Took it down to the tire shop and had them put the blackwall out and whitewalls in. Looks a lot better this way. I should have done that a long time ago on every set of tires I have had!

replaced my dash kit for the head unit, I broke a tab on the old one and it was loose in the dash. Sunday I painted the accents on my stock 5 spoke rims black.

Washed and waxed her real good. Working at AutoZone has its perks. (20% discount on everything) gonna be doing a lot more little mods soon. I found this Lucas easy wax and it has already turned some heads. Hopefully going to put the LED bulbs and resistors in this afternoon after the rain too.

Guess my mind's been made up about putting a new exhaust on the truck. It fell off from cat-back. I knew it was all junk, just couldn't replace it yet.

Put new battery terminals and led tail lights in today. The battery terminals were interesting because apparently my battery posts were smaller than the new terminals were. Anyways, they're a whole lot better than the factory ones were.

I've been looking for a new tailgate in Silver for a good price for some time to go on my ranger. Well 1.5 yrs later i found one but its a 2006 style on my 2004. But i like it, worked out ok. May confuse a ranger fan at first.

Today in the glovebox I found an envelope and it had all the papers from when my dad bought the truck, and it even had he window paper with all the options. Found out I have 4.10's from the paper. Since I have new doors with no sticker, and my axle tag is gone, it was cool to find out my gears.

Installed a different brand of LED bulb in the back of the ranger. Lets see if these last more than a month.

Dad used my truck to make a dump run. He was impressed by the ride of the new tires on a gravel road. Said it felt like the truck had a very solid footing. Well a mud terrain in a wet gravel road is going to feel right at home... lol

Finally was able to put an exhaust on my truck. It only took a week of getting jacked around by Advance Auto and then ordering the parts at a different place to get them. I'm done with Advance for parts! Either I get jacked around or I get the wrong parts!
