My "new" (to me) truck

Haven't posted here since forever lol, but I'm back, with a Ranger! 👍

2000 xlt 4 door 3.0L w auto. Has some extra goodies like bluetooth radio, LED tails, LED light bar and a sub with amp. Very well kept by previous owner. Has new tires, suspension components and cooling system. I love this thing!







I installed a mc guard tailgate lock an replaced the crappy aftermarket horns with OEM 2010 f-150 units so it sounds right as it should.

Holy moly!

That radio looks like the flight deck of a Boeing 777!

Good find!

Update

Yesterday I installed a 180 superstat with felpro gasket. It had no t-stat, and it ran way too cold. I also gave the throttle plate a cleaning. Was way too filthy.


Also the driver's side window regulator was busted. I hate those rivets.






Finished installing the new one today.

Next on the list, fix/replace the power mirrors. I'm wondering if the ones on the 2006-11 will fit. Kinda like they are way bigger.

I cringe on the teeth on your regulator. Ow.

About those '06 mirrors, here's How-To post on that.

Compare the mount on your stock mirror to the '06 mirrors here and see if they're similar.

Best of luck!

I've never seen a regulator go that bad before. Thanks for the link!
