The new ranger looks pretty cool! I was looking at the Chevy Colorado, but I decided not to get into debt for that new car smell. So got this instead lol.

It's been years since I've driven a pickup truck. It sure felt weird at first. And the fact that the solid axle in rhe back makes it more tail happy than a mustang sure makes you to pay attention while driving. More so on bad roads like everywhere here

Just replaced the crappy horns with OEM 2010 f-150 units. Now it sounds like it should Also installed a mc guard tailgate lock so a random douchebag can't steal it.

Been thinking of swapping the pony wheels from the 96, but since the tires on the 15"s are almost new, that won't happen soon.

Nice! Never had a ranger, but small trucks are awesome. No more hauling stuff in the Mustangs trunk! It's tail happy because there's no weight over the rear axle. In the winter, just put some weight in the back for traction. I've seen these things that look like water beds, the idea is they'll freeze and not move around. This one 4WD?
