Noticed an oil leak, seems to be from the front of the oil pan gasket, but needs more light and investigation. Handed out an FRF business card to another ranger owner from whom I bought a pair of manual locking hubs.

And made an offer on a 2nd ranger (about to become a fleet owner of green Rangers?). I'll find out tomorrow if it is accepted...a 98 extended cab XLT 4.0 auto. This would be the winter project (well, after some items on my first ranger get done). I don't think they'll accept the offer, though (although fair value in my mind, I think it was a rude awakening on their part...there is some rear frame rot work that has to be corrected). Cleaned out part of the garage in preparation for any winter work.

Got the front edge of the PowerDome trimmed to fit the '04 grill. Finished off the back edge, scuffed the paint top and bottom, broke one of the hood latch bolts(!). Hope to get some primed shot tomorrow with the weather stays decent.

On Thursday I got some of the rocker pannel painted with bed liner and installed my FM 44. On Friday, I got the BL installed. I also ran to 4 wheelparts and picked up a set of Procomp 15x8 steelys for it. Now I just need to find tires.
