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

I got in a hurry turning left at a green light cause a bigger truck was coming faster than I thought. Pulled a burnout ! Surprised me and my daughter ! I had to let off to get traction and get out of the way ! Dry asphalt too ! Tickled us lol

It was alot cheaper for me then the average cause I got to use the wholesale account from my work and my employee discount at work. BUT.... it cost me about $600


heres a brake down for a retail buy.

LSD Carrier - $50 from craigs list
Diff Bearing Kit - $99.99+tax
Wheel Bearings - $36.99x2+tax
Royal Purple Gear oil - 19.99x2+tax
Diff Clutch Set - $149.99+tax
Diff Clutch Spring - 36.99+tax
Labor - $300.00


So about $750-850 depending on what you have done.

Theres another BUT. you can get a brand new complete carrier from americanmuscle.com for the 7.5" for 250. and then get bearing and gear oil and have it installed. so that might save alittle.

Picked up a DeWalt Contractor Series Truck Bed Toolbox off of Craigslist, new, never installed, for 150 bucks, they retail for about 425, got home to install it and found a couple rivits popped out of the hinge for the lid, easy fix with my rivit gun.

I got out of work early today, so as soon as I got home, I started working on the PowerDome. I got the back edge cut-out, and 'glassed a couple of hairline cracks in one of the supports that occurred when the donor truck got nailed. If it's nice tomorrow, I'm going to see if I can get the front edge laid out for trimming before the Homestead race comes on.

Replaced the upper control arms and lower ball joints on both the passenger and drivers side. Was a huge pain for the first one, went much smoother once I learned a few tricks.
