Brought it to dealership for replacement weather stripping on passenger side and then to Rust Check to get it oil sprayed for the winter. My parking spot is drenched with mineral oil now... second vehicle to be oil sprayed in as many months.

You should just undercoat it and be done!

Problem with undercoating is, like everything else, starts to age and crack lol. Google Rust Check or Krown... makes more sense in case you decide to keep the vehicle. Or if you do keep getting it done yearly from new then it's guaranteed never to rust, and it's transferrable to a new owner if they get continue to get it done annually (1 month grace period allowed).

But undercoating it well will last a LOOOOOONG time. I undercoated mine last year when I got the truck, and it still looks brand new, no cracks no scratches.


Also, I just put on my new "4.0L SOHC" hood decals:

Holy cow Adam, your junkyard looks like heaven compared to mine!

Took the truck to the dealership mechanic, and as I thought, his automotive knowledge was on-par with mine. Wasn't of any help at all, as transmissions were not his specialty. It's a wonder trans shops charge so much, because they're the only ones who wanna touch transmissions.

You have no idea. There's about 25 rangers there and roughly 50-60 explorers... ask Clinton, he was there.

Put a new head gasket in one, a little body work on another one, and wired in a relay for my electric fan.

Clinton, my first thought was sure move right in! But then I decided against it because our trucks would look like crap next to yours

removed clogged up cats and replaced it with a single unit. used stock flange then welded 3" tube, reduced it to 2 1/2" hooked up cat and cheap glass pack.
sounds ok but boy does it run better. day started out just to replace the clutch master cylinder, but since that went so easy it did the cat as well. tomorrow should do the blinker mod and install the new hids that santa sent me
