Default Most dumb stuff done regarding a ranger...

I regret selling my 1994 Ranger. I could have fixed the exhaust, lifted the ranger 4 inches suspension lift and gotten 31s and regear. I was young and dumb and sold it and got me a car payment for a gas guzzler toyota tundra. this was like 6 years ago. and then I sold that tundra and I am back to a ranger which I will never sell.

I drove mine into the corner of my house once. Cost me about $700 to fix the damage to the truck.

Also, while replacing the rear axle, I forgot to chock the front wheels and the truck rolled off the jack stands. Luckily, nobody was under it. Back bumper was on the ground. Took a while to figure out how to lift it again since two of our three jacks were stuck under the truck.

Only had front brakes on a 92 ranger 2.9 with 33-12.5s. Just crimped off the back line. that was really ghetto rigged. Kinda sucked in the winter but never got in a wreck. Then sold it for scrap because the clutch went out.

I backed into a building by miss judging how long a driveway was which bent my bumper smashed the taillight and crushed the bottom corner of the bed

And well i had the front of the engine apart to change the crank position sensor I didn't change the timing belt so about 2k miles later it snapped on my way to work and lack of tools at the time and a place to do it that ran me about 220 bucks

I had moved my tractor in the driveway, and forgot it was there. Went to go to town and promptly backed into the hitch lift arms, $300 later, I reinstalled my tailgate. Yeah, and I drive the big trucks as well.

I replaced the wheel cylinder on the wrong side, I reved the engine over 4,000 rpm's while shifting between reverse and drive to get unstuck from a 3 foot ditch that was pure mud due to it raining just hours before and I literally shredded the gears in my transmission (the mechanic from the tranny shop said he was starting at my gears in pieces on the table), I put the wrong power steering fluid in my pump, I punched the crap out of my radio when I lost my temper, I punched my tailgate and driver door as well. I drive into a mailbox on accident, I ran into a steel guard rail at 60 mph and severely dented my bumper. Thats about all I can think of buy I'm sure I did more stupid stuff, I'm pretty dumb.

Was drifting corners in 3rd gear on gravel and hit some really loose stuff sending me off the road sideways, slammed into a vertical cliff, destroyed the rear corner of my box, the mirror, and the front fender, didn't touch the cab. Felt good when my head hit the window!!
