I feel your pain. Splashed a little over the hood when I fell into the ruts in this puddle, hydrolocked the engine and ended up bending a rod. $4500 and a month later to get a new engine put in I'm back on the road


Meanwhile today I changed me wheel bearing on the passenger side, only to find out the driver side is also bad. Just couldn't hear it over the sound of the horrible passenger side lol



Made up a set of race-setter punches at work





Also figured out why my fancy new window wipers weren't working...



....fuck you rainx lol

It's on the list. Flares and grille for now. I'm going to try undercoat on them too. I hear it'll work fine

Drove it to look at a new ranger. 2006 xlt 4x4 4.0 with nice big toolboxes on each side of the box. 93,000 miles. Hes asking $10,800. It was a work truck for a small plumming company. Does it sound good?
