I have been thinking..What should I do ?
So to get this started I was not to sure where to post this. I thought this was ok because this is my new Idea.
Lately my 99 ranger has been frustrating,I am sure that they all are at times. The one think I notice the most thoe is the spark plugs. When I first got the truck I did a "good tune up". Well at the time I did not know to much about spark plugs. For some reason the sales guy sold me Bosch Platinums. Well it was only a few months later and I got my first "CODE" The first time my CEl came on it was a miss fire code on #4. So I pulled the plug out and sure enough..The porcelain that is inside the threds around the electrode was totaly gone along with the electrode. So not 1/4 of the plug is in the cilinder. I went back to the store and got all new plugs. I ditched the bosch. So I got something else..Auto light..I know they are cheep as well.. I am still learning. Now a few more months have gone by and what do you know, the same thing happens. I all most think the piston in #4 is is hitting the top of the plug but, The metal tip is not bent at all. So now I have more plug in the cilinder.. I kepted the plug out and fired it up for just a few seconds hoping to blow the parts of the plugs out. This last time I learned my lesson and Bought Motorcraft =). They are working great so far.... But, Now a few more months have gone by and it is all most like I can hear some kinda "Knocking" at an iddle. I am not sure if that is what it is or not. My wife tells me I am crazy. But, I can hear it. So this is where the new Idea comes into play.
I have been thinking about selling my 99 and paying it off. I only owe like 5g's on it now,Maby less. Then once I sold it I would buy a new "Old" ranger. I was thinking about getting a 95-97 so I could have the TTB.(TTB right?) insted of the IFS. If I had that I think I would just run a 6" skyjacker.(also much cheaper then the IFS Lifts) and it would be payed off. So I was wondering with your guys help what should I do? Sell the 99.? What Ranger do you guys feel would make the best yet still nice looking trail rig. That I could still drive on the street every day?
