I am very capable of doing it, just got to figure out which I like more.




The trucks now even CLEANER then it was!!
I just used some 3M Perfect It II, some Meg's Swirl Remover, Meg's Show Car Glaze with my buffer and hand waxed it, OH MY LORD it looks amazing, and WET!!!

Its in my garage and my capri is outside under 2 car covers LOL, it is raining and I don't want the truck wet after the hard work hahahhaa

Look at your hood, that is what a powerdome is. That hood is worth big money. They are the best looking ranger hoods ever made. Your hiding it with that bug guard. Take care of the new truck. Looks good man.

Figuring this stuff out little by little LOL, and yes, I love the hood!!!!

I think the hood deflector will come off for teh summer and back on for the winters, that is what I did on my S10 just to save the hood from chips.


Anyone know what this hose it tied to my brake lines? Sorry for the blurry pic, I can take another later if needed.

It could be. If its a rubber hose that goes all the way down past the engine and winds up into the front axle/diff.

Just get under your truck and look above the front diff. you should be able to see it.
