Ordered a custom 4x4 fabrication front bumper. Then me and Kyle went up to Fort Collins and picked up one of Josh's front skid plates for his truck.

Replaced driver's side front brake line and hose, replaced passenger side hose and spliced in section of line to caliper. Adjusted drums to actually have the pads engage unlike they were, for some reason. All in all.....a long day mainly because of the damn brake line replacement.

Hooked it up yet again to the computer. I hate seeing CEL's. Today it threw PO442 and PO457. I've cleared both those codes now at one point or another. Any of y'all know what's causing the codes? Any suggestions would help.

Got rid of the stock POS flag mirrors and installed a set of 06' mirrors. Looks a lot better, the increase in visibility is going to take some getting used too.

Yesterday I drove mine 500 miles round trip to the grandparents. Averaged 22mpg even with a slight misfire, and a check engine light on. My new scan tool should be in the mail today from my sister so I can get the code off it. Pretty sure it needs a new wire set.

Ordered up the new wire set for the Ranger. Also cut myself a spare door key from the couple hundred old stock non PATS keys we have here. Going to keep it in my wallet to save me from if I lock myself outta my truck.

Funny story. Back about 11 years ago I was in Minneapolis when I locked myself outta my S-10 lowrider I had. Called my dad to bring me the spare key. Granted he was about 40 miles away. Next thing I know my truck is being put on the hook because it was in a no parking zone (though I could sneak by for 5 minutes). Just because I didn't have a spare key in my wallet that night cost me $300!!!

Not going to do that again!
