    I think I almost had a heart attack!

    So today I was bored at work and figured I would look up a new battery and get a price on it since we are an Exide dealer. My battery of choice was the Exide "Northstar" Part number PL-AGM65M. It's an AGM battery that's a direct replacement for my Explorer. Gave the boss the part number and...

    4.0 OHV to 4.0 OHC swap

    So... as we all know, the probability of finding a good "used" 4.0 OHV engine is becoming scarce as time goes on. Where I am, the OHV engine are rare to say the least...

    How hot is too hot?

    Just got finished installing new 4.88 gears and I was wondering just how hot is too hot for a differential to be with new gears? As it is now, if I take it for a short drive (as per the instructions) the differential gets real warm to the touch... not a burning hot, but warmer than warm and...

    Dana 44 SAS 2wd

    I have been looking into that swap also. From what I can see, your gonna require a minimum 6 inch lift to make things clear. Clearance issues are around the engine cross member. Other than that, seems like a far cry easier than swapping in TTB.

    Tera Flex Revolving shackles

    I'm curious... has anyone here ever tried Tera Flex revolving leaf spring shackles on the rear of a Ranger? It looks to me that it would be a great idea to increase articulation in the rear. Any feedback would be great!
