lol i was just down at the kings river over the weekend and got it all dirty shuttling the raft upriver ... so i was gonna wash it today and they said it was gonna rain, so that sucked cause i had to unload all my camping gear last night instead of this morning.

so right now i spent the morning driving around in grandpas 95 4.0 xcab 2wd auto, man that thing is fast (id never drove a 4.0 till now) and if you hit the gas too hard from a stop youll be leavin some number 11's lol ... changed the oil, had a smog appt for 1030am and the places evap machine locked out, so he said come back at 1pm, so in a little bit imma have to take another rip down the freeway to warm it back up ... hope it passes, has close to 200k on it and its the damn test only smog

What can I do!

Went to the parts store to get new frame bushings for my truck....I was told there are three different sizes of font sway bars....... Can anyone narrow the choices down for me?
The new link pins with rubber bushing made for a much smoother ride to work today.

Thanks,

Sold my Subwoofer setup. Now tomorrow I'm going to order the power door lock and power window kit for my truck. Then Friday I am going to the junkyard and getting the explorer seats, console, overhead console, power mirrors, the door panels for the ones with power switches, and maybe some other things.

^^ hehe seriously. A LITTLE BIT of my rear end ended up in somebody's turning lane, so they honked at me (it wasnt a big deal seriously). I guess they were in a bad mood or something. So the light turned green, and i "accidentally" spun a good million feet in second gear. not trying to be too hard on muh teyers.

Well today I did as I said I was going to do. I woke up and money was in the bank so I ordered the power window and door lock kit. I then decided I would go to the junkyard today. When I got there there was a 2002 Mazda B4000, 2004 Mazda B4000 and a 2005 Mazda B4000. One had a brand new hitch on it so I took it, I also got the newer tail lights, got a passenger power mirror. still need to get the driver side none of the rangers or Mazda's had a driver side. I also got the door panel pieces that have all the switches.

Thursday when I go back there was an explorer there with the electric seats, center console and overhead console, So i' going to take those. I do however need to find a lid for the center console cause none of the explorers had any.

the other thing to grab when you go back is the wiring harness off the tails on em, im told its different than the 94-00 b tails.

Do they have any 01+ grills? like this


if so let me know a price shipped to 94559

No the only difference is they switched the turn signal and backup wire. So all you need is some electrical tape and some cutters. Just swap the light bulb holders between the backup light and turn signal. Don't need to buy none of the wiring harness.

Also I got them installed before I left for work and they looks awesome.

And no all the mazdas there were in front end impacts. Or else I would have bought a new grill for myself.

Don’t use Electrical Tape for anything that has to do with exposure to the elements, CORROSION will happen in sot order.
Always use heat Shrink with adhesive but after you have tested the circuit to make sure it is working.

Chris98/Melt, So I don’t have to read the other 83 pages to this thread, will you tell me the plans for the harness/tail-lights ?

Ok next time I get some time I will buy some heat shrink and remove the electrical tape. I will try and get pics of it today or tomorrow.


Edit: Ok I made a little how to on how to swap the tail lights.

Went to the junkyard and bought two leather power seats out of a Explorer, center console and a Overhead Console. Also my Power window kit arrived today and my locks will arrive tomorrow.

I will be installed the power windows tomorrow and will hopefully get to do the seats.
