I didn't think I was going to like the location for the lights based on just the mount but it looks ok.

yeah i didnt think so either. but with this sized light, its perfect. and its off to the side, so it wont be throwing light on the hood at all which is good. i think its the perfect spot now that i see it. shouldnt be very visible in cab either.

Since picking it up two weeks ago I've removed the plastic bed liner, prep for and applied a roll on bed liner, washed and started detailing it. I spent about four hours trying to remove the scratches and it's looking much better. Today is step two and then a coat of wax, install tonneau cover and tailgate protector.

Just removed the console storage thing between the 2 front seats, as the hinge was weak and it was just flopping around. Was glad to find out it opens up the interior a good bit and lets me get to the ext cab area easier :)

Fired it up and drove it to the gym.

Poor truck. The ranger and golf have been neglected ever since class started.

took it to the local autobody shop. booked my time to get the truck fixed.
roof will get paintless dent removal, but hood will be done the conventional method, which means repainting.

im getting em to paint the bulge black. always wanted it done. now i get it done for free haha. thank you hail damage gods!!

hit 100k tonight. Funny thing is, this happened driving in Dearborn just past the Henry Ford Museum right in front of all the super secret Ford development buildings where the Ranger was probably once a sketch on an engineer's desk.

my ranger got into a fight with a lowered s10 last weekend.... was ruled my fault... was raining his truck was black and didnt have any lights on.. he had just turned off a busy street 300 feet from the intersection I was turning left at... looked and nobody was coming... started to turn and looked again and he was hauling *** towards the intersection.... I stopped, he achored his brakes and slid into me....


here is the fix up to this point... also lost a hubcap in the accident.... never did find it



about half the bolt holes were ripped out of the valence, driving light was smashed, bumper is mostly paint damage and there is a dent below the pass headlight
