And with 10" if snow coming tomorrow it's only going to get more covered...

Oh, and the ball joint that needs replacing and the chirping noise. Can't forget about those.

I have a laundry list of things I need to fix on my truck and everyday there's a new squeaking or leaking fluid or whining engine noise.. Its still running fine, they're all minor issues but there are so many! Thiis cold and snow are taking a toll on my poor Ranger.

True that. At least I didn't say brand new.

Engine is fine. Power steering pump is old and whining, got a slow leak somewhere and I have to keep topping it off every other week. Coolant is leaking, I know its from a hose connection I just haven't got around to tracing it with the cold and snow, but again it minor enough that I can let it go for now. The other stuff is my led taillight bar stopped working on one side and I need to replace the taps with solder/heat shrink. Same for my alley lights (they work but I need to correct the wire connections). Then my aux reverse light that got smashed needs replacing.. Grille needs painting .. Whole truck needs a bath, bumper needs straightening etc etc etc .. Lol

I'm taking a road trip in May and I wanna get it in perfect working order before I go. She could do the trip this afternoon if I really wanted to, and I have every confidence that I'd make it there and back with no issues. Its just little stuff that's adding up

I noticed one of the hoses was spewing water all over the place right after I got home from a trip to the auto parts store

And then I spent all day cleaning/checking a few different parts and none of it fixed my problem so its back to the drawing board on my next day off...

Nothing at all! Just replaced the engine belt, fuel pump, and air filter and it runs great! I can go almost 2 weeks on a full tank. I'm about to put some 30's on it and a 3" leveling kit and just went mudding today with the stock wheels and height! Lol couldn't ask for better
