I have a 2005 ford ranger 2.5l Diesel engine right hand drive. Can anyone tell me the type of shocks I can use to replace the ones on it. I donít know which of the ones that fit the left hand drive that can be used. Help

Cleaned it, I mean really cleaned the interior, cleaned the outside but it's so salty wvwn drivers driving by kick up salt dust that settles on the surface making it look awful, but oh well, his the season.

Speaking of the season, anyone know where I can find , sections of the rear sectiong for the frame from first bed mounts back to the truck, I have a rough quote for the job to replace it for $1200 but I need the frame Steel first

Interestingly, the wire leading to the filament
was burned off! Was fine until yesterday afternoon.

Replacing the radiator support was the easier part! Getting all of the rusted small screws/nut clips off of the wheel well liners and fender brackets was horrible.

I like to keep my vehicles factory, but I appreciate others work on their vehicles, why pay 40 grand on a new ranger or colorado when you can repair the frame, body, tranny, or radiator supports on your ranger?

Agree for the most part, BUT there does come a time when it no longer makes sense financially.

Did you need to replace your core support? I can give you detailed instructions so you can do it yourself.
