Well Happy new years to everyone and i hope everyone has been having wonderful holidays. I just found a cord to my camera so i figured i would share some of the pictures ive been accumulating over the break.
So i got my truck out for the first real time. had a blast, but ended up paying for it...
I was driving to pick up my little brother on the otherside of town when my truck started giving me trouble. ended up in the far right lane of the tollroad (too wide to fit in the shoulder safely) doing my best to maintain 5 mph. really scary, especially with my brake lights and flashers not working and 70mph traffic zipping by.
My other brother Evan (SanityAside) saved the day with some cables and got me settled into a parking lot where i wrenched at most of the next day. Poor truck, i hate leaving her in parking lots. It was 20 degrees out and i broke a couple craftsman sockets because the bolts were on crazy tight. I went out with some tools and figured it out along the way. super easy, 3 bolts and a couple plugs. I left that parking spot trashed
gotta love shiny new parts with a lifetime warranty.
Then i decided this little lean of my driver wheel isnt such a healthy thing so i replaced my wheel bearings. Whoever worked on my truck before me was i dont even know... no dust caps on either side and one side missing a washer. Wheel bearings are a pain in the ***!
And some new electronics
Found this in a parking lot
and a nice wash and wax
So this is whats been going on with me. Heres my truck how i got it back at the end of summer
What's the specs on your Ranger..? I can't find any.. It looks great! Lift specs?? How wide are your wheels??
thanks. I need to update my profile its a spindle lift with a little tbar crankage and blocks and shackles in the rear. 02 3.0l all that good stuff. they are 15x8 wheels. i dont know the backspacing though. they are definitely wider than my old rims

i have the valence off to do some trimming, and to give the paint some attention to make it look all nice and pretty. i like the look without it though, if i had some way to clean up the edges.
Looks good... I've been looking for a spot to mount my GPS... it's not difficult to use way down there?
not at all. just have to be careful about using it in traffic. i really like it down there because its not visible to others like if it was up on the winshield. i know of a couple people who have been followed into parking lots to have their windows smashed for the gps
