That she's so darn old it's almost funny.... That I don't know the real mileage on her...... That she's not a 4x4..... That her tires are almost bald and I don't have money to get her new ones, even coming up on winter...... That she leaks coolant everywhere...... That she's beat all to hell, from the suspension to the roof....... That her interior is stained, torn, Broken, Beaten and Scarred........ That the day lights don't work anymore....... That her headlights are brand new, but the covers are so yellowed it doesn't make a difference...... That she's not worth much, but she's the only thing I've got that's worth anything........

(-.-)

But hey, at least the damn heater works

Ranger fuel pumps are probably the easiest fuel pumps to do. Takes like 15 minutes. I know, just did mine about a week ago. Doing one in another Ranger at work tomorrow. 6 bolts, 3 screws, 1 wire harness. Slide the bed back about 2 feet, and bam....right there.

I almost forgot the one thing I hate the most about my truck. Ever since I bought it, there has been a short in the center dashboard light. So when I turn my dash lights on, sometimes the center two gauges don't light up, so I have to beat on the dash board till it kicks on.

The only thing I hate about my Ranger is that its Mama didn't have twins!

And 93 Rarity, there's always extra toothpaste in the medicine cabinet. Go fix your headlights!

That it creaks whenever the suspension flexes. And its not any of the bushings, ball joints, springs, or shocks. Went over the suspension twice, had my shop spend a day and a half messing with it and we can't figure out what the noise is lol
