This work on my ranger was on Wed

I had one day to return a Ryobi portable table saw to Home Depot, found on Craigslist a $900 Craftsman hybrid Table saw, the Ryobi cost me $210. The owner of the Craftsman wanted a portable saw, so traded the Ryobi + $50, so i get a saw worth about $600, way better that the saw I was going to return that very day. After we nearly broke our backs loading it into the my Ranger I drove off without tying down the beast. I have no idea why, I had my ryobi tied down and the robe in the bed. I think I was so excited on my windfall, I simply forgot. I don't think I drove 100 yards and was only doing about 20 mph had to tap the breaks due to a speed bump, POW! Sounded like a shotgun blast, the saw rip guide bars slammed in the ext cab rear window, the safety glass held and kept me from having a 3" rod hit me in the back of the head.

So what did I do for my Ranger, I paid $225 for my stupid mistake and replaced the rear window.

I have a saying that I must have said to my kids a hundred times: "If you ain't thinking your stinking". Well I sure stunk bad on Tuesday......

Lol, that sucks. Sounds like a good deal for the saw, but I guess you made up the price difference having to replace the window.

Just finished changing out the rear breaks. Never worked on drum brakes before and the first time is a pain in the ass.

Hey man, start a new thread. This is kinda the wrong spot. On a seperate note, where the hell were you when I was in Montana trying to set up a meet in Montana! I lived in Havre, the butthole of America!

Put a beefier weather seal in my 3rd brake light.

And found a Superduty 3rd brake light for $20 out the door lol

That makes me glad because the last time I saw one for sale it was TrePaul selling one for $40
