My truck started bucking pretty bad when cornering last night and this morning. So I checked the brakes then the diff; and have found my top spider gear to be "slightly trimmed" on half a dozen teeth.
Is it possible to remove the S spring and pull the bad spider (or both) and run it as an open...
I thought this was pretty cool. On warn's winch site the front picture is of a pre-runner Ranger with their new ZEON winch. I saw an ad in a couple of magazines with the same picture too.

If your looking to get a 3.0L, try to get one with 4.10:1 gearing. This goes very well with the motor design, similarly to the four cylinder Rangers.
Longevity and the maintenance needed will vary depending on previous owners maintenance habits, as previously mentioned.
Driving cycle, driver...
Anybody in the area, or been there, know of some good places to eat, enjoy a beverage or ten, etc. I'll be heading down there next week and would like to hit some of the local restaruants (not all the big chain ones).
