Cool Bought myself a Danger Ranger!!!

Whats up FRF? My name is J, i am mechanicaly inclined, I race motorcycles, this is my first truck and also my first american car.

I picked this truck up today at 12PM. 98,000 miles, dark green, 2.3, 5 speed.

Truck isnt perfect. Started noticing things on the way home. The heater isnt working ( i figure its the heater control valve from what i've read), my temp guage doesnt work ( figure its the temp sesnsor but im not sure which one?) and right before I got home the check engine light came on... This weekend i'll be doing a whole up on it and in the next few weeks ill do the timing belt.

I bought the truck to haul my race bike and equipment around. Nothing else. I wanted to lower it to make loading the bike easier but apparently lowering these trucks isnt as easing as (or cheap) lowering a car with just springs or coilovers. A system will be installed to keep me bumping to the newest tracks on the way to my races.

Welcome to FRF!!
Your best bet is a Haynes manual from any auto parts store.
