If you click on the link in my signature, you'll see a photo of the driveshaft and the yoke separated, and the damage from hitting the underside of my truck. I took it to a local guy who extended the driveshaft 2" which worked great, but the U joint was nearly bottomed out with no articulation. It had enough and nearly snapped in two on me right before my wedding. For now I'm back to driving on a stock driveshaft that looks like it has cancer.

If you have an empty passenger seat this saturday, perhaps I can fill it. I don't have any plans as of yet.

Looking at the specs, my Ranger is bigger than yours, but its also at the shop getting a new front axle... I think I killed it with the abuse I used to put it through. Hence why I have the Bronco now, trying to save the daily driver.

By the way, sorry to hijack your thread Walter.

These pictures were taken 3 years ago. I ditched those tires and put on 265/75/16 BFG's. (Can't locate any recent pics)

I just recieved in the mail yesterday my Black Grill Guard (I have set of PIAA 540s that are going on it), a new Black Bumper (ditching the chrome one) and a new Lower Valance.

The lower valance is gray. I am toying with the notion of keeping it gray, or painting it black or green to match the truck. Any opinions?

I also have a Bug Deflector just waiting to be put on, but also toying with the notion of painting it green or keeping it black.

I also have sitting in my garage 2 pairs of KC 6x9 Long Range lights. I am just trying to find something to mount them too. I also have a pair of Pro Comps sitting in my garage.

No. It was actually in Berkley Township. Some powerline/fireline trails. It gets the job done most of the time when I need some wheelin action.
