. I cant get right into college now becuase I don't have the money, but I have earned a Michigan certification for diesel tech and I've earned an OSHA safety certification, I only have a summer job at the moment, but I plan on getting a full time job somewhere. As far as my Ranger goes, its my second truck, my first truck, an 85 Ranger, needed more money put into it than what I had so I needed to sell it. Ive only been able to do small changes with my truck becuase I'm nearly broke, but I'm planning on making it into a mild off road truck, something that can go off road but still being DD friendly. If I can land a good paying job I like, I might not go to college, but if I don't then I'll have to save up for it. Well that's me and my entry.

You are the winner of this New Years Contest, I want to personally say thank you for your participation and post, I know all to well a many times over what it is like to not only loose someone so close to you, but to have something that belongs to them.

In my case it's my son's Ranger and i will mod it till I cant mod it anymore, Continue where you dad left off and maybe my son and him can now get to know each other in the after life, Low and behold they never imaging that we would take their ranger/mazda to another level.

Again CONGRATULATIONS
