No, they mostly just peeled off. I eventually discovered that the cleanest way to remove them is to peel them off left<-->right quickly. They tear into strips, but leave very little glue behind.

But when I was experimenting with different techniques, I ended up with a good bit of glue left behind. I used really sticky tape to lift some of the left over glue, and then dabbed a little bit of GooGone, followed by more dabbing with a damp cloth, and yet more dabbing with a dry cloth.

Cool - I hate 'dumb' guages. I guess most people get nervous/confused when the needles are moving around all the time. The last car I had with a full set of 'real' guages was my 1990 Pontiac Sunbird Turbo.

My truck only has fuel and water temp, but I don't think I want to get into installing a full set of analog guages.... one of those elctronic gadgets that plugs into the ECU and displays all the same info is more like what I can handle doing.

Removed the last cat and replaced it with a high flow cat then put on a y pipe with no mufflers and angled the tail pipes out the back and put on 3 inch tips sounds so much better!!

Explain this two tank conversion...do they have a 2 tank conversion for your style of Ranger?

Two things to keep my fake yellow top relaible.

The ugly looking box on top of the + post is a voltage monitor that shuts off power if I leave anything switched on or develop a drain. The coil of wire with the button will be hidden in the cab and allow me to shut off power manually.

I gotta do a more integrated install now that I've proven that the monitor will work.

The module on top of the battery is a conditioner to prevent internal buildup.

Took it to work and getting off at 3pm. Then going to junk yard to see if I can't find anything good for me to pick tomorrow morning. If not, tomorrow I'll be installing my new amp.
