i love my truck but its currently a couple thousand miles away from me and i dont think it ll run when i get back. so i ve decided to start another one. i cant actually start wrenching but i can have it all planned out and get together all the parts. figured i would get y'alls opinion on it
i used to be somewhat active on here a few years ago, but its been a while since then. after i stopped being active i wheeled my truck alot and then joined the corps.
now im stuck on okinawa and since i cant play with my truck i decided id save up and start planning to build another playtoy...
i did this
a little while back, and among other things got mud in my k&n cone air filter that i had slapped right onto the throttle body
i guess when a air filter gets so muddy that it cant get air it creates some sort of vacuum that crushes the cone air filter like a can.
I called up k&n and...
so lately the truck has been having problems with holding constant oil pressure.
I ve decided ( mostly due to fear of other possibilities) that the problem is simply too much bad oil in the line and in the oil filter.
my buddy said to just put seafoam in it, so i went and grabbed a bottle. now...
I ve been looking for replacement body mounts for my 1989 extended cab ranger
napa and kragen ( i was desperate) didnt have em
and the only ones ive been able to find are from the ford stealership but they want 40 bucks each.
anyone find decent body mounts elsewhere?
so i must have parked to close to a toyota cause now the ranger dont want to stop
im pretty sure its the throttle return spring as it is not pushing the cable back to the start position, seems like its a stupid easy part but doesnt look fun to replace, any hints?
also the cruise control is...
Ive been looking to get a solid tube bumper for my 89 ranger but i
havent had any luck so far
I dont have the skill or tools to fab one so im stuck buying one, other than
finding one used ( which i would prefer but havent had any luck) where would you guys look?
So heres the deal i got 3, 30 inch bfg mud terrains with about 25% tread off of a buddy
and I have just enough cash to buy 2 , 30 inch dunlop mud rovers from a budy for the distributor price
the question is worn tires in back good tires in front , so that I have more traction for turning
ran the mojave road
pretty mild but a blast
unfortunately i lost a tire
not to many pictures cause not to many stops
fun water crossing - Im an idiot
airing up to leave
So i am starting with my stock 89 Ranger, 2.9l v6 supercab.
It is my daily driver so while I am building it so that I can run trails and have fun it sort of has to stay practical.
so far I have bought skyjacker leveling coils, new shocks, and add a leafs new
and found at garage sales or...
two kids in town tried to rob a subway and got the piss beat out of them by the employees, just like it should happen.
funny thing is I knew the robber who got beat, he was a nice guy before he became a tweaker.
anyone else have it?
drives me nuts, its almost 2 and i leave for work at 0530
and ill be lucky to get to sleep by 4
i refuse to take pills and nothing else seems to work
anyone have any tricks or anything that helps?
I was considering a body lift to get more height to clear tires and you guys suggested replacing the coil and leaf springs and that sounds like a much better idea. ive got about 300 to 400 to spend
A few questions:
I am looking for around 3 or 4 inches of height to clear larger tires, what...
sounds kinda dumb but living in california i have to drive about a hour or so to get to snow, ive driven on a couple inches of snow and some ice and am sumwhat comfortable. However I have yet to drive in deep snow / narly conditions, and since I am planning on doing so soon I was wondering if...
Went night muddin with a budy and had a f@wking blast
He got his 86 chebby stuck and I learned that my come-along isnt worth crap
if what im pulling is heavier, all it did was pull the ranger closer to him
but i was able to yank him with straps- thatll shut em up about ford for a bit
