Wow that's a bargain lol ! Mine was under warranty but the part from ford was $300 with the extra hose that also went to hell with the pump: with labour it was like 800: when he said it was warranty I nearly bent down and praised him. Lol.
Sounds like even though it was a pain yours turned out well! Glad to hear it didn't go on ur trip!

They charge 500 labor for a water pump???? They are messy, buy so easy. This is why I do my own work. I can only imagine what rear bearings would have cost me at the dealer.

$140 for a $15 part and an hour of labor? Did they charge $60 for new coolant? Lol

Ordered a cherry bomb glass pack for the ranger today. Have never been a fan of cherry bomb but heard a couple on YouTube that sounded great. And a glass pack for 30 bucks? Don't mind if I do. Haha

It should sound pretty good, post a video of the muffler you got now, and then the glasspack...

It's stock now. I'd make a video today but we're getting some nasty snow right now. F*ckin buffalo... I want to make a vid of the truck anyway cause my K&N has been making a weird popping noise and I don't know why. Nobody's responded to my thread on it.

Went to dollar general and went to back out and I accidently put it in neutral when backing out. Thought the tranny had gone out again. Nothing but high rpms and a rolling truck. Scared the living crap out of me.
