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

Don't know if this is cheating, not that I actually care, but since I didn't post yesterday I'm making up for yesterday's nonpost with one for various Ranger things from yesterday and today!

Yesterday: I installed a replacement airfilter, though the one it came with didn't look real bad. The replacement had been a cheap one, next one will be genuine Motorcraft.

I LOVE putting my truck to work, actual work, where it can get dirty
I told a friend I'd help volunteer on their farm. I mentioned I'd be bringing my new toy, so imagine their delight when I rolled up in my truck! So we put it to work by loading several hundred pounds of beautifully decomposed compost into the back of the truck. Another volunteer brought their Ranger to get work done there as well. Shoveling compost into the truck and then unloading it substituted for going to the gym

I've noticed I have that quite irritating door-rattle issues with my Ranger as well. I tell myself over and over, it's 12-years old, and it's has a Supercab, it's part of the wear and tear, but I did spray some lithium white grease into all the door latch assemblies and that did help, especially when one of the Supercab doors did not appear to be latching properly. It's better now! Ideally, I'd like to reduce all the rattles, squeaks, noise, vibration, harshness I can but it's not the biggest priority in my life right now.

Noticed half of my dash lights were out, so I tapped on the dash, and they came on. Gotta get that fixed.
