Default Nice to meet ya

Hey folks, I'm Scott and this is my ride:



It's a 1996 XLT with the 2.3L 4cyl. that I bought 2 years ago for $1500. It only had about 90K miles on it.

I found this forum while googling a solution for my busted center console. I didn't find much. Apparently no one else has ever broken the console in their Ranger.

I started looking around and found a suggestion for removing the muffler from the intake for better airflow. Sounded good to me so I ripped it out yesterday. Since that helped, I looked around some more and found the throttle cable fix/mod. Turns out I had a lot of slack so I crimped some pieces onto it that I cut from some wire terminals. I can't believe the difference. I've been driving that truck for two years in that condition. I thought it was supposed to be that pitifully weak.

Oh well, better late than never, right? Anyway, I'm glad I found the place.
