    Idle issue - About ready to sell this old girl

    This whole problem started 3 weeks ago. I started my truck and let it idle for about 5 minuets and took off down the road. About 1-2 min later when I went to put the clutch in, it stalled as it went down to idle. Tried 4-5 times to start it, and it ran like normal. Drove it another 1-2 min and...

    Vacuum tubing?

    Where do you guys get your replacement vacuum tubing? My truck has the plastic lines that connect with rubber connectors and the only tubing I have been able to find locally is 3ft long which isn't enough and I really don't want to put a rubber splice in the middle. The guy at Autozone told me...

    Recovery Bible

    Found this little gem while researching ways to recover an ATV I lost off a cliff. Found it pretty useful, figured others new to extreme recovery that takes more than a winch or snatch strap would benefit from the info. Maybe we can make this a sticky or put it in the tech library if people find...

    First and Second Gen Body lift differences

    Anyone know if there are any differences between body lifts for gen 1 and 2? The 2" body lift is $50 cheaper for the gen 1 than the gen 2. The only place where I can see that it would matter is in the steering linkage.

    2.3 to 4.0 dash harness

    Swapping in a 4.0 to my 91 2.3 ranger. My question is if the dash harness connector (big white connector) is the same on all engines for my year or if the 2.9 and 4.0 differ from my 2.3 on the dash side. I can find that the 2.9 and 4.0 interchange but not solid info on the 2.3. I assume it does...

    Bumble's Build Thread

    This is going to be my build thread for my 91 Ranger "Bumble". The name came about because the suspension was so worn out when I bought it that it bounced off-road. And from the Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer Christmas special, we all know that "Bumbles Bounce!" I have owned it for just over 2...

I currently don't have my EGR connected, and I passed emissions (live in Utah) and it doesn't throw a CEL. In my reading of the EGR, I have decided that I want it...
