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

I ordered some custom machined one piece anti-cone ring's for my Trailready beadlocks. I designed them on my computer - then contacted a machine shop to actually produce them.

They will be powdercoated black and made out of 6061-T6 aluminum to replace the multi-piece plastic setup that Trailready offers.

The anti-cone ring fills some of the space between the beadlock sealing surface & the bead of the tire to prevent uneven stress & bending of the surface ring due to the height difference. You basically need them when using tires that have an overly thick bead. It should seal much better since it's a single solid piece.

Going custom on this is pricey as all hell - but I'm already into it a ton anyway, so what’s some more! LOL

Looked at it as mother nature gave it a free car wash.

Rotate balance & alignment. Noticed left front was wearing ugly, so I took it in. The guy said it was waaaay off!

Only cost me $75 @ Ford for something I would have spent more in gas going into the shop 2 hours away multiple times for.

Thanks Ford!
Bench bleeding a master cylinder is a must. Once that is done, gravity bleeding takes care of the slave. Bench bleeding is a time consuming PITA though.
