xmas for my truck

i just ordered gifts for my truck 4 kyb gas-a-just shocks and a 4.56 ring and pinion. I cant wait to see how it rides with the new shocks and to get some power back with the ring and pinion.

KYBs? If i was going to spend a chunk of money on shocks I would get some Bilsteins. They can't be THAT much more.

I agree, he posts in almost every thread. Most of his responses aren't even helpful at all.

OP: good choice on the shocks.

1. I am here because I own a Ford Ranger and I enjoy working it, I also enjoy passing on the knowledge that I have learned from researching and foruming to other people that need it. This is also a public forum so I am entitled to be here, just like you, just like everyone else.
2. Yes, I am a punk high school kid. Probably for another few years.
3. If one does not want opinions and comments from the other memebers then don't post a thread. Period. PUBLIC FORUM. This means I can publicly ask questions and state my opinions as much as I want, within reason of course. As long as it is on topic and follows forum rules I am free to post it up.

I have a lot of opinions and a lot to say. Sorry, I don't keep it to myself. And my posts helpfulness is irrelevant.
