Remember the front plastic panel that was messed up on my Ranger when I bought it? I said someday I'd replace it.

On April 14th I sold the original wheels and tires to Atheer Alhneen on Facebook Marketplace.


When I met up with him I learned that he buys 2019+ Ford Rangers that are damaged, fixes them, and sells them. I mentioned that soneday I need to fix that panel.

On April 15th he contacts me and tells me he can get me a replacement and have it painted for me. I'm busy and don't contact him back right away.

The deal was to good to pass up and on April 22 I give him the OK and the paint code. I figure he'd get around to it the next day. Nope. On the 24th he send me a photo and tells me it's ready!

I went down to his shop (Putivar Auto Sales) in Arlington Texas yesterday and picked it up.

Now I just have to figure out how to get the old one off.

While I was there I saw this Ranger he just sold:

And they were doing the final detail work on this one:

That's the Ranger my wheels and tires went on.

I looked at some other vehicles he had that were sold waiting to be picked up. They all looked showroom new.

Speaking of that Ranger, I really like the LED headlights he put on it.

I added LED bulbs to my stock headlights, but I may upgrade to these. That top led section of the light flashes amber left ( on the left side) when the turn signal is on.

I wish I would have found this guy before I bought my Ranger new from a dealer. I probably could have got a better deal on a nicer Ranger.

Did you notice the Land Cruiser in the other photo?

His uncle imports them, fixes them up like new again, and sells them.

My credo
Buy it, build it, and drive it like you stole it

Well, I will say if you bounce it off a tree, it pops right out, haha. Don't ask me how I know. Pops back in, too, though.
