Well starting tomorrow morning she gets torn apart to go back to stock mostly :( Taking the 4/5 drop off and going to a 2/3, taking the grilles, clear headlights and corners off too. It's all for a good cause though

Checked mpg averaged 21 for the month last month. Towing the boat Sunday I was horrified by 11 mpg. Almost time for a bigger truck. Good thing I don't tow often.

Changed the fuel filter. That was "fun", glad I don't have to do that often. Quick disconnect, my backside. It was a little harder to blow through than the new one.

Sometime this and next week: Oil change, maybe change hoses, cooling flush, new coolant. Check the spindle nuts, it is wobbling again. Find out why the intermittent P0303 code. Under hood wash. Got a rental compression tester at Autozone. Please Lord, not a head gasket.

Escape, I'd love to hear how that goes. I have been considering putting in a new headliner, maybe Mossy Oak camo. What are you putting in?

I have no clue what I am going to put in. I am going to hit up the hobby shop tomorrow or an auto interior shop and go from there.

Also try Joanne Fabrics or a fabric place like that. They might have something interesting. Neon orange fleece, Tartan plaid, red satin, lol.

Keep us posted then post pics. If you want plain Jane then Pep Boys and Autozone have headliner replacement cloth.

Oh, i just changed the oil, flushed the radiator, and changed the PCV valve all in the dark. Hope I got it right.

as we all know, the ranger/f-150 badges always lose the black inside, anyone black out the outside and keep the letters chrome?
