  1. Trouble finding front valance for a 2006 Ranger

    So I decided to get a new valance for the front of my 06. It has a hitch installed so when I got the new one I held it up and marked where to cut some notches for the tow hooks and all that. Of course when I went to put it on it is too short on the ends and the tabs that hold it on don't match...

  3. Changed thermostat housing now runs rough

    Just changed the housing and sensors last week. I took off the throttle body and idler pulley to get it in and out. The inside of the throttle body was filthy so grabbed a can of what I thought was TB and carb cleaner and gave it a doosh. Also when I installed the new housing I notices the...

  7. Need gauge advice

    Now that my truck is ready to hit the road, I need advice for the gauge problem. I have read a few different things about the gauges in the 05 and 06 and they are all different.

  10. Nees tool for torsion keys

    I bought the c clamp style but its not deep enough to go around the cross member. I have seen 2 other styles one has a flat spot on the top and the other is round. I already tried a floor jack and a 2 arm puller so now I give up and will order the tool.
  11. Limited slip or not?

    Can't find any info so I'll have to ask. 06. 4x4 4.0 8.8 rear with 4 10 gears. Nothing on the tag about limited slip. Is it or not? Will it hurt to add the modifier if its not an LS?

    Except for my fuel line set back I got some new stuff put on. First project was the shackles for the rear leafs. Half a can of penetrating spray, 3 hours with a torch and a lot of cussing I got the bolts out and the shackles on. Then it was time for the new hitch. I didnt have my kids around to...

    Well i put a new fuel pump in and of course the fuel gauge stopped working when I did. I went out to take the new pump out and one of the clips that holds one of the lines broke.
