Redneck bumper valence stabilization system: I got sick of my fog beams bouncing around at night over bumps so I used 2 zip ties to hold the valence to the end of each frame rail. Makes a huge difference, the beams are way more solid now

After two days heater core replacement, today i waxed my ranger with Collinites insulator wax, not the most shiny however the best protection and beading for months. he deserves it.
Had a lot of fun.

Cruise control light mod. I didn't remove the instrument cluster and take out the light switch. I just exposed the wire needed and used a Scotch Lock to tie into it. It works, but I noticed I have a bulb out. Seems weird that lights that were never used would be burned out. Oh well. I have another project to do. This thing is turning out to be like my Harley. The work never ends. Fix one thing, something else goes out. Had that in a few Chevys as well.

I finally had the time to drop my tranny pan and change the filter. What an effin' mess--looks like somebody got murdered in my driveway, but I'm glad that I finally got it done, considering that I had my tranny flushed last summer. I also Plast-Dipped my billet insert and worked on the PowerDome a little bit.

I picked it up from the dealership and drove it home after buying it last week. I also bought a cargo net for the bed and moved out of an apartment in Indianapolis and back to Detroit.

Put two quarts of oil in the damned thing. Damn thing costs more to keep running than I pay for it! Should've kept my Honda.
