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

I had a weeks vacation scheduled and had some stuff I wanted to do to my ranger so I took $1000 out of savings to get it done. I changed ball joints, upper control arms, replaced both sway bar links since one was broke. Put on new rotors, break pads and wheel bearings. Bought 4 new tires and had the truck aligned since I put in new ball joints and control arms.
Did all this and was feeling pretty good about my week. I didn't have much going on today and thought I would put on a new pcv valve. The new one wouldn't fit snuggly into the grommet so I go get a new grommet.
Then I figure I show my 13 year old son what is what under the hood. So I am explaining plugs and plug wires and figure I would unplug the plug wire to give him a better idea on what the spark plug looks like and where it is. The metal piece at the end of the boot stays on the spark plug. Crap!!!! So I go get plug wires and on the way home my exhaust breaks at the weld before the muffler.
I just can't win. Sorry for the long rant. The truck has just got the best of me today. The worst part is my wife is gonna be pissed that I spent all that money and now I need a full exhaust. Can't wait to tell her.
