sooo, your callin me a IDIOT. and who are you? the ranger god,mr. know it all
That's what I've been wondering...

I'm surprised I was never told to stop using my four cylinder since I've joined.



Btw, I used my mom's pickup ('90 4x4 2.9L) to tow a car 230 miles through the Ozark hills last month, and the only problem I had was that I forgot to check the transmission fluid. It was getting low enough that it should've stopped working, but didn't. Then again, it wasn't a problem because I made it all the way back.

Well it starts, so the problem with the P/N circuit must not be too critical.

My credo
A legend to the old man, a hero to the child...
Awesome to see someone give the 2.9 some love.

Take it from someone who use to have the title "Official defender of the 2.9", no one around here likes that engine....I really dont know why...everyone ive ever seen has been a tough lil engine that will work its ass off for ya....

At the end of the day it was your time, your work, etc and if thats what you wanted to do then so be it.

I for one think it is cool.

later,
Dustin
