Default Texas newbie here.

Hey guys. I've actually been post on here for a couple of weeks now, just thought it be nice if I introduced myself finally. My name's Mitchell Pettijohn and I'm an enthusiast of all forms of motor sports and all types of rides. I actually got started on Rangers because I picked one up real cheap. Turns out you get what you pay for because I swear to god that NO maintenance done to it. The spark 5 of the spark plugs had fouled out, the oil was sludged up, one of the injectors was completely clogged shut and the rest were getting close to it, the rear brakes had never been replaced, the air filter was BLACK not just dirty, and the powersteering pump was almost empty and so was the brake fluid.

Well since I'm the kinda guy who uses broken parts as an excuse to upgrade I just went to work making things better.

I originally planned on just using it as my DD/parts runner for my other projects so I had the oiling system and cooling system flushed and did a basic tune up. Well that didn't last long.

Well that's how all this got started. LOL. Now let's see where this takes me.
