Well I had a strap, but the highway was a parking lot. Who do you help? I ended up following the other 4x4s up the unplowed median to get out of the snowy traffic jam.

Drove my ranger to work and back. Nothing special.

Changed out the camshaft synch and the positioning sensor. Was super simple job but a bit of a pain to get to the thing.

I was worried when I first started the truck because it was missing until I noticed I had bumped off a plug wire haha. I also got lots of fiberglass in my hands from the firewall insulation...ouch

Got tired of waiting for warm weather to do some painting on it...so I painted up the spare hub. Going to get the others when weather permits

Finally got around to removing the dealership badge on the tailgate....after owning the truck for 5 years.

Also stopped by O'Reilly's and picked up a new thermostat and fuel filter. They'll go on next weekend.

Replaced 5 spark plugs and wires, and when removing the 6th, sheared the threaded portion off in the cylinder head. Tried an EZ out without any luck. Previous owner must have never replaced the plugs, electrode gap was easily around 0.065. Watched my truck leave on a wrecker to my favorite repair shop get that thread/tang portion out for me. Thank the lord the rest of the plug came out clean, I'm hoping they can fix it without pulling the head.

Just melting off today

Yesterday I drove it to work and then locked it in 4wd for the snowy drive home.

Wishing I had time to work on my truck.
