Good job man!!!

I've never let my truck go to a shop! I love changing my oil and stuff. Now try changing out the front crank seal, rear pinion seal, a timng belt, fuel pump, brakes, front bearings, waterpumps, heater core, etc....

Those are all the things I've done to the two rangers I have owned. They were wonderful learning experiences

Not if you drive a tacoma. It is a pain. You have to pull the plastic from the wheel well out, because it is literally impossible to do it otherwise. Toyota thinks mechanics make enough money lol.

Back to the subject. Congrats, it is a big step to being a grease monkey lol. You can do a lot of things yourself with the help of FRF. I'll be honest, I've sure learned a lot I didn't know. This information on FRF is great and the people too.

The nice thing of doing it yourself is you know it's done right!

Oh, Oreilly has the Flux Capacitor you want.

Let me know what tool you need to get your fuel filter off... I can't figure mine out.

And congrats.

Cool. I looked at the upgrade part # in the description and found the Mr. Fusion upgrade kit also. Now I know what my next mod will be...but it says it only fits Deloreans. Crap.

Will do. I'm sure some guys here will know. I heard that on '00+ that is has a quick connect so you shouldn't need any special tools. I have yet to find a good how-to on the subject yet....but I don't think it will be a big deal. From what I've pieced together from here, and the rest of the net, it shouldn't be that hard of a job...even for a newbie like me.

Yea. I need to find something to make a shim for Mr. Fusion that will fit in the bed of my Ranger against the cab so it can supply the Flux Capacitor.
