What's up everyone, glad to be here! Picked up my first ever Ford Ranger, a 2020, on Friday. From what the dealership said (take it with a grain of salt of course), they've had the truck for a little bit but no bites; so a short while back they decided to put a lift, front brush guard, bed liner, and tool box. Supposedly a few nibbles but still no bites. I went to go check it out, took it for a drive, and fell in love! It's the lower not so "fancy" model, no fancy interior/stereo/device cluster, but none of that matters; I bought it so I can make it work and do truck stuff; not to just LOOK pretty. So yesterday morning my old lady said I need some rims and tires, so I didn't argue of course... Next on the list is roof rack with spare-tire mount, so i can get a 1-to-2 dual exhaust and have both tips out on the sides behind the tires.

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

That's a good wife

Welcome! I'm surprised they didn't have much interest in it. The new ranger is a hot selling truck, they don't stay on the lot long near me. What did you end up paying?

Agree with Robert...I like this person you call "my old lady."

Be nice to her.
And welcome to TRS.
