played with some bumpers my dad built me a couple years for my S15 to see how they would look on my ranger.. not bad so im going to swap those. should probably go over across the road to a friend's house and grab his fan, water pump and leaf springs off his explorer that he's scrapping. oh and finished painting the bumpers.

Picked it up from the body shop. Drooled over the new paint on the pass. side bed, the new bumper, new teardrop rim, and new black bumper pad (mine was white from UV rays). I then was told I need a new upper control arm bushing and a wheel bearing. :(

I then drove her home and threw on a new Oakley "O" sticker on the front windshield and my new clear corners. I also just (few minutes ago actually) two 194 Chrome dipped bulbs for the corners and two 3157 chrome dipped bulbs for the turn signals.

Now i just need to resurface my pass. side headlight.

stared at it for a minute, kinda zoned out while staring, thinking about how dirty it is and how clean it would look with a camburg 6.0 performance kit with a body lift and 35s...

It wasn't today, but two days ago...I pulled the bed to check the crack I found in the frame while I was replacing the rear shocks. I happened upon ANOTHER crack when I got the bed off. Talk about a kick in the ***. Here's some pics:

holy thats what my truck looks like!! same color, bumpers, headlights, etc.

finished taking off my bumpers today, found out that my rad support is rusting.. figured out how im gonna mount my other bumpers.

went over to the neighbours house, helped him scrap some paint off his 80's firebird, then came home grabbed some tools and the wheel barrow and went back over and grabbed some parts off his exploder. i got an alternator with bracket, belt tensioner, rad, fuses, headlight bulbs... tomorrow im getting leaf springs, water pump maybe a couple door handles. its a shame that i cant bring the expo over to my house and strip it right down as there's a ton of good parts still.. interior is like mint. bucket seats up front 60/40 seat in the back. hopefully getting the rims as they are in decent shape and look good on my truck (i've had them on there before), but if i take them then we have no way of getting the expo on a trailer.

FINALLY!!!!!!!!

I got a alternator for the truck came off a 2008 Ranger with 2,986 got it for 45 dollars

I was there at 8am when they opened and they didn't have it off. Guy said his guy wouldn't be there till 10am to pull it. I didnt wanna wait around and asked if I could just pull it my self. Guy told me if I signed a waiver to not hold them responsible if I got hurt while doing it.

Went out there and truck was a mess. I pulled the alternator and then figured what they hey wonder if they would give me the grille it was busted in a couple spots but nothing bad or noticeable. Went in paid for the alternator and asked guy said sure u just drove 1 hour to get a part I doubt that grille will sell anyways




Here is a picture of the truck was real easy to get the alternator off except my back hurts from bending over
