Put new plugs in today. Also replaced the wires cause when i would go mudding and they'd get wet, it would make the ole girl have a bit of a miss-fire. Now she's ready to do some puddle jumping and hop back in the mud hole!

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

had my new fuel filter installed,bought it a month ago.
took it to a shop i know,the boss said 15 bucks,to install.
i had already bought the tools to remove it,at harbor freight for $13.00.
i wanted to watch,so i could do it myself next time.his young mechanic kid installed it in abought 1 minute.the kid said the clips on filter,won't work on this type of tool.you just squeeze the clips and it pops right off.NOW i know how to do it.he didn't turn off pump or open gas tank,very little gas leaked out.then the kid bought my little tool set for $10.00,to put in his tool box for future use.he didn't have that type of tool.
$20.00 fuel filter
$5.00 install.the kid knew what he was doing.
see ya,old retired guy

i have 154,000 miles and i've never needed to turn the rotors. there's not even 1/16th inch lip where the pads run on them, so that kinda surprises me^^^

I have never had to replace rotors on any vehicle i've owned,in my 63 years.
If your truck is a 09 as you say,SOMETHINGS WRONG!!!!!!
You must be beating the BeJesus out of your truck.
I can't believe a 09 needs new rotors.with only 30,000 miles?????

New tail lights, just 40 bucks. Look like they were painted by previous owner, but was told that some FX2 Sport's came with factory tinted tail lights?
