Sorry bout the suspense, been driving it all day getting back to school, just got here. First guess wasn't that far off, lol! It'* an 02 Ferd Ranger. Extended cab, shortbox, 5 spd, 4x4. And I gotta tell ya, I'm not too impressed with the mileage. It'* gotta have like 4.11 gears or something, cause in fifth at 70, I'm turnin 3 grand. I got 18 mpg on the way over, hopefully it'll do a little better at lower speeds. It'* only got 65,000 miles on it. They gave me 7,000 for the bonne trade in, but only 5,000 for the diesel, so with the numbers game, I was upside down around 500 bucks for the both of them. I miss'em somethin' fierce already, but financially this was the best thing to do. I think. I didn't get a chance to demod, but I did steal the 3 gauge pod pillar (and Pauls transceptor ). Anyways, I'm pooped, so I'm gonna hit the hay.

At the 2008 Indianapolis Auto Show, 1337ssei and I saw the 2008 Ferd Ranger gets about 22 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway. That'* strange, especially for a 4L V6. So, what do you plan to do with your new vehicle?

It goes without saying that I am heartbroken to see Cueball leave your hands. I will never forget the moment that you limped into your spot at the KOA next to mine, at WCBF '05. You and cueball really are a big part of the BC family.

I hope everything goes well for you.
