2 days ago, I cleaned the MAF sensor...the throttle body...the IAC.
Yesterday, I replaced the plugs with Autolite AP5143's...replaced the fuel filter. Today, I waxed my 2005 XLT Ranger...took the dog to the vet...loaded up my Ranger for fishing tomorrow. Will have fresh bluegills for lunch !! What's not to like...I love my Ranger....gets better mileage now too.

stripped down exhaust system as the manifold gasket and manifold/turbo gaskets had blown. What a difference - more power & less noise

went to a custom upholstry shop to see about getting some broken snaps on my tonneau cover fixed, dude carried out a little tackle box and a "snap press tool"
and just started doing it without telling me how much, then i pointed out some of the rail snaps were broken, he handed me the tool and told me to re-tighten all the remaining covers snaps, then he comes back out with a handful of rail slide on snaps,
i asked him how much, and he told me "have a nice day"
didnt charge me shizzle, cool as hell !!!!!!
(i did take a look at an older quadrunner that is shocking his grandson when he rides, wittled it down to a bad coil)

then i pulled my K&N filter outta the SB CAI, called advanced auto and had them dorp off a K&N recharge kit at my buddies repair shop and cleaned/re-oiled my filter
damn it was awful dirty

plugs/wires and all 4 shocks are next, then universals, all just as routine maintainence
think i need a tranny mount too, i feel sumthin funny

Last week I switch out all my turn signal bulbs
To 3157 19 count clear LED bulbs,
But than my relay flasher made the LEDs do a hyperflash.
So...today I switched out the original flasher for a
Tridon EP27. Problem fixed! Thanks STL !
