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

Took another run up Rollins Pass. Not knowing
that "dust control" work was being done! Crew was soaking the
road with mag chlor, or magnesium chloride. Same stuff used to
keep snow from building up on the roads during winter.
Picked up all sorts of the stuff, along with plenty of mud!
Was an absolutely disgusting mess by the time I got back home.
Did a semi quick wash of truck, to get that shit off!! Don't need to destroy truck that fast!
Need to get to the underside more on Friday. Maybe try to get paint cleaned up a bit, and wax it for
the first time in a year or more!

What kinda 4-wheeler is that? I've got a Polaris Sportsman 500 and I'm wondering if it will even fit in the back. I know the 220's will, but the 500 is a lot longer. Might have to try it now. lol.

U can fit pretty good sized four wheelers in the rangers especially the long beds!

This is just my 220 but there's a lot of room for bigger four wheelers!

After a run up Rollins Pass, Thursday, I washed the fresh, semi dry layer of
Magnesium Chloride off the truck! Made it about 7-7 1/2 miles up.
This was as far as I got:


4WD and extra vehicles were a necessity!

Today, I took the orbital buffer and paint cleaner to it.
Applied cleaner with buffer. Wiped off by hand. Broke for lunch, then came back and waxed the truck.
Here it is, freshly waxed:


And sprayed a hot tire shine on tires.
Gave it the TLC it needed for quite some time!!
Looks better now.
