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

Lent it to my mother so she could help my uncle rennovate his house.

Get to drive her 2010 Jetta TDI. Holy shit, so much more power than the ranger, also, according to its computer, I got 46mpg on my driving around today. Meaning it only cost me $6 to do 60 miles of driving vs $14 in the truck. Seriously considering trading in the truck for a tdi, Just think I might have some trouble moving dirt around pastures with one.

I tightened up the exhaust leak today and made a new exhaust video. This one has a nice rev of the "sweet spot"

At least you didn't punch the side of it and dent it like my bro did to his Acura. It was funny to see!

Anyone around you use a cb too? I have one but there aren't many people on the air waves it seems. Any pics of your install?

Went outside after work and as I'm walking to my truck I notice a puddle under it. Closer inspection, oil! Took it back to the garage that changed the oil yesterday to be told its the little funnel thing under the filter since the new oil is so much thinner than the tar that was in it. Ugh makes me mad.
