I know how you feel...I just hit 21 years in the USAF last summer. Aircraft Maintenance and PT have taken their toll on my joints!

New here to the page and have only had my Ranger for about 2 years.

Howdy. I haven't gotten a Ranger yet and am still researching. Currently I've got my eye on a 1st Gen manual Vulcan engine, but we'll see how that turns out. 
Thanks for the invite Jammanica.

thought I did this when I joined nov19th last year but I must have skipped it. JAMMAN suggested I introduce myself so I will. I was recommended this forums by madmax and had been chatting with mhoward on another not so active forums.

I have a vista blue 2007 sport 4x4 4door 4.0L V6 ranger. My ranger has been repainted with the original vista blue almost a year ago. I intend to do some upgrades with 410customs next summer. I come here to see what my options are and learn more about rangers. So I'm not new but now you know me if you didnt already. I'm having a great time here and enjoy you all. Thank you for having me.

Hey guys, thought it was about time I showed back up. Been a while, and I need to re familiarize myself with the site. Got a few things to do the Ranger before the snow gets here. Not looking forward to winter.

Holy cow...I feel like I just won the lottery!  What a lively, cool looking new forum!

I spotted the link at the bottom of a post I was reading from JAMMAN on an older Ranger forum I frequent.

The other forums sure seem much more stale these days....now I see why, everybody is over here now!!


Anyway...I have a fairly new to me 93 Ranger XLT Supercab 4x4 4.0 OHV. 

I bought it with an A4LD automatic that was puking fluid from the forward seal when it got up to operating temps on the highway.

So, being the constantly wrenching fool that I am, I immediately sourced everything to convert it to a 5 Speed Manual.

Worked so well that it inspired me to source a manual transfer case and install it, along with a one piece driveshaft from a 98 Ranger.

Next up, Warn hubs...can you tell I like manual controls? LOL
