Putting in a new alternator...O'Reilly said the highest one they have for the ranger is a 95a one, my old one is a 60a.
I swore there was like a 120a one....anyway the 95a one will work fine with my stereo and amp and sub...

How hard was it to remove the swaybar? And what are the positives and negatives of doing so?

Their should be 4 bolts holding the bar to the frame then take the swaybar links off and thats it, positives better ride quieter and smoother, if you offroad once again smoother ride more articulation, negatives are body roll handling will suffer and i think thats it
