steering wheel & interior shake, tires, and not lifted. Plus, now its leaking a little oil from the oil pressure transmitter since it cracked trying to tighten the aftermarket oil pressure guage sender port.

Can't say I have anything to complain about since I sold it. Life has been a little better without it. Not to mention all the gas I'm saving now.

the whole electrical 4x4 system. I have had nothing but problems with it for the past two years and its pissing me off. No one can seem to find the problem and its getting really old having my truck in the shop for weeks at a time with nothing to show for it.

Ordered up a spare 33x12.5 DC Mud Country, and a 15x8 Ultra Baja Champ Black w/ Machined Lip... Pissed because they called me and said due to company regulations, they cant mount a 33x12.5 on a 15x8 due to it being too wide for the rim for safety reason (errr), and having to send me the tire and the wheel separate so i have to take it elsewhere to mount/balance.. grrrr! Also cost me 7$ more shipping to seperate them..!

Ordered up a 4700k 9007-4 HID Kit + Relays.. Cant freakin wait for them, have been waiting for a long time for them!

P.S. my lovely ranger, i havmt forgiven you for the other day, but today you have steped onto new ground,

i hate that when i turn your **** to go into four wheel drive,after a big CLUNK! it goes in, but when i want to pull out... it gets stuck like a midgit between a 400 pound chicks legs...
i hate that your suspension squeeks like your mothers bed when im alone with her at night...
i hate that your previous owner was a well known drug dealer... but i do like that his girlfriend sold you for 1/4 your value... just to spite him...
i hate that the drug dealer got every option on you... except foglights and comfy seats...
i hate that no matter how much stuff i take out of you or clean... i still find the most random **** under your carpet...
i hate that... wait whats this zipplock bag of "mowed grass" doing under the door pannel?
i hate that you got in the most epic car crash at 3 mph... parked.. on ice.. in my highschool parkinglot.. that onlyscraped the clear coating off... and damaged a mudflap... all while i was in class...
i hate that im stupid and made it phisically impossible to even wipe off your back window...

thats all for today, cant wait to see you later my love,
-----luke

I hurt my fists trying to beat the rattle out of my Ranger. Effing "pressure clips" should have been called "rattle every god damned piece of your truck clips."

I am glad to hear my ranger is not the only one that rattles like crazy. I hate how mine is 3 different colors right now.

Still hate the no pick up in my truck. F*cken slow as *****. Did someone come and steal my 4.0 and put a 3.slow in it?

On a side/good note, finally seeing 14mpg highway. Been a few years since I've seen that (was getting 13 and less).

I've had my 98 for 10 years + and was thinking of trading it for a yota. Changed my mind and put a grand into it, and thought "l'll just keep it".

You guys are making me think I made a bad decision!

Thing I hate most about mine is this "Cam shaft scyro thing" which I didn't know about before I started reading this forum.

If she ever strands me along the road "she's gone".

I kind of did the same a year and a half ago. New truck or quad. Well I'll fix the Ranger and I wont offroad it anymore and get the quad to offroad. Fail!
