Ditched my 06 tails and got a pair of 93-99 Spyder LED tails because I didn't want to do the 3 to 2 bulb conversion. Best decision ever. These ******* are bright as hell. The running lights are brighter than the factory 06 brake lights. Also its nice to have backup lights again

Finally starting to mod the Taco.

Put in the standard D-cell maglite mount in the cab. I was a little tight butthole about drilling into my brand-new-to-me-still-a-baby 2010 truck but it's mine and it's staying so I went for it. Mounted it a centimeter crooked and spun the bracket around with the drill leaving a nice circle scratch on the plastic. IT'S GOOD TO BE BACK!

Also bought a shackle receiver hitch.

And a standard Smittybilt 20ft tow strap. Everyone says get the 30ft but its double the price and I don't plan on using it except in an emergency.

Now it's time to save for a bed chest! Northern Tool is my dealer of choice. Great local company.

replaced thermostat

My Ranger was idling a little high, and gas mileage has dropped a bit lately, noticed that my temp gauge was barely getting above cold. checked my Scangauge and water temp was only 140 degrees, and it showed a code pending, got a new thermostat after worked today and threw it in, everything is back to normal now.

Dropped the front differential due to the pinion seal leaking, so decided to replace all 3 seals as well as drain it thoroughly. Replaced with Amsoil 75W-90 severe duty gear oil, so it should be fine for a while :).

Replaced both front wheel hub assemblies, both UCAs and both lower ball joints (Moog parts and regreaseable). Just had it aligned and all it nice and square.....bring on the snow!

Got a cheapy tool box for my first responder equipment and recovery stuff.
Just need to get some brackets tomorrow to bolt her in.

I ordered all my usual personalization stickers. Gotta rep for my state when I live in SC haha. Got the OSU cling since I'm moving to Michigan this year.

Got underneath with some Rust converter and a rattle can to touch up the PO salt damage. Gotta love northern trucks.

kind of a butt clenching moment



where it has to be cut for the 4406 T-case shifter. I didnt get a finished pic as I dont like my shift boot. Tell ya what though its close to your leg the way it sits. Full size truck components definitely fit tight in a ranger
