We had a nice productive day. Installed the 1" body lift, painted my spare door(so it wouldn't look terrible, it was white), swapped my door, and a couple other little things to my truck. We replaced Kevin's cam syncro and MAP sensor.
Thanks for all the help Kevin!

Here's a few Pics..

Cool! Reminds me of a little ranger meet over the summer. I'm glad you guys finally got to do Kevs cam sensor. I know he was talking about doing it back at the at the last meet.

Thanks again John I had a great time wrestling with the trucks unfortunate news being that on the way home my truck had that same problem happen a number of times and I tried unplugging the maf sensor and it didnt fix the problem. I then unplugged the IAC again and it seemed to work fine I'm going to try driving it tomorrow with it removed although till it gets warmed up it'll be pretty fun. Thanks again had a great time!

Yeah you need the right maf sensor...the ecm thinks it's -40 outside...lol It will probably run rich and use a bunch of gas.

Well yeah but nothing really to show in pictures yet. Let me say I got a good deal on this truck and its the newest driver I've had but... it has been a big PITA!...lol First head gaskets, then transmission(no od). Ok so its running good so I figured I'd swap some stuff I wanted to keep. Swapped in the bucket seats , front bumper and valance, drivers door & the cd6. Tires are bad and steers like crap so that was this weekends project. First I discovered the inner tie rods were both shot, swapped em out. Then I found a bad upper ball joint, swapped it out. Next the front brake pads were almost gone, swapped them out. Figured I better check the rear brakes...no friction material left on one side(chewed the drum up), swapped out the shoes and drums... On the bright side I got a good deal on some used 265/75/16's for it. I'll post some pics when I get them on and the alignment done.
