    Some mooseknuckle lovin' old dude has been bugging me for months so here I finally am...

    Alot of you may recognize my username, or my truck, or me. Or you may not recognize me at all! lol. My name is Shane. I've been in the Ranger e-world since '03ish, before I even got my own big truck. Big truck meaning something other than a 2wd XL 4cyl regcab. lol. Anywho, long time member of plenty of other Ranger boards. Truck of the Month on two or three, former very very active member on many and a past forum moderator at my former home. Been out of the Ranger forum game for quite a long time. 25 y/o and drive a tow truck for AAA to pay the bills. Soon to relocate out of Portland, Oregon.

    A little about the truck... Bought her back in high school 'cause I was sick of constantly fixing the piles of junk I already owned('71 chevy...MY BABY!!! going on the pre-nup!! and '85 Toyota). 2001 Ranger XLT 4x4. She had 30k on her. Basically dumped a ton of money into her, but not as much as you might think, and attemped to make my own '03 Fx4 Level II, hence the username. Found a '03 FX4LII before I found the '01, but the parents wouldn't co-sign for a 13k truck when I was 17. My wannabe has a '06 4.0, '05 5spd trans that's Hurst shifted, '02/'03/'97 hybrid manual tcase w/ 02-03 twin stick bezel/shifter/boots, 31spline 8.8 w/ 4.88 gears and an Auburn ECTED diff, Flowmaster Super 44 dual-out exhaust dumped at the spare carrier, complete '03 interior conversion('03 LII seats, '03 XLT gauges, '03 Sport Trac HVAC/ '05 shorty console, '03 XLT door panels), Cobra 29 digital cb w/ 5' FirestikII, Leer 100R canopy. I know I'm forgetting a ton of stuff but this is just the intro. lol.

    Don't really expect to learn much here, but do what I do best, help folks. And that's what I love to do. Call me cocky or a know-it-all, but I know my shiz about these trucks. lol.

    Peace, Enjoy, and keep the high school drama bull**** down!











    And some more recent shots.....'cause who doesn't like pics!?!?!??? I mean really? lol.





    And last, but certainly not least....the most recent pic.....

    That would be mine, yes. Circa Winter '08 is when that pic you posted was taken.

    No repaint. Only repaint on the truck is the flares and valence and if you wanted to consider it, the LEER. But other than that, just lazily cared for stock LL - Deep Wedgewood Blue. lol.

    PS: LOL @ uploading my truck to your Bukit. haha. Been a long while since I've seen that! lol.

    Thanks everyone.

    I've got some plans with her and ongoing mods/upgrades that seem to just stay in their boxes! Thanks work! Oh....also thanks work: Only put 3.5k on her this year. Needless to say, she's always on the battery tender and that alignment I've been putting off has been put off for another year. lol.

    Damn right.

    Just workin', old man.

    HAHA.... in time my friend, in time. Right now and for the foreseeable future, it's just not the right time.

    A big one. lol. Everything you can toss at it off the shelf and then some. lol. Front is a 4" Superlift w/ Fox 2.0 coil-overs, 3" bodylift. Rear is a mash-up of parts...Explorer leafs w/ additional leaf, Belltech 6400 shackles, stock blocks, and as soon as Duff sends a fax, James Duff long link traction bars.

    Thanks for the NASTY comment. haha.
