Nope, mine's just stock. Course, I've only had it about 4 months. And yes, I drive all city miles. stop go, stop go.. Tires are 21's Stock as well.

yeah I thought that sounded a bit low too myself. No ext cab, just regular. (And no flare sides.. I think those are so ugly.)

Yeah it costs about 20-25 bucks to fill up. Well.. if the gas will quit going up. lol.
So it has to be a 15 gallon tank. Gas is right at $2.00 a gallon

That's good to know though. Thanks I guess I do need to sit down with a calculator and figure out exactly what kind of mileage I'm getting I've just been busy with other stuff.

I'll put that on my "To Do" list

lol. I get about 22 on highway and 19-20 in city.

Gas here is around $2.16-2.17 a gallon and still rising unfortunately! :/
I get around 265-275 miles a tank which is quite surprisingly high to me!!


...Hey beau. I see you live in Spokane, WA. I live right by there in Coeur d'alene!

If the #5 plug is missing then it might not be faulty spark plugs or wires. It might be that the ignition coil is bad. I had to replace my ignition coil on my ranger because two of the cylinders were miss firing. That was the solution for my case.

Default By george, I think he's got it!

I'll bet you that's what it is James, Ignition Coil. Umhum. I will most definitely be looking into that. THANKS ALOT!

haha nice man. Its almost saturday so you probably got it by now! Sorry I couldnt help :/ worked till 10p.m. today. Yea every time i travel into the valley, gas is around $2.34-2.40. Crazy, crazy, crazy. Just wait till the summer, its gonna skyrocket!!

Now that you got your axle swap, you only need to get an 8" SJ suspension lift, 35" tires, 4.88 gears, and Detriot locker back, with an ox locker front....haha! Gonna be a killer truck when you get all this accomplished! Pics available as of now??

My #5 is missing too. I have changed plugs, wires, and ignition coil. I cleared the engine light, but its still running rough and I can tell that the problem has not been fixed. Suggestions?

Default Re: Faulty Spark Plug Wires?

I see this is an old thread and its probably too late, but I have a 2000 3.0 and my check engine light came on in 2005 and the code said it was the egr. I had it checked out and it wasn't the actual egr, it was the EGR Pressure Feedback Sensor......

Replaced that and the light hasnt come back on since.
