    Rapid Flash Brake Lights for Gen 1

In my opinion it was great, got my attention immediately, and I was able to brake sooner. So I looked up on line and found a site that sold these...

    F-50 Ranger

    Ever since I got my ranger pickup, a friend of mine who has an old F-250 ranger constantly gives me crap about having a trucklette as he calls it.

    Wow! what a way to spend a Sunday. Had a lot of pulsing from the brakes and a nasty humming noise when I would turn to the right on the highway. bought brakes, rotors, inner and outer bearings, and seals, and I'm sure glad I did. The right side rotor was cut in by the pads and warped. The left...

    Transmission swap Question

    Need a new tranny for my 88 ranger ext cab 4X4 2.9L (FM146) and can not find one readily available. Saw the instructions to swap out to an m50d from a 4.0L 91-00 ranger and was wondering if an m50d from a 93 explorer with a 4.0L would work? :icon_confused:
