Got the front edge of the Powerdome trimmed to fit the '04 grille. Finished off the back edge, patched the cracked areas, scuffed underside and "pretty" side, broke off one of the rusty hood latch bolts. Maybe some primer tomorrow if the weather stays decent.

Bought a honda hook.


Towed for the first time with the truck, light load was 640lbs dropped off at the dump.


Then found a little mud.

04 ranger 2wd xlt 4.0, coil over suspension- this may be the wrong forum but here goes, need a lil help im ordering new control arms and ball joints from rock auto.

question is which lowers do i order? going with moog, theres 2 listed, p/n K80771 and K88771T...... which is it? also do i need the caster camber bolt kit? or will the caster camber cam kit be sufficient? hope to get some help as im tryin to order right now!

I did some JY shopping this morning and found enough parts to make a decent expo center console. So I caved in and did the 60/40 to 40/40 mod and threw the console in there.



Dont think it looks bad, Sure is comfy and much better for storage than my old broken center console. Also snapped a pick of how the seat looks cut and tucked



Not perfect but my seat is stained and worn out. I am gonna do nicer buckets when I stop being so picky and specific about what I want for it (99ish heated grey mountaineer leathers)

Long *** day today. Did a master rebuild Overhaul on the front diff. The bearings were making some noise. Then I did axle seals and bearings in the rear with some Mobil One fluids front and rear. Then I got around to figuring out my shake and come to find out its completely gone. The diff must have been it. I smell like a axle

E brake works great now. 105,000 miles on stock rear brakes and I use my E brake daily concidering i drive a manual. Now it works so great I dont want to use it lol.
