Neglecting to replace my thermostat and a leaky radiator. For months.

Long story short, blown head gasket on my old '98.

1)driving with a front tire that had busted cords n was all misshapen for over a month...anything above 50mph it was vibration hell

2)just yesterday i took my stock height/street tires/2wd ranger n hit up a lil washed out road that links the drive way of my local turkey hill to a side street off the main road at 15-20mph...about 5 times. I bottomed out the front every time and nearly got stuck in the mud hole..fun but dumb

3) tried and failed to race a turboed civic haha...guy demolished me lol the 2.3L is DEFINETY not meant for speed

4)jumped a speed bump in a parking lot..55-60mph over one those things n it gets a bit wierd

5)attempted a burn out,while my friend films it at 3 am in a cop heavy town..got one out but the idiot didnt get it 2nd try was interrupted by the oh so friendly local gestapo(aka police)

About 2 years ago,right after i bought it,it was completely dentless.i put 1" body molding on sides of truck.parked away from all other vechicles,to keep it that way.went to grocery store,parked on side,no other cars in sight.backed in a space 30' from dumpster.BAM,hit a damn sign post.small dent below tail,lite,right on corner,less than dime size.I was pissed!!!!friends say,why worry about small dent?because every time i look at it,i cringe
took it to few body shops,$200 to 250 to fix.found a guy to fix it,in a week or 2,for $75.00,i'll give him $100 if it looks factory.
truck will once again be dent free.
Old retired guy,

One time ( and I got it fixed a while ago) I took off my old ranger emblem to paint it, had it off my truck and redid the emblem, then used gorilla glue to put it back on, I'm sure most of you remember me posting this LMAOO . After a week or so the stuff peeled off with the power washer and I touched it up

The dumbest thing I did was buy it.

It was abused, and now I'm paying for the 7 years of abuse before I bought it. But there's always light at the end of the tunnel, and I'll get all of the little quirks fixed eventually.

Decided to do a solo trip across the rock garden at the off road park with no spotter or anyone else around to help. Ended up sliding off one of the rocks and almost smashed my driveshaft.

After having fun with my gf in the ole single cab I was puttin pants on and apparently kicked the fuel pump switch. I didn't know what happened and was freaking out because it wouldn't start and I was on a lol dirt road so I pushed it into a nearby Parkin lot and called my mom to come get me. Called the mechanic a few minutes later at like midnight and yea he told me reset it and it started. (I told people we were driving and I made a hard stop and the lady kicked it)

Let the truck roll down the driveway in neutral while I had the door open and watched as it started bending inwards because it was caught on a tree.

Some minor damage to the door hinge but I managed to fix it a little by bending it back.
