Finally did my 2.3l motor swap. It was all good until a week later I ended up with a cracked oil pan! Replaced that today technically but thought I would update my swap. This thread goes so quick i cant keep up lol

Just ordered this from hoonigans for the ranger for the front plate . With $10 or more purchase you get a free hoonigans #scumbags plate frame . Which is going on the back with my classic Texas plate I'll be getting at the end of the year once the rangers 24 yrs old

Changed water pump
Changed oil, mobile 1
Took rear brake adjusters off and beat on them till I could get them apart, wire wheeled, slathered in anti-seize and re installed. Finally adjusted rear brakes.
Fixed cable interference in driver door with window mechanism, was going "click" as the window was closed.

Then drove wife to dinner in it and took her to see kingsman.

Found something at a flea market today I've spent 7 years looking for a genuine Lund moonvisor. Gotta paint it before it goes on the truck

Default What did you do to your ranger today thread IV

Well been building my own hydro brake setup since everyone complains about the cheap ones falling apart . Heavy duty this thing is . With a Honda clutch master that's cheap to replace and has a built in reservoir . Need to break it back down and clean up, paint and finish the grip . Making a shifter handle to match . Wrapped with para cord

...I traded it in for a bit of an upgrade. I loved my Ranger, but lately I was finding it just too small. So I got a brand new 2018 F150 Lariat 4X4. This thing is awesome! And gets better gas mileage than my Ranger did. Enjoy your Rangers guys, they are a great and very fun truck.

Well, as matter of fact, it is a 3.5 EB. I refuse to get into the silly and factless Eco vs. V8 debate that every single Ford truck thread degenerates into these days. It's been done to death. Pick your religion and stick to it. One is as valid as any other. Ford offers a great choice of engines. You can't go wrong.
