Ok I'm going to do a What Did I Do Over The Past Month Post.

First I bought it, then I installed my Alpine and 2 1200 Watt 12" Kenwoods in a Dual Box powered by a 1600 watt amp, then I installed new rotors and pads, then I gave it a tune up, cleaned the throttle body, changed the oil, installed a Dynomax Super Turbo muffler and dumped the tail pipe out the side before the rear axle, then I installed the toolbox my dad gave me off his Ranger, then I replaced the headlights with silverstars, then I had a new windshield put in, then I took the brand new battery out of the Jeep and put it in it, then I had to put 2 new oxygen sensors in it, then I tinted the front windows to match the back and finally after a months hard work and a lot of money later I changed the thermostat.

And some pics just cause I like to post pics of the truck.

Went to the local dragstrip last night ( Palm Beach Int. raceway) to watch a friend run his Nova. Saw a first gen Ranger running 9.4 @ 145. Then as I was about to leave I saw an 01- 03 stepside ranger with no badges, I thought to myself, cool someone to run against with mine next week. Until I heard the Turbo Diesel spooling up and smoking the hell out of those tires.... Don't know what he was running in it but it was a hell of alot quicker than me. He was somewhere around 11 sec 1/4 mile and I don't think he was trying too hard.

I washed and waxed mine saturday. This is the LAST Red Ranger i own. Sure it looks nice when its clean, but it shows EVERYTHING!! i am also mad because i found a few knicks and scratches from the mild offroading i did this past winter. I guess the newness is gone now! I feel sorry for those with black ones!

Installed some fog lamps. Cleaned the interior. Went to the countryside and had some bbq. Messed all the interior. LOL.

Today, I'm experiencing this rough idle before full stop... rpms are high for a sec or two... imma clean the IAC valve and see if it fixes my problem... i'd clean the MAF sensor, but I can't find MAF cleaner...
