Connections are tight, and I'm gunna run the battery back tomorrow to have it checked. Too tired of dealing with it now anyway.

Chris, I've actually been thinking about dumping the Ranger and buying another Bronco. Problem with that is finding a lower mileage Bronco for the same price I'd get for turn around for the Ranger. Also, my Bronco's beyond DD status at this point.
