Blew the front passenger brake line Tuesday and parked it for the week.

Pretty sure this is an s10 topper. Screwed some 2x3s to raise it up a bit and it hangs off the back a couple inches. Itll do the job for now. Need to find a rubber flap and some magnets for the back then ill be happy till i find one made for a ranger.

Been really content with it as of late. Only have a couple more to-dos but its ready for winter duty as is. The DIY bumper is on hold at the moment. I want to take my time and make it nice(ish) and i dont want to roll around without a recovery point until winter passes. To build it i have to cut off the old hitch since its welded to the frame, then make a cardboard template, then burn it out, and weld it up.

Tossing around the idea of throwing a bead in a couple of spider gears kinda like a poor mans LSD but not a full Lincoln locker before winter.

Really need to do a 06+ ranger mirror swap asap. I have to re-adjust mine back up every 3 days or so.

Hopefully by next spring/summer i can find a carpet that will clean up and a lund lighted visor at a junkyard.
