Well while the family was still asleep I snuck out and made me a portable fire pit. No more cold mornings at camp in the woods no more haha

Well yesterday I went over and worked on my father in law's Pathfinder. I put new brake pads all the way around. Somehow it threw the inside passenger side pad out. It was completely gone. I also did spark plugs on Zane's new ride. Unfortunately it's a Nissan Morano. You have to pull the whole top air intake off to get to the back plugs. Well after that I must have left my phone on 1 of them and during the test drive it got slung into the road and ran over. Drove into downtown Nashville to get the screen replaced. Which ATT said they had 1 to only discover it was for a red phone and they couldn't put it on a black phone under warranty. So wasted a few hours driving to find that out. Luckily I had my old S8 so slapped the sim card in it and low and behold I'm back in business. ATT called later and said they are sending me a new replacement today with an upgrade to a S22 since they dont make my S20 no more.

Drove out to Ohio to celebrate Thanksgiving with her parents and family. They like me better than her. So, I won’t have a problem. She might but not me.

Lincoln and I took Big Red 40 miles up the road to pick up another trailer axle. 3500 pound, 5x5 hubs, with all the hangers and springs and U clamps, etc. 50 bucks.

Finally found an ear Doc to unplug my right ear - impacted wax up against the eardrum. A month of ear wax cleaner did nothing. Rooting around in there by a local ENT nurse was extremely painful and useless.

Luckily the Doc was willing to shoot up my ear with numbing stuff, dug in there with what looked like a dental pick, and pulled out an amazing hard lump of wax.

I can hear again - whoo hoo. 'Course now I cannot plead not hearing to the wife!

Its probably better to be self deprecating than self defecating.
Went by my uncles and finally put the truck on the lift to see how bad I screwed myself by buying it 🙃


It's not much worse than I originally thought. The day I bought it... it was a GORGEOUS sunny day across the entire state... except for whatever TF town It was I bought it in. THERE it was raining an inch an hour lol.. so needless to say I didn't lay on the ground and crawl underneath it.

It needs a bit.. but nothing too terrible.

Gonna swing by Sunday to change the oil and probably the diff fluid.. well see what else. Perhaps take it for a rip and see if my valve cover gasket replacement took hold 😋 also finish up getting some video clips for its introductory boobtube video.

So… I got ambitious and walked down to my property this afternoon and then I got to looking at the 92 and now I have ideas. The “I have a torch and a welder” kind of ideas. I’m not convinced it’s a bad thing. But it might be a touch crazy. Oh well…

The front, right bearing on the 2011 is complaining a little. It's got 103,000 miles on it. So I can't complain. I have a bearing, hub, and ABS assembly on order. The truck will get parked until I can change it. I guess the 2019 is going to hunting camp next week.

you have to be careful if you’re considering modifying the Ranger from its original design.

Dish, spill the wisdom. I’ll guide you if it’s too weird & violates the integral beauty and function of what is “Ranger,”. And @Robbie can guide you regarding voiding the warranty
