Took a video of my exhaust with my phone m going to post it on YouTube. And did a bunch of body work in the parking lot of my girlfriends Dr.s office. I didn't realize how much you could get done in 6 freaking hrs. I removed the emblems on the fenders and tailgate aswell as the antenna and filled in all the holes along with some other dings and dents. And the gap the 94 supercab has right behind the door above the window. I filled in the lower one. Also pulled the Ford emblem out of the steering wheel and started stripping the paint

Finally got one of my new 35's mounted onto one of my beadlock wheels (partially). The beads on the MT/R’s are thick!

I still need to get the spacers then I can officially finish up the first wheel by bolting it all together.

Due to the bead thickness, I needed to remove part of the inner portion (1/16") to get it to sit down in the beadlock lip even when using a great deal of 'persuasion'.

Talk about a workout!

One wheel partially down...four more to go!

Spent all day spraying down some rubberized undercoating and then repainted the exhaust with high temp black paint! replaced the 2001 edition fender name plates with the 2011 fender plates for a cleaner look... also re-colored the grille logo to white and black to set my ranger apart from the rest!

That's a SOHC 4.0 right? Nice upgrade if you're coming from an OHV!


Did the Big 3 wiring upgrade, thanks to Pooleo who soldered the ends onto my cables for me. New Tsunami battery terminals too

Cleaned the Ranger out with seafoam. It has 49,000 km / 29,000 miles so I suppose it didn't need it. Didn't hurt to check though. I was expecting a lot more white smoke!

I also picked up some Mobil 1 full synthetic 5W-30, Mobil 1 oil filter and a drain pan.
