Got some parts from Andy.

today i put on my new ac line, but gotta get a wire thing figured out before i have AC again, good thing a cold front just came in. lol

put in a new thermostat and the expo radiator. filled up with water and ran it to clean out a little, tomorrow draining that and filling up with the green stuffs.

oh, and my ranger shroud didn't fit on the expo radiator, so i had to cut it up a little to make it fit, the expo is 2 core and twice as thick as the ranger 1 core one.

it should be good yet but i'll keep that in mind.

you probably don't have the wires for the AC high pressure switch eh? did you even have the AC on your 5.0 hooked up?

Well today i got new lifts for the topper, now i don't have to clamp a wrench on for it to stay up :P just been procrastinating on that.

also picked up a real oil pressure gauge, and ordered a gauge pod for it tonight, should be installed by next week.

In the future, yes i will have onboard air.

but the gauge pod this this.

Amazon Amazon

just takes minor trimming for it to fit correctly for the ranger steering column.

Yeah, it's for an F150. I've had one in my truck for a couple years now and like it a lot. I don't think I had to do any trimming to get it to fit however

Funny, I would have thought the F150 unit to be larger than the Ranger.

Does anyone know where i can get a tee fitting that goes into the block for the oil dummy light on the dash?

i added in a real oil pressure gauge, but i want to have it tee off and have both of them hooked up. can't find anything in town here and searching on here didn't find me much, but i swear i've seen something on here before.

You could just go and get plumbing fittings and do it yourself

Not much new, did some grinding and painting of my rack, i'm going to wait to get it sand blasted and painted till spring, figured it would last a little longer if i didn't have it sitting outside in winter right away.

this month i'm really working on my financial stuff so i can pay off student loan, credit card, and my boat. i'm looking at getting a house in the somewhat near future.

but i should be getting in the mail today a wiring kit for my 4x offroad lights to hook up to the stock fog light button the radio bezel.
