Thought about doing a lot of things from the Want Listing but got to none so far.

Too many Wants and no time to do the list.

replaced the bolts that go through the battery cable clamps, removed the rusty step-bars and front mud flaps. going to re-finish the step bars this spring. the front mud flaps i may trim down some and put back on. the dragging noise was bugging me when id be at low enough speeds for them to drag.

Well I didnt plan on ever doing anything to this ranger as its my DD and I have other projects but hey we all know how that story goes. A buddy of mine sold his ranger and had a stock pile of old parts so I wheeled and dealed for some stuff I thought would be cool

First off I got new tires today, not really impressive but hey they hold air so better than my old ones ten fold. Also painted the dirty rusted gray wheels up nice and black. But id rather find aluminum wheels


I got some 01-05 (think those are the years) tails installed


Also some better mirrors, I dont see the 06 mirrors looking good on a non-lifted truck so I went with the older style but they are better than my little paddle type mirrors


Now for the different part, The previous owner was a real character and he believed in painted vents and whatnot. Well I finally got done with my undoing of the red vents, red switches, red door panels, and the GD passenger airbag was red. Well I replaced the vents and painted the door panels and airbag. I know two wrongs dont make a right but hey I think it turned out rather well. FYI walmart flat black almost matches the factory black perfectly




I know its the usual stuff but ive had the truck a month maybe? lol

Switched the wipers, put the cover back on the bed and topped off the washer fluid. I added 5 lbs air to the tires ( 37 lbs)...see if it picks up any mpgs. Might get to that oil change Wednesday.
