Second time buddy, much quicker! By the way, did the clock spring in your steering wheel break? looks like you have the same dash warnings as i do.

Yes theY are hahaha. No idk for sure. And red ak ranger, there's a tire pressure sensor light and the airbag light on because my aftermarket wheels and expo leather seats. Gonna take the light out from behind the dash when I swap in my fx4 cluster.

And I have already noticed my fuel lasting a lot lot longer. It's amazing

Oh and the xterrains weren't as loud before but now that they're starting to wear down they're getting a bit louder

Even with stock gearing my ranger on 35s and 4.0 doesnt struggle up hill. I've driven from sealevel to 4000 feet in about 20 miles and the ranger has rocked that **** nicely. Even my older 3.0 does fine. I guess it's all about being lucky and finding the "perfect gear".

Gears are deff my next mod though once I fix **** up.

drove the truck to cali this weekend. even going up hills and passing other cars didn't need to kick down at all. stayed in the same gear and just powered on by. and at 75 mph i was seeing 21ish mpg. not too bad imo.

oh and cost 1300 total. and i had 4.10's before
