And for the record, the 01-03 shroud does not fit inside the 04+ header panel. I tried but it doesn't line up.

I wish I would have seen your for sale ad sooner. I've been waiting for a Level 2 shifter to go up for sale

Flares are back on.




I also repainted the mirror caps.

I have a laundry list of things that I need to fix before the next Ranger meet at the beginning of November.

I also almost blew the truck up yesterday. One of my heater hoses that runs to the PCV valve came off (I just replaced the hoses a couple of months ago) and proceeded to dump coolant all over my motor as I'm going 65 down a major highway. Thought I blew a head gasket until I stopped and realized the smoke was coming out from the engine bay and not the exhaust. Took me a few minutes to find the source of the coolant leak. I was able to refill the radiator because I'm paranoid about losing fluids so I always keep an extra jug of everything in the truck. Paranoia pays off for once. lol. Drove the truck for 40 miles afterwards while monitoring the coolant temp with my scan tool and everything is fine.

I don't want to swap until I have everything together. lol.

As for the 5.0, I don't want to mess with tuners. I want to just be able to swap everything in and go like I did with the manual transmission swap.

I do if I want to run a manual transmission, which I do. My Ranger will never have another automatic in it.

So I did this:



I went with dark gray since I didn't want anything bright this time around, and I hated the way my gloss black Fx4 decals looked, so this was in the middle. I'm happy with them.

Also did some painting:




Control arms and tie-rod ends:

Put on some color matched door handles. Looks much better in my opinion.

You do. It's so hard to find a decent set though.

Love the HIDs, fordzilla. If you don't mind me asking, where did you get yours? And did they come with that little retainer that forces the light to reflect off the housing or no? Awesome truck!

Much better with the flares. Edge decals kick ***. I need to get my orange ones off, where did you get those? Like the painted stuff, yay! and the door handles look much better. Think that catches me up.
