The fact that I don't have my solid axles under there yet.
The wires running everywhere under the carpet suck.
The fact that I still have carpet.
The fact that I still have doors.

And the fact that I still have a bed and what I consider too long of a wheelbase.

I need to get to work!

I Love my truck though because it's got 50,000 miles and is in great condition, and get some compliments here and there about it. I'd like to sandblast and bedliner the frame though. That'd be nice.

rack and pinion is leaking check engine light is on and i don't know whats causing that damn dtcs a growling noise from the front end and both the wheel bearings are new and still good. tranny doesn't shift right though i have been getting better mileage since the check engine light is on cuz its running lean. wanting the problems to be fixed so i can feel good about buying a body lift rather than the necessary truck parts

well im glad to see that my truck's not the only one that needs a little "loving".. haha here's my list:

-water pump gasket (or water pump not sure yet)
-front axle shaft u-joints
-driver's door panel rattles
-bumpers are tweaked
-tailgate is tweaked
-havent fixed the side of it yet from when i slide into a chain link fence pole(did a gooder on that one... have pics if interested)
-broken rear leaf springs
-rear passenger hub is bent (course gotta replace the axle shaft too)
-ball joints are worn
-needs tires
-the fact that i smashed a brand new taillight.. yup replaced the **** once already..
-that its not lifted
-thats its not loud enough.. (was thinking of straight piping it soon)
-and that its not a brand new one... haha
-it has some scratches from wheeling it up mountains
-the fact it has stock tires
-the fact that i cant put my offset chevy s15 rims on it
-the fan is about to go

hmmm what else... ya my truck needs some loving, but its kind of hard to do when you dont have a job.. i can get the leaf springs, front axle shaft u-joints,water pump off a friends explorer that he's scrapping.. probably will take his stock steel rims too for winter..

I have to take it to the dealer to find out why the parking, tails, fogs, and dash illumination don't work. I tried replacing the headlight switch, but that didn't solve the problem. And I can't find a fuse for any of that.

that it sounds identical to my friends civic at 4 grand.
that my friends VW rabbit gets more power out of a smaller engine.
that the window cranks rattle and squeak no matter what you do or how much WD40 you use.
that there's never anything in truck magazies for us.
that my grandma's minivan sits at the same height.
that my CD player can only read mp3 discs if they're techno or gangsta rap, no metal.
that it has awesome bass, unless you want to listen at any considerable volume.
that everything is so ******* expensive for it.

The lift is still not completed…
Wheel Bearing Packs - one bad one making noise, replaced two - $500…
Upper and Lower ***** Joints, MOOG Over-Sized Joints on top - $200…
New U-Bolts for the New Leaf Springs and no blocks - $60…

Too much money that wasn’t planned on…

Finished truck lifted with 33 KM2s - priceless…

Although this isn’t something the Ranger did, it is something I hate about the truck right now, $$$.
