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

Well yesterday went to O'Reillys to get the brake shoes and spring kit for my rear axle and ended up helping a fellow ranger owner change the Alternator in his 07 FX4. Took me about 15 min. I could tell as soon as I walked out of the store that the poor guy wasn't mechanically inclined so I offered my assistance. He gladly accepted an I grabbed some tools out of my truck and went to work lol. Feels great to help others out. Especially other Ranger owners. Later that night at Walmart I found 2 bucks on the ground. Guess Karma was on my side that day.

FIXED ! FIXED! FIXED!

SOB! Cheep but.. what a pain. Coming out of the tcase there is a double u joint setup in the middle is the double u joint centering yoak assembly used the repair kit and it's fixed! What is annoying is i changed that 4 months ago. Apparently the unit was defective FIXED now excited.

That was after i replaced all the front bearings, but hell now the truck has all new u joints and i mean every last one in the thing, as well as the double u joint part and new front rotors inner & outer bearings ... new new new...

thought i would share. Thanks for all the input!

Picked up a muffler the other day. Magnaflow off of an import. Love it. Sounds really smooth and not too loud. Welded it up and put on in about 20 min. I love having a welder.
