The the freaking IAC is $126 from Ford and $95 from O'Reilly. Rock Auto FTW at $60 plus a 5% off coupon. Only downside is I gotta wait for it rather than getting it and installing it right away.

The shitty running boards that I took off and grinded the rust off of. I can't believe that the previous owners tried to cover all of it up with layers upon layers of spray paint.

I hate that there is only ONE suspension lift package for my 2007 4x4 and it's 1800 bucks (super-lift). Nobody cares about rangers anymore. The new tacos and frontiers have a bunch of different packages to choose from.

My bed is basically "ish" on my truck...

A gas-grille fell out of the back of it on the driver's side recently and it scratched it to the bare metal and dented the top of the bed. And I had this side painted before.







From a distance




Also, I've been noticing that it has rust developing on the passenger side. and underneath it. I know my truck isn't the nicest in the world but I'm trying to keep it clean the best I can but little things like this just grind my gears.







^THIS REALLY

I'm talking about my truck man...screw the grille! Haha. Actually yes it did. Lol. There was more damage to my truck than the grille. It busted some of the cooking grids, dented and scratched it some and warped the lid but it still works fine.

Well... It's not the manual transmission, low to the ground, high powered, loud/nice exhaust, beautiful, expensive car that's extremely fun to drive..

But it sounds good, it's 4.0L V6 puts down the power, and I have fun driving it.

Oh, and it's 4x4 and a completely capable truck for it's class,
