Back in Action

Got the truck back finally. Here's what got done so far. The truck feels brand new and i'm broke i had to dish out my tire savings for some of it so it looks like I'm rolling on the generals for a little longer but that's no big deal because its aligned now. for the price of all this i could have SAS'D or even bought another ranger but nope i just flushed more money into it here are some cleaned up pics. It was in the shop for 9 days and all that shop dust yuck.
Transmission Replaced, small shift kit installed
New Radiator
New Trans AUX cooler
Rebuilt T-Case
Lower Ball joints
Upper control arms
Bilstiens all around
Driver side front axle
2 front hubs
New Calipers with Green stuff
Complete rear brake over haul (everything)
8.8 overhaul kit had lots of slop and play

You mean your debating on tuning your truck again? Or debating keeping the xcal?

Good to see you got your baby back.

So I take it that your truck is driving a lot better?

Do you have any regrets not trading it in?
