Cleaned K&N filter, MAF, throttle body and IAC tonight. Figured out I need a new idler pulley after replacing the belt and the tensioner last month.

Not today, but I put new front shocks in that I had laying around. Turns out that shocks from the rear of a 4th gen Camaro will work on the front of a Ranger. They are a tad longer so if it was lifted it would be the perfect shock. It still works though. Doesn't bottom out the shocks or anything. My stock shocks wouldn't even come back up after being compressed. Pretty sure they were stock 185k mile shocks.
