    Genius winter driving hack for truck owners

    I gotta say this guy is on to something, but I don't think there is much room between the back bumper and the spare tire on my Ranger... judging from the photo, this looks like an early Dodge Dakota with the 8 ft bed Keeps the bed free as well. AJ

    ok so I went to a chiropractor today

    I have been having some weird intermittent back pain for a few months and decided to get it checked out... She asked me if I had ever been beat up by a girl before... and then proceeded to contort me into a pretzel and jump on top of me. (not in *that* way you pervs) I don't know what kind of...

    1961 Ford F100 Mustang GT motor and Ford Ranger dash/ steering wheel. I gotta say, they did a good job. they even made the extensions to the Ranger dash look somewhat natural, but I think I would have made a...

    Size of the castle nuts for both the tie rod ends and the linkage to the pitman arm

    What are the sizes, and where do you get the bastards? the hex nut I believe is 21mm, but what is the thread count and pitch, and what is the bolt/ stud size? my local Autozone does not carry any castlenuts in their hardware section. I don't see them online at Tractor Supply either, they just...

    weird shuddering or groaning when applying brakes

    97 Ranger. Brakes were done in April 2016, rotors, pads and wheel bearings and all new hardware. brakes work fine, I doublechecked the pads and rotors, they are fine, and the noise doesn't happen all the time, it is mostly at the end of the stop. putting on the brakes at speeds higher than...
