where in the hell would you need your truck to go 135?! 100 for that matter?? Unless your ranger is a track truck with a roll cage, 6pt harness and a parachute, you will never need to go 90 and above

I hear you Bob. When I was installing my HID's I had to pull them several times. One side is a piece of cake. The other sucks...

I've only done 80 mph once, that was on a down hill passing lane. Gotta love on it to keep it happy.

Before I got my 31s I pushed it up to 90 on the freeway and I had all kinds of shake in the controls and the engine screaming...doesn't a freaking tour bus BLOW by me in the left lane. He must've been doin over a buck.

Now I get up to about 75 on the freeway, 80 on downhills. That's as high as I'll go because anything higher and the truck feels like its gonna explode. Shaking and rattling and 4500rpm lol

You must be good at removing it, cause I sure don't see any rust on your nice truck.

At 21 it's showing it's age,faded paint, wear and tear from years of abuse, a couple of small rust spots. Time for more TLC and new parts.

My power steering pump whines like a banshee. I put a new pump in when I did the head gaskets. I have read up on some cures but have not done any yet.

Seems like a fair offer. I paid $6k after taxes, licensing, and BS fees at a stealership for mine with 138k and change on it. But that was with it needing tires, ball joints, and a hidden rust spot in the floor that I'm sure they didn't even know about. Hell, I checked the truck out top to bottom before I bought it and even I missed it.
