Default Re: What did you do to your ranger today thread

put a sunpro gauge in and for any of those looking to install one i found a easy way to do it without going into the engine bay
The tach signal is on TAN/Yellow and it goes from the PCM to the instrument cluster. You will probably also need keyed power (RED/yellow), chassis ground (BLACK/yellow) and illumination (LIGHT BLUE/Red). You can pick up all four behind the cluster.

Aftermarket tachs are often universal and need to be set for 4, 6 or 8 cylinders. Check the instructions.

Happened once in an old family Mustang, out in the cuts and we just shot the deer with my Ruger .357 from 1989, That's almost animal cruelty
letting them walk off after getting hit! Lol. Glad you didn't get hurt

Got the cross rails for the roof rack painted. Still trying to figure out how to mount it and still keep both cross rails and the visor. Might have to cut them and re drill and tap holes but idk yet

Not today but over the weekend (I've been to busy to post) I washed, detailed and waxed it, plus I took out the drop in liner, sold it, and that paid for four cans of spray on liner and a Butter Burger from Culvers.

I used some things I had laying around.
Free shorty works perfect.
Not sure if I should make a "how to" on it as I would probably just get a lot of redneck comments. Lol

Yesterday I watched helplessly as a 16 yr old kid rolled his ranger right in front of my house. He didn't get hurt thankfully. But when the cops showed up he did admit to drinking a pint of whiskey AND smoking marijuana. What is it with kids these days????

SAS me?

It's not the kids. It's the parents not raising them right. Kids don't get spanked anymore.

Too many are doing this positive reinforcement crap...ignoring them when bad, and giving attention to them when good. Like you do with pets

A lot over the last two days!

Yesterday I changed the oil and rotated the tires.

Today I replaced a burnt out third brake light and fixed a loose connection for my cargos, and then redneck fixed my automatic gear indicator with zip ties!

Tomorrow I will be replacing the drivers front wheel bearing and installing new sway bar bushings.

Mine sat at work for two days while I drove the company van for 8 hours to Annapolis for a "team building" scavenger hunt. I hate switching from my manual to automatics so much.
