getting there

Changed out the rear springs, replaced the TPS, replaced the blinker assembly, painted up a spare hood and picked up a set of bucket seats out of a 92(hope they will bolt in the 89, should?) still need to repair one cab corner and a couple touch ups and maybe undercoat. With the new stock springs the truck has a rake to it, so now I'm looking at a leveling kit and will be searching for a deal on some bigger tires. Looking good

put in my new RE Audio REX8 sub in a sealed box, ordered a second one and started building a box for 2 8"s... now working out the idea of removing the 5x7s in the rear as well as the plastic mounting spots so i can make a fiberglass box all the way across the back of my reg cab.. three 8" RE's and a set of 5.25 all classed in against the back wall...

also drove it up to PA to see the lucas oil nationals at maple grove, took my 8 yr old neice to her first drag race.. she had a blast and ended up talking to Dina Parise, she had her in the car (1963 corvette pro-mod) and everything cool event!

Started to pull the Dash apart.
Plan is to remove the cluster, setup the new cluster with the odometer, then mount the new Gauge Faces and if time start the re-install before the day is over.

Then add SMD LEDs to the Aluminum ***** for a brighter indicator and add something like Jp7 did for the Pointers...

Been using it to haul about 50,000 lbs of junk out of 2 houses and 1 business (selling 1 house, moving into another and selling the repair shop) - also put one of these on in memory of my dad:

"Example"


...found out that "In Memory" decals sometimes offend other driver's for some reason.

Today, nothing...

Yesterday, I replaced the rear diff cover and pinion seals. I also changed out the spark plugs.

I have yet to order Bilstein shocks and find out why I'm hearing a ticking sound (don't know where it's coming from just yet).

Damn it was a harsh winter on my poor Ranger.
