get outta my way, I'm falling!
that doesn't look like an Easter egg.

hope the rest of your Ranger is in good shape. that's a big chunk of money to put in an 18 year old truck.

I've spent way more money keeping things much older and less valuable working... Do you know what my prescriptions and health insurance cost every year! :icon_rofl:

It is ! He has got to learn either way , I'm not made of money. It's a responsibility to take care of what he's got. Brand new or not.

1st replacement engine was a bust, getting another. I know it's alot of money to be putting in an 02' but if he can't take care of this what's the "Sense" of buying him a newer truck. Kids gotta learn, my parents helped me but didn't do it for me!

Got the newer motor in , runs good. Current tires 31-10.5-15 thinking of down sizing to 235-75-15 even with new motor truck struggling to get above 70. Same issue as before. Ideas?
