get busy! I just went through the pictures again, looks like a nice clean install. I like it. Though I have no advice for the surging idle. lol

haha... hopefully i can get a vid this weekend.

Re-timed and re-set the fuel pressure last night. Seems slightly better but not much.

Also ran a code check and it has a idle air control valve fault so i will be pick one of those up on the way home.

that may correct several idle issues all by itself.

Yea i just havent really had time to use it. Its kinda over built for the trails around here. Anytime i want to use it to its potential, i have to trailer it 6+ hours.

I am leaning toward buying / building a 2005+ mustang weekend driver / open track car.

good luck with the sale! was a great inspiration to many around here I'm sure.

Well, Chris' Ranger had changed hands a few times and has made it's way into my shop.
I bought it out of Chattanooga TN about 15 months ago. Since then I have replaced, upgraded, dialed in a few things. I have to say this rig was designed and built right. Aside from my own touches, I haven't changed any of Chris' suspension build. I did paint it and use it as my shop truck at Carolina Axle and 4X4 in Fletcher NC.
I did add an Atlas and a set of RCV front shafts. The driveshafts were changed for a set of .250" DOM units and I have corrected the engine tuning issues.
It gets wheeled HARD at least 2 weeks every month and has been through Harlan, Windrock, Durhamtown Tellico, AOP and in quite a few small races.
