    Tex Arcana Other car is a Lightning.

    To Rangers, that is... :D


    I put my black 2001 Lightning in the dryer, and out came that!! :drink:

    Yes, my other (former daily driver) is a Lightning... switching to the Ramger is interesting to say the least! :rolleyes:

    It's a 2005 STX, 3.0L V6, auto, 2wd, 71kmiles. :cool:

    Short version of the story: it cost me $128.50... :eek:

    It cleaned up nicely, tho, and except for a bit of idle stumble, it's running well, pulls nicely (for a 185hp V6 :p), rides well. Those pics show the "new" tires--used set of Yokohama Geolanders from Discount Tire at $50 a pop, not too shabby.

    So, hi!:thumbup1:

    No kidding... Imagine my surprise, tho, when pulling out of the Discount Tire lot, and I lit both back tires up trying to accelerate!!:blink:

    I still have The Beast, and I never will be rid of it, it's a very special vehicle to me. It's going into the garage (once we move), and getting the special treatment it deserves. :thumbup1:

    The Ranger is quiet and smooth (mostly), tho, and runs well, and pulls surprisingly decently; so I think it's going to be a good ride for a long time.

    Thanks y'all... Seeya out in the forums!
