I hate the wheels & tires I have on mine right now, don't get me wrong they're fine for driving to work on these backroads, and for light wheeling, but stock bronco 2 rims with balding pro comp mudders just don't suit it.

Thats its muddy, my oil gauge is flickering, my tires are worn out, it shakes while driving, and now I have a blinker light out and the turn signal goes extremely fast which is loud and annoying.

Everything. Only because of a combination of it's not perfect and my finances are not getting to where they need to be as fast as I'd like, and I could have an extra $9,000 in my bank account if I hadn't bought the truck. (Though, I don't regret buying it.)

Lol bdillard...


I hate that no matter how much work i put into it to make it nicer and last longer it never seems to be enuff.

Theres always small issues that bug me.

For instance...last week i spent many hours removing the old rollin bedliner stuff and prepping for new stuff..
And then i spent many hours applying the new bedliner to the bed, bed rails, and rocker panels and more..and for the most part it looks awesome.

Now i see other scratches and imperfections all over that bug me..

If I had the money I might consider buying a brand new vehicle. That way I don't get some *******'s truck with horrible/deep hidden rust, that he somehow fucked up rear end (axle seems to be off center), with rust issues caused by fender flares rubbing on the body, and a rough idle, and doesn't shift smooth much, jerks into gear, etc...

-----

On a side note, the dealership I bought the truck from has closed down.

I would love to buy a new truck off a lot with a big long warranty...
But that isnt going to happen.
I do hate my truck some...but i love it more and that love outweighs the little bit of hate..
I guess i want the truck to last a long time, at least another 15yrs or longer..but i see the issues and i know it may not last that long...not without throwing more money and time into it.

I want to get my white 98 ranger running and then i can park my red 99 and slowly tear it apart and fix and restore it...and pass it down to my kid...the wife wants to start trying for our first baby this spring...lol..that means less money for my projects..haha
