Checked the keepers and bushings on the leaves and they were OK. In spring I'm gonna take the bed off and take the leaf packs apart and clean em up and see if that helps

Hate the pathetic single note horn, AND the wiring connecting it to the system. See my followup in 'What I did for my Ranger today'

Come to think of it, I don't like that either. My wife always tells me my horn is gay. I know it's just a truck but come on babe, it's got feelings.

Some women just don't understand. My wife doesn't want me to lift mine because she says it doesn't lifted. I said, "Of course he does! You keep belittling his self-esteem by calling his horn gay, so he needs to compensate by being bigger!"

4WD doesn't work. No dash lights at startup, nothing when I turn the switch. Guess I'll be looking at a new 4x4 control module...
