i've been lurking for the past few weeks, while i resurrected Spot the Wondertruck, a '99 Ranger flareside, 2.5L 4-cyl 2wd with 175k mi. it had to sit untended for about 18 mos. (while i dealt with some health issues) and developed a cpl issues of its own. thanks to some excellent how-to info in some of the forums, Spot and i just returned from our first drive in a loooooong time. we may even go afield for awhile tomorrow. FORD makes the best trucks, and i luv my Ranger!
