    Thanks! LOL, I've been on TW since January 2010 researching and patiently waiting for an SR5 with buckets and low miles to pop up...this is an '08 w/less than 17,000 miles on the clock. Love it so far!

    Thanks...and actually, that Ranger was very good to me. Bought it new in '05 and put about 92,000 miles on it with not one mechanical problem. It survived a head on (both airbags deployed) and, even more impressive, my divorce ;)

    I just posted these to the 4 cylinder page, but thought I would show here what I've done so far...TRD OR, new Discoverer ATs, OEM cruise, UWS box, and tint. I think I have it about where I want it : ) Thanks again for the warm welcome guys and gals.
