Averaged my first full tank of gas with the new 1999 ranger. Got 20mpg with it. I'm impressed!

One in a garage is better than a few in the weather.

Put gas in my Ranger for the first time in 2 months.
My DD is my 89' Ford Festiva now and I use my Ranger to haul things with and drive every now and then. I still love my Ranger and will never give it up. You just can't beat 45 mpg compared to 25 mpg.

Went to the junkyard and got a explorer rear axle with 4.10s and limited slip and only 136k miles on it. Also picked up the front axle so my truck will have 4.10s now.

What is the problem with the Wilson CB Antenna ?
They are one of the best CB Antenna Manufacturers in the Market today.
Just curious about any problems you might be having.

What did the front end run you ?
I have been thinking of getting one and have the gears installed, then just swap it over.
With the Front Diff on the bench it should be easier to work on, maybe a better job.

I actually had no problems with the antenna. It's a great antenna. I just wanted to change because having the stainless steel post up there scares me. That's why it came off, the branch hit the post and took it off. Ok I probably shouldn't use a Trucker Ant on a magnet mount, but it's what I had. But yeah it's an excellent antenna.
