Ran into the truck I traded in for this truck today. Was pretty cool talking to the new owner and how much they appreciated the work I put into the truck...def made me feel good about it.

Felt weird driving away from her...its crazy how you can get attached to a truck lol

What's even worse is to meet the guy who owns your old truck and you see the awesome work they've done to it that you wanted to do the whole time you owned it.

My very good friend is a big time ranger enthusiast, we were on a forum together and went to highschool together while I had my ranger. They were a year part, but basically the same aside from color. Anyway, I traded it in for my first 150 in 07' and some guy bought it. Turns out that guy and my good friend have become friends with rangers and downhill mountain biking as a common interest. I went over to help him do a coil over conversion on his ranger and there was my old ranger, lifted 7 inches on 35s, with all kinds of awesome work done to it. The guy was there to help us out, him and i are buddies now, he's a good guy. That was the first truck I bought on my own and I was quite attached to it, it just got too small so I know exactly how you feel man

Thats why I hate to sell or trade local! I hate seeing an old vehicle...i get attached to them all to a degree. Sounds like you can deal with it better than me!

Ha it helps going from a Hemi to a Cummins...but it still sucked bc I had lots of blood, sweat, and tears in that truck. I was the idiot walking around the shop floor at the deeler taking pics.

It was hard...but I moved on to bigger and better things!
