    D35 swap driveshaft length

    What transfer case you have? If it's the 1350, then there was a factory shaft from a Ranger with the FM145 or maybe TK5 that was already an inch shorter.

    Question about Engine/Transmission Spacer Plate Compatibility (and where to get a replacement!)

    Actually no. The starter is in a different place on the auto vs manual.

    Black With Blue Forum Style Template

    FYI: If you had that set, it defaults to a very jarring white on next login.

    Cylinder head question

    I'm gonna recommend replacement heads pre-assembled in this case. Check ebay for rebuilt parts (probably from Odessa) or local junkyards for used ones. I'd seriously wanna know why valves are bad on an 04. Run with no exhaust? High miles?

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

    They look like a hybrid of 90 Ranger and fox-body Mustang.

    Windshield question

    Dang. Ya'll's winders is expensive. LOL Here I average $175 for new glass installed from the Carlex factory outside of town.

    **HELP!** CAN’T LOCATE CORRECT BACKING PLATES!!!

    All over in Explorers. Not so much Rangers, but; maybe you'll get lucky. The Explorer swap isn't hard if you wanna do it tho. I bought the Ruff Stuff simple swap kit But, just a new pair spring perches and u-bolts will do. You can even use the Explorer spring under plates for the shock mounts if...

    Adventure offroad park

    Looks like there are couple of them. Seem to be mostly geared to ATVs though.

    Adventure offroad park

    Sounds reasonable to me. I might have a friend from work coming with 4-wheelers and in-laws there with a couple side by sides.

    80's Ranger 4x4 for the Trails

    I've had good luck cleaning engines by adding one less quart of oil and using ATF (Dexron/Mercon) for the last quart. Usually washes chunks out the drain plug. Will stop up a filter if you leave it too long tho. I drive it around 100 miles with the ATF in it.

    Grant steering wheel question

    Grant apparently does offer some aftermarket wheels with airbag support. Might be the way to go.

    Adventure offroad park

    If you're in middle TN, we might be able to get a regular convoy going from BGKY north..

    Ummm. Who does this?

    I've seen it done to '93 D21. Was really funny. Almost as funny as the 35-13.50 tires. On an otherwise stock 4cyl truck.

    Body to frame adjustment

    When I wrecked, my body was far enough off that it damaged the driver fender on the bumper and bounced all the way back into the tire. Soo yeah. It could definitely be off by that much.

    TRS 2021 Fall Off-Road Round-Up

    Nah. The only website I had was my MySpace, GeoCities, Google Sites mash-up in about 8th 9th grade. I found that with a Google search. I don't intend to get into anything too rough as I gotta drive it back home. So I'll probably be doing as much or more spectating than anything.

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

    Pull-A-Part is a good place. Getting harder to find the older stuff in Nashville tho. I've been hitting them up for Ranger parts since their ad was all women and the slogan was "Best little strip joint in town.". Honestly wasn't sure what to expect the first time I went. Figured since it was me...

    Problem with my tachometer

    I'm confused. Can you do a short video?

    OHV Valve Cover Replacement

    You can probably get the bolts out without taking intake off, but; it's gonna be might difficult to get the valve cover high enough to snake the new gasket in there without messing it up. Might just check the torque on the valve cover bolts. Mine like to work loose every couple of oil changes...

    2.3L ('83-'97) I’m a dummy and broke a bolt

    Looks like it holds on the FEAD? If so, I'd guess it'll be ok as long as everything else is place. Hopefully someone with more 2.3 experience can chime in...

    TRS 2021 Fall Off-Road Round-Up

    I am going to try to make this event. Depends on work though. Recently started a new job so I don't know if I can get off. As for comms, I have a couple of handheld CBs. Like this GE 3-5980. Would they be helpful or not enough range for this trip?
