Finished the winter build of the bed extender. Hope to have a welder and a better extender come summer. So far I love it and the best part is it was all free! I just had to make it.

After finding out this morning that the electric motor is trying to switch between 4 hi and 4 lo by its self, I said screw it and cut the wires and ordered a Shiftster.

Default Bearings

Installed a new wheel bearing hub assembly thing... It almost seemed too easy. Other than a froze guide pin on my caliper mount... I'm picking one of those up this morning at O'Reiley's.

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

did this yesterday, BUT!

I rewired the lights on plow rig. I had the plow lights wired into the headlight wiring. Last year this was over heating my switch. So I took out the factory headlights. (This was before I was aware of relays )

So I rewired the plow lights with a relay (1 each for high/low) and then just used the factory hi/lo for the signal power to the relay. Works like a champ now

I also rewired my reverse lights. I had them wired right to the factory reverse, again, before I knew about relay and there awesome power So, I ran a relay and then used the factory reverse wire to activate the relay. Those 130w bulbs sure do put out some light now!

Windshield got hit by a 2" rock that came OUT OF someone's 3" fart cannon on their cavilier.

No joke, I watched it spit some smoke, then the rock, which bounced down onto the road and up to hit my windshield.

What's worse than a ricer? A wanna-be ricer w/ rock throwing exhaust pipes.
