Speaking of Rangers on the side of the road, I stopped and helped a guy with a 96 or so Ranger, same body style as mine... he had a broken u-joint, the rear drive shaft was hanging down, lol. It snapped the side 'pegs' off of the center of the u-joint body.
It was covered in mud from top to bottom... and was riding on 33's. I think it had a BL.
So I pulled the tools out of my truck box and let him use them to pull the drive shaft. He got to drive it home rather than leave it on the side of the road or in a parking lot.
It was a cool looking truck. Manual transmission as well. Probably a 3.0 or 4.0, not sure which.

Wiring, it's all fun and games until you poke yer eye out with a soldering iron...
