My credo
Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
I took more Vulcan related parts off of it. Mostly bolts and brackets but making headway. Getting ready for a v8 swap is daunting when you dont have a garage or proper work space.

I've been collecting parts in the mail: coolant temp sensor, engine temp sensor, oil pressure switch, borla headers, 02 sensors, and i'm waiting on headliner fabric, glue, and a double camera for the front and rear. Let's rock.

My credo
built, not bought
once it quits snowing (yes right now it’s snowing in central ohio) im going to load it up with supplies to swap out my mailbox, back it up to my current mailbox and start on that job. right now I have a conventioal steel box on a round 6” pole and am changing it to a plastic step2 box (with a rear door) that mounts to a 4x4 post. Going to go as deep as possible, pour in some quickcrete , cut off the excess post & attach the new assembly. these boxes are $60 or so new, got mine for $5 last weekend from someone who changed their mailbox stlye.

We got about 3 inches of snow over night... still snowing now.

A few days ago... I wrenched my back. So with the snow and my aching back...I'm not working my first Friday in a long time. I'm a bit limited on Ranger stuff I feel like doing.

I think I'm going to pop the grill off my truck and install my T-Rex grill insert. I need to run out and see if I can find a bottle of touch up paint... might do a donut in the parking lot of Advance Auto

Situation normal, in the garage on jackstands.

I did get my insurance card for it yesterday though.

Put a new brake light switch on it yesterday. Coming home from work Monday night, noticed people behind me were getting awfully close. Backed it up to a fence, and while they still worked, had to really push the brake pedal hard to do so. But now, I can't get the damn ABS warning light off. I didn't do anything to the ABS. I removed the switch, unplugged the connector, plugged into the new switch, put it back on the pedal lever. WTF?? Maybe because I forgot to disconnect the negative terminal on the battery before doing this? Disconnect and reconnect the battery, light goes away?

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Is your fluid level ok? Probably a coincidence.
