Never added to this thread.

Couple weeks ago: tore out entire interior, shampooed the carpet, cleaned everything, installed new wiper handle, installed Mustang dome light, redid rear window, redid third brake light so it won't leak (although, I know I'll have to do it again), bead-blasted my new spare tire carrier parts, painted said parts, sanded and painted new rear end, sanded and painted new aftermarket differential cover.

Starting last week: took off the bed, pulled the bumper.

Starting this week: sandblasted the rear half of the frame, installed new leaf spring bushings in the rear leaf eyes, installed new shackles.

Today: finally got off the passenger rear leaf hanger, sanded the frame a bit, primed the right half of the rear half of the frame.

Tomorrow: get off the driver side rear leaf hanger, sand, prime the other half of the frame.

Future: Paint the frame, install new hangers, get the front leaf bolts out (ugh), install new bushings there, install new pinion/axle seals in new rear end, pull the old rear end, put in the new rear end, finally install spare tire carrier, get brand new used bed on, get truck painted, spray in Herculiner, finally install new rear bumper as a "piece de resistance" because it's an OEM Ford Ranger tube bumper.

Somewhere in there, maybe even after I get the truck painted, I'm gonna put my new coil springs in.


1996 Ford Ranger STX, 4x4, 4.0L, excab, automatic, power everything. 8.8 28 spline 3.73, K&N FIPK, Expo center console, Mustang dome light w/ LEDs, 2" skyjacker coils

More rework because of the former owners incompetence……

Noticed a loud metallic klunk every time I shifted gears. Ben getting worse for a week. I finally found the 4 bolts that hold the driveshaft flange to the pinion flange were loose.

Some people shouldn’t be allowed to own tools………

Well, when you park your truck in ghetto areas, it calls for ghetto tactics. And yes, they can still break into the truck, but I got tired of spending 114 dollars to replace the door lock every time some a hole with a screwdriver got curious about what's inside the truck...
