Alon got down on my danger ranger. *PICS*

Replaced Upper/Lower Ball Joints, Tie Rod Ends, Bellows, Spark Plug Wires, Stainless Steel Brake Lines. Couldn't get the water pump pulley off but he tried his best. I'll try to find someone that can get that damn WP pulley off.

Anyway here are some pics if your bored














Thanks Alon!!

we were going to do pulleys but I had issues getting the fan off.

I put the truck on the trailer to take it to the alignment shop. It wasnt too far off from when I aligned it in the garage, but I had the trailer out from a job in the morning so I figured I'd just tow it there.

Ranger is running like a champ overall now. My balljoints were pretty shot. Replaced out almost everything under there now and it's nice and tight. Going to rotate my tires and see if that fixes my alignment issue.

Yeah man I'm working on it.... $$$$... but to be honest it handles great, smooth, doesn't bottom out and does alright in the whoops. Can't smash too fast but I can go a good speed to be honest if that makes sense.

Here's a video before I got the glass and stuff, I gotta get some updated ones though:

Alon did a great job and it wasn't too expensive. But like always he found some stuff I didn't know I needed to replace so I paid double then what I thought I was going to pay lol.
