I work in fuel tanks for a living. Don't judge me!
Installed 1.5 inch wheel spacers. Wanted 1 inch but couldn't find any in stock. Got these from Amazon. Slapped them bad boys on at lunch. Now see if wife notices hahaView attachment 57946
I hope you used some thread locker in the OEM studs. If not, I would highly recommend using blue. It will hold the lug buts well enough to make sure they don’t loosen up on you bit won’t hold them so tight they will never come off. Clean the threads in both the studs and the nuts too.

One of the perils of spacers is that the lug nuts can come loose behind the wheels.

I used red is that bad. I'm not too smart about different types of thread locker. I had them come loose on my sport trac and sheer 3 studs. They were spacers for a mustang so thought it was due to different size studs. So I wanted to be safe. My family rides everywhere in my truck.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Red is stronger than blue. Might require heat to remove the nuts later.

Blue is for keeping things snug. Red is for keeping things together forever.

Got a message from Ford Pass this morning saying I had 22,000 points. I figured it meant 22 cents or maybe $22. Swung by the Ford dealer where I got it, it's two blocks from my work, told the salesman I got it from how much I liked it and how much is 22,000 points? He said about $100 so I walked back to the parts department and ordered the raised black letters for the tailgate. 👍

My dealer doesn’t participate in that program but their prices are usually pretty decent as well. So, not a big deal.

I used mine on the Ranger rubber floor mats. Not as good as weathertech but walked out without paying a penny. So that was pretty sweet

I just got the carpet delete so I don't have to worry about it. Of course, I did special order mine in order to get mostly what I wanted. I like the vinyl floor so much I want to order one for the 2011 and rip the carpet out of it.

I hit a turkey in mid-flight on my way home from work. Both Ranger and turkey appear to be unhurt. Turkeys maximum altitude is about the height of a Ranger hood.

Used it as a temporary parking spot for a canning machine that arrived at the brewery my bud is going to open soon.

We had a couple of issues. The semi couldn't back up the driveway far enough because his landing gear was going to hit. Also the pallet was bout 11' long. So we had to inch it out of the semi and onto 2 pair of pallets to get it over the wheelwells in the back of his truck, SLOWLY back it up the driveway, put two pallets in the back of my Ranger, tie off the pallet with the canning machine to my bed hooks, pull his truck forward, then grab it in the middle with the forklift. This part was the hardest and most time consuming but we were McGuyvering all sorts of shit this morning.
