I went to Firestone to get an alignment and have them check out my tires. I had some cracks by the bead and other places on the sidewall. I hem/hawed for an hour and decided to buy some Destination LE's....the guy gave me a discount over the 5% you get with the card. Left the truck with them and told them I'd be by closing time to pick it up. 30 min till closing, they call me and say they got 245/70/16 tires instead of my stock 235/70/16 tires...and to make me happy, he'd give me some Destination A/T for the same price...deal! I pick it up tomorrow with some new tires.


Mine: '98 Ranger XLT 3.0L SuperCab w/ manual 4x4 "Off Road" 193k miles
Wife: '07 Mitsubishi Outlander LS AWD 3.0L 128k miles
My 3.0 puts out 150HP...hers puts 220HP...something is wrong here!

I've got some step bars to put on to help protect the leather seats. I'm also going to measure the front tonight and order a leveling kit.

Removed the fog lamps since both were blown. I will be getting some better ones and gonna use one or both old lamps as reverse lights.

Next step is fixing the dent on my front bumper and then paint both front and rear bumpers. I just don't know if I should keep the gray or go with the red or black look.
