I have never thought of that before.....might have to steal that idea. I'm pretty broke at the moment so I cant afford carpet so that would be a good alternative for now!

Thumbs up Re: What did you do to your ranger today thread

Just bought the Truck 11/29.
NO LEAKS!!
Did the Plugs and Wires: Exhaust (easy side, yeah, yeah, yeah), Sunday 12/02, and the extremely fun/interesting Intake side yesterday.
Seems it mostly eliminated the Pinging, just a wee bit occasionally.
Oil/Filter Change next before shop visit.
Maybe the suggestion in Ford Ranger Tech/Dual Ignition Plug Mod
Now would help, so off with the Alternator in a bit.
Early models (89-?) have the Intake Coil under the Alternator (Driver side) which makes access more fun.
On to the Sensors along with Timing Belt, Water Pump, Radiator AND Cooling System Flush (looking at simply replacing Radiator yet my Wrench will suggest yes or no).
New Clutch kit when in the shop for the other bits and probably new Universals.
There's only so much one can do in a Condominium parking lot.

Then there's the spare tire "rack".

CHEERS!!

The clutch slave and master cylinder is all done on the '98. Just need to get inspected so I can drive it.

I wash and wax my 2008 Ford Ranger XLT today. It looks great. Recently purchased it and probably the first time in a while that it has been washed/waxed. Had some nicks and scratch on paint but still look fine.

Well, not quite today, but very recently... I finally fixed my cruise control!

I found there was a plastic housing around the servo cable that had cracked. That housing keeps the cable locked in place when the cruise in engaged. 4 years of hot Texas summers must have done it in. So, 5 minutes and some heavy duty tape to put it back together and it's good as new! Now I really want to take a long distance road trip
