Nevermind the limited slip differential. I will buy a small fridge for the garage.

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
Every once in a while, I have a moment of weakness. I pick up a wrench or a screwdriver. Sorry!
There’s already a thread to discuss what you did to your Ranger... next time you feel the need to work on your truck, please post it in the correct thread. Save this thread for when you DONT do anything to your Ranger. Thank you.

Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
I have about 6 months of doing anything to either of my trucks... except shop and spend money on stuff for them.

Really looking forward to getting back at it.
Does spending money on it count as doing "anything" to it?
That's some gray area you're in there.

Well, I don't buy flowers or candy for it, but I have been known to pick up some Turtle Wax and some microfiber towels.

Mine has been parked for over two years ,now. The last thing I bought for it was a V8 Explorer donor. I "plan" on putting tires that hold air on it so I can maneuver it into a better position, so I can actually work on it. It broke a valve spring and i fell into the TRS rabbit hole.

You gotta be careful. Next thing you know, you'll be swapping axels, putting disk brakes on the back, lifting it, and putting on a new coat of paint.

funny.
I will NOT be lifting it anymore than it is sstock. It's an "Edge" so it's got a little lift. If anything, I will remove those blocks and level out the nose for a more "lowered stance"

Buying stuff for your Ranger isn’t technically doing anything to it. It’s more like planning on doing something to your Ranger.

Those lift blocks are a pain, but that belongs on that other thread.

This is true, maybe we need a thread for when you buy stuff for it?

I thought about filling the gas tank... but didn't. I predict locally gas will be over $5 a gallon by Monday.

Gas jumped 20 cents/gallon overnight and now most stations nearby are at about $4.50/gallon. Good reason not to do anything to your Ranger. Doing anything is getting expensive. :)
