Drove her to the bar then came home and cleaned up the engine bay a little bit w/ some F21 and simple green, just a cloth job though.





Also found a melted, corroded, burnt up, exposed 14 or 16g wire running from the engine bay, through the fender, through the door, under the carpet, etc. Took out as much as I could without tearing things apart.

How could you possibly treat a 2008 w/ all those mods like that? I'd be washing that truck daily..


Anyway, I did the: http://www.fordrangerforum.com/how-s...2-5l-only.html

Even though I had problems with detonation after doing that mod on my 2.3, I just did the mod on my 2000 2.5L with no adverse effects.

Took it through the wash, vacuumed it out, and got it tinted (5%).
Plans for the future:
Replace windshield
Replace center console lid
New wheels, current ones have a lot of curb rash
Replace passenger tail light then Tint tails
Projector headlights with 5k or 6k HID's
New Kenwood Receiver
Bed liner, Line-X or one I do myself
Redo the Carpet and Roof-liner (previous owner put some butts out in them)
