Hey everyone!

I have a 1998 Ford Ranger 2.5-liter inline-4 XLT with flare side bed, manual trans, and 2WD. It is creeping up on 150,000 miles and is trucking along nicely, though the previous owner did not take that great of care with it.

When I got it it had a cracked head, which I have gotten fixed, replacing the entire top end of the engine and timing belt. I have also had to replace the muffler (Michigan winters were not kind to it), and some from end suspension work, but other than that, I love the beast.

I am a student and currently working full-time, hoping to graduate in June with my bachelor's degree.
