Would the wiring harness be the same between our trucks? It's been a long time since I looked into that stuff.

I guess the days of having a badass stereo are way behind me. I'm that boring guy that justs keeps it on FM radio these days lol. My aftermarket headunit is old and the volume always goes down when I turn it up haha.

Haha fair enough. If it were me I'd just swap the headunit for a newer one. No point in down grading unless you don't want to drop the cash haha

Took the spacers off after doing some research on scrub radius. Those large heims sure do cut it close though, it's got like a 16th of an inch of clearance on the passenger side.



Removed the rag joint from the steering shaft. The steering feels a little more solid which means a bit more vibration is felt but it's less mushy when initiating a turn.

Damn that's close! I'd rather have the solid steering with a little vibration than mushy steering

Yup!

Took a video of the axle while driving. I really just wanted a way to see what was going on while it was going down the road, and to see if anything looked wrong.

I have found your problem!!!!


Not enough dirt under those tires lol

Looks like everything is working as it should and not binding up.

That's always a problem, any local forums that do events or trail runs? Though to find time with the family too I bet.

Naw, offroading isn't very big around here. The people I wheeled with before moved away, and family definitely takes up a lot of time. I figured I'd get the truck set up well enough to drive on the street without being scared to death otherwise it was just going to sit and rot away.

Good plan! I'm sure it's a head turner on the street! Family is the most important anyway. If you ever make it toward the northwest I'd be happy to show you around!

Strap the car seat in there. My son had a blast when we went. His favorite part is just being in the front seat.

The Ranger got a new place. My wife and I had been looking for a bigger place for close to two years now. We weren't in a big hurry because we both had certain things we weren't willing to compromise on. For me one of those things was a shop, what we found was a house with a regular 2 car garage as well as a large garage. Both are attached to the house. We've been in a few months now but life's been busy so I finally found the time to share.

Congrats on the house! That garage looks plenty big to do everything you could need to do. Definitely jealous.

It's cool. It's big enough to pull the F250 in and still have room to spare, it wouldn't even fit in my old garage. I actually have room for a workbench now and it isn't a chore to get the Ranger out so I drive it more now too.

Love the shop, I'm jealous of the tall ceilings. That's the only thing I'd change on mine

Yeah 12ft ceilings. The doors are 10ft wide and 10.5ft tall. The Ranger barely fit through the door at the other house but now it's got a lot of headroom.
