Bought back the wreck, and now I have a one car junk yard....plus this today...04 FX4LII, stick and bucket leather. Now I gotta figure out how to convince the wife to let me have the Ranger back.......WAY more plush than the Heep....

Yeah, there's a thread on here about it. I'm really quite jealous, I got to drive the truck home and I really miss it. We're getting a mint black cap tomorrow. Found that local two days ago, things just fell into place on this one.

truck's got 96k on it, but the freaking thing runs and looks great. I normally would not get a truck with that many miles on it, but I have a soft spot for the FX4....especially that damn leather bucket seats! Plus, I have full faith that I can get 200k plus out of these trucks, IF your wife does not wreck them!
I'm going to rebuild my old engine (may be locked due to running while upside down), trans, etc, so I'll have backups of everything. I plan on runnig a Ranger until we die!

I like those gauges too, but... they have the digital odometer, and our 03 and older trucks have a analog odometer. I haven't searched, but I've never seen a solution... anyone know of how to use 04+ gauges in a 03+older
