I don't know about yours but my 99 Ranger has the blinker so low I hit it with my knee. Lol. It's like the truck was made for guys under 5'9. 😜

That tears it. I’m tired of searching for random tech that I remember reading like this, I’m writing all this crap down in a book for me to flip through. Currently on the hunt for where I read about shift kits for the A4LD and why they were a good idea and decided to break for a minute to browse the forums and here we are, lol

Toonces drives a Ranger . . . . just not very well.

I save a lot of stuff I come across on my computer, organized in subject folders. Been doing this for a while, as I got tired of going "now where in the hell did read about that?" It's really handy, as my CRS keeps getting worse the older I get.

I was doing that until I started using my tablet all the time and the desktop computer went down. Haven’t got around to fixing that problem because vehicles and tractors were more important. I’m not finding it as easy to save and organize the stuff on the tablet. A lot of stuff is quick little tech stuff that would just take a minute to write down and if I organize how it gets put in the book, it would help a lot. I also have a binder with stuff I printed out to give reference to so I have something handy to refer to when I’m turning a wrench. All the pages in protective sleeves to keep grease off the pages

Has anyone ever tried just taking it out and flipping it over? That way it curves up.

Be careful; there might a law against doing that, whether you're in public or not.

Been awhile since I had one out, but I want to say the way it mounts and all make that not a viable solution

I don’t remember this ever being a problem for me though and I’m 6’, so I’m kinda curious as to why this seems to be a problem for everyone but me

I ride pretty close to the steering wheel I'm not gonna lie. Especially in a manual transmission. I want to make sure that pedal HITS THE FLOOR. LOL
