I had 17 pine trees and two oaks removed that lined the driveway... Tornadoes seem to be the biggest threat here in Georgia the past few years. I don't think there's a steel cage strong enough to protect it from the severe F3s and F4s we've had. Maybe one day I'll have a full basement to keep it in...

It's never had so much as a leaf in the bed. No Armor All, that's the factory fresh shine.
The only thing on the truck treated with a shine is the tire wax. Helps keep 18+ year old tires moist and dry rot free.

Ya, it's a 4 cylinder. However, it's about to get dropped to the ground. I have a DJM dreambeam kit, flip kit, and belltech nitro drop shocks that are going on this week. New set of Cobra R's and new Kumho tires will accompany the lower stance.

Cool... I have emailed with a guy in Montana with around 30,000 miles on a 97 Splash... I believe that may place you in a distant second place for the lowest mile Splash in existence!

Do you have pictures of his truck? I would like to see it.

Very fitting, especially since it spends it's days in an "air capsule"...

I wish the engine had an hour meter. The truck get cranked regularly, oil changes a few times a year, brakes flushed every year or two, coolant flushed every few years, etc. I like just having it. I have other splashes that I drive. I like it because no one else would do this with a Ranger, so soon it will become the lowest mile Ranger in existence. May take another year for dealerships to clear out the remaining 2011's.

If I get the urge to drive it further than the end of the street, I just open the door and get a whiff of the new car smell it still has and then I'm good.

That's crazy cool. I guess I have never thought of rangers as collector's trucks. Deffinitly a unique truck to have. I would agree that is is probably the lowest mile Ranger out there.

When I bought my 1996 with 85k from the original owner, I thought I had one of the lowest mile older rangers! Mine is clean, but not a show truck.

Do you wish it was a 95-97 to have the newer 3rd gen interior? Or do you like the 93-94 interior?

EDIT: I agree with what has been said..... MORE PICS. There should be pics of every square inch of that truck on here. Make us jealous!
