new silverstar ultra bulbs
Did you have to aim your headlights? I replaced my original Sylvania's with the Sylvania X-travision, and I am not very satisfied. In fact, I think they may actually be worse than stock, and that is why I think I may need to reaim my lights. I have an 08', and I had a heck of a time getting the headlight housing to align. Also, I don't know how easy it is to change bulbs on the 04', but on the 08' we have these metal tabs to pull up that loosen the housing. I think the whole set-up is crappy since I remember how easy it was to change the bulb in my 97'.

I did realize when I went to drive the Ranger today that the passenger side door has a nice new scuff mark, and once again, I know that it is recent. I took the vehicle to the gas station to add air to the tires, and I realized that my truck hit a new milestone - 62,000.4 miles. I was too lazy to go back into the apt. and get a digital camera, and I had a couple other stops to make. Also, I realized that I'm going to need tires soon. Last, I shopped at Wal-Mart for a new bookcase for my son's room.

New front rotors/pads today... slide pin was jammed on the passenger side I a bought a new kit... got to torch the bracket and use vice grip to get the bitch out! Still cheaper then paying to get it done!

Changed out the plugs, wires, and air filter. The old plugs were all gapped really messed up. I also cleaned the MAF. I tried to figure out a way to remove the cover over the cone filter but I think I may need to just cut out a section of it to be able to draw in more air. This way I will still have something for a heat shield too.

Just bought a 98 Ranger xlt for $600. It was a disgusting mess but it cleaned up nice. Ran like crap, bucking and missing, but a tune up seemed to do the job. Maybe some water in the gas fouled things up. Seems like a nice little truck.

Used her to pull my fathers new Excursion up a sand hill. Did well, for having a 3.0 :P

Also kicked the tire PSI back up to nominal.
Along with topping off washer fluid and coolant.
