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

Just ordered two new corner lights that should be here by noon. Even though only one melted I want them both to look the same. I am not going to do the mods on them but rather tape off the orange reflector part and lightly shade the exterior on both.

The replacement black and chrome lettered gel overlays should be here today or tomorrow, and once they are on, I am done for awhile on wrecking my new truck! So, after a couple thousand dollars or so and a huge amount of time pouring over ideas and how-to's, I am reasonably satisfied with the way it will look and drive.

Short list of mods since being bought brand new this summer:

TriFold Tonneau cover
Locking tailgate
Smoke tinted license plate covers
AirRaid CAI
FORD floormats
Cherry Bomb exhaust system
31x10.5x15 Firestone Destinations
Torsion Bars cranked
GE Nighthawk Platinum headlight bulbs
Fitted vinyl sport bucket seat covers
Removal of rectangular Ford Ranger emblems
Mercedes Benz font lettering (4.0L V6) on left tailgate
twin chrome front fender vents
9 inch black with chrome lettering FORD ovals front and rear
Black highlight painted factory wheels
Black headlight mod
Tinted taillights and brake light
Painted calipers, shocks and crossover
Chromed FORD script interior trim
DRL switched from low beams to park lights

----------

The truck looks and sounds like a growling, snarling black predator of some sort!

Took the throttle body & IAC off and gently but thoroughly cleaned both, painted rusting bracket at the end of the throttle cable, reassembled all and did tie wrap mod to pedal end of throttle cable to take slop out. All very simple and fast, thanks to the various how-tos and background info read in advance.

Except that I feared being trapped forever under the steering wheel upside down with arms extended doing the tie wrap mod at the throttle pedal....but all was OK with no bodily injury extracting myself.

actually those liberator A/T's are a pretty good tire for the price.... if they've got tread, which it sounds like your's is lacking, lol.
