i hate wide tires. plus these dig very nicely, where wide tires float.

Do you have to pull the bedsides to mount fiberglass or is there a different method?

For rear glass you remove the old bedside, for front glass you dont have to pull the bedside. I will just to match the look. Im looking at explorer axles and maybe bedsides. We'll see.

Im currently trying to decide what i want to do up front.

im here with mom and her friend. friend had a hip done recently, so shes still a bit weak on the moving around.


TRUCK UPDATE!!! fenders are in ontario, and im trying to get them picked up from my friends house ASAP so they are around when i get back. once im back ill get them fitted then painted. THEN, i decide what i wanna do to my truck.

Oh also im putting a wider rear axle in the truck that i picked up of a buddy for $75. and flaring my bedsides to match the front. the overhaul on that will take place when im back, ill probably go up thursday to pick it up. Other then that, the Ontario ranger club meet is on sunday, should be good fun. Also im going to be doing some regular maintenance on the ranger for the summer. coolant flush and trans flush for sure. also gotta replace my drivers wheel bearing as im pretty sure its blown or about to blow (offroading). trying to thing what else.... oh, tall headrest seat in the pass side needs to go in, and ive gotta do a brake job, im tired of mine squealing every time i stop.


So excited for warm weather, the snow and rain has been retarded.

Pics:



some shells i found in the water


Gonna throw them in my saltwater tank at home, and give the large white one to my girlfriend.
