Decided it was time (and warm enough) to take the sand bags out of the back of my Ranger for the season. I don't wanna see them until next winter! Truck sits a little higher without 300lb in the bed.

Got a trailer for it to tow my ATV so I don't wear out my truck and so I can keep a tonneau cover on all year.

Cleaned out my interior last night, and super glued my center console lid back together someway. It was more busted that I had originally thought, and did the best I could.

Well.. I just got back from pulling a ford explorer out of the mud. My friend buried her up to the doors so The rescue ranger got called to work.
Pulled it like an f-350

Well I spent the morning washing the truck! Then used some duplicolor perfect match (primer,base and clear) to touch up some big scratches and chips. I must say i am pretty impressed with it! last step is waiting 48 hours so that I can take some mild polishing compound to it so I can blend it just a bit. After that was all said and done I re-candied my Mazda taillights. detailed the interior and re adjusted my amp and what not got everything ready for summer!

Gibson exhaust install:

Installed and sounds good. Very quiet with a slight hint of grumble. Overall driving is smooth, like OEM, and looks nice underneath.











A little mud baptism :)

Looks good!

I drove mine 100 miles today doing my second job. I'm a sales merchandiser for Nestle... Stock pizza on the weekend. It's a part time job for "fun money" Get paid a decent hourly rate, plus mileage.

I also discovered my truck already has a flat 4 trailer installed on it. It's a factory one, and I don't think it's ever been used. The plug still looked brand new. Now I'm going to have to get my hitch soon.

Finally did the fog light mod. Probably wouldn't have if it weren't for a very interesting situation last night that made me wish my lights were brighter, but I got it done and really like how the fogs flash when I lock the doors :)

Had to bring a tire into my work to have a plug put in it. Drove my 1953 Chevy pickup to work though and paid $4.60/gal for gas for it... that was awesome!
