Drove it this morning to take my dog to get spayed cause my car was blocked in by my roommate.
This afternoon, my 4.5" rear lift blocks came to replace the stacked 2" and 2.5" ones on there when I bought it. The electric fan I ordered also came today.

i had adjusted the rear brakes manually, the adjuster cables were broken. i had them too tight and the brakes were smoking when i got to work. the right side seized and and it bent the shoe when i freed it by moving forward (yes, in 4L) i did put new adjuster cables in along with a spring kit and the new shoes. oddly enough, the other side didnt sieze.

Not really what I did to my ranger but what I did for it

Not much but it was boring around work today. Between listing to people complain about their jobs and trying to find one good durmax water pump housing this was my most productive part of my day
