    Wheel Size and Availability

    94, 3.0, Auto, 2wd There is a 14" and 15" option on this year. For 15" x 7" wheels: Do they look the same as the 14" Are there other Ford vehicles that have the same size wheel (with the same bolt pattern)? I have read threads talking about a depth issue - I'm looking for...

    Heater problems

    Are both of the heater core hoses connected? When the engine has warmed up do both of the hoses get hot? If one is hot and not the other you may have a plugged heater core. The good news is: If you have to replace the heater core this has got to be the easiest one in the world.

    Tire Question

    I'm not really a fan but Firestone seems to have the best price here. Just under $300 for the 195's, installed, out the door

    What did you do to your Ranger today? (Part Deux!)

    Front Seats

    Seat is in....YEA. I made it way more work then is needed. 93 to 99 (I think) Passenger seat to replace drivers seat. Note: Yes I know it doesn't match but it was $10 and it's in real good condition. Here is how to do it. 1. Get a passenger seat. Make sure you get one with all the...

    Floyd passed his yearly inspection. Always iffy with a 94. NC at least lets us do a modified inspection on vehicles over 25 years old. They don't check emissions.

    Front Seats

    Well I'm making progress .... I think. Both seats are apart. Frames are apart and seperate from the seats. Will put new seat on frame from my car tomorrow. As I look at it I'm not sure how I'm going to handle the position of the seat back.

    What did you do to your Ranger today? (Part Deux!)

    Floyd got his new seat today. Picked up a passengers side seat to replace my drivers side seat. Put an ad on Craigslist and so guy had this in his garage - was going to do what I'm doing but sold the truck. $10.00 can't beat it.
