Well, My Ranger is an XLT with no A/C, no power windows, locks, manual trans, and the world's simplest radio. But those are the things I like about it; what's frustrating is that literally the only electronic thing attached to the doors, which are the chimes/lights/"Door Ajar" dash lights, have decided to start screwing with me. Literally the only electronic things in the cab of that truck have gone apeshit.

Because the truck Gods hath spoken: "Let John forever pop start his truck backwards when going to work because he's too lazy/to spiteful of vehicular wiring to fix a simple relay problem."

Bastards.

I hate it that I've parked it until I get time to change out a wheel bearing, only have 108,000 +/- on it.

I hate how I finally get my balljoints fixed and then the brakes decide to break in their place. New pads and rotors going on tonight.

Something has happened to my 4wd today. Dont know if the loud banging metal on metal noise is the transfer case or if it something in the front diff. Thankfully I have good tires to fight through the mud in 2wd.
