    Good fabricator in NC?

    Not sure where to post this but I'm looking for someone who can fabricate for me. Stuff like tube frames or custom suspension setups. Life is not at a point where I have much time to tackle projects of that caliber.

    5v sources on 1988 ranger?

    I know that there is a resistor in the gauges that converts 12v to 5v, but is there any other places on the truck that gets 5v? Im having roughly 5v bleed into my turn signal wiring lighting up the rear LEDs dimly.
