something else you might look for is if you can jack the rear of the truck up (both wheels off the ground) and take the wheels off and the brake drum. The rotate the axles and look at them from the side and see if they wobble. I have replaced a few axles in Rangers due to them being bent.

I bet my axles are probably bent. I don't know what could of bent the axle though. Like I said even when I brake my ass end almost wants to hop at times.

If you want I am off this whole week, and this weekend you can take a spin with me, and maybe see what you think the cause might be. I really hope it isn't the axle's I heard those were expensive. I just know that I haven't noted any difference in take off, or power climbing. It may the tires having water in them or something. I just didn't think they'd balance with water in them.

Like I said best thing is to ride and see for yourself.

Don't matter to me when we meet man. Just let me know. Sunday night would be fine. I don't wanna meet up and do much. I just thought I'd let ya see what its doing. You or Jazz. Either way I just wanna get to the bottom of this. The guys at shop couldn't figure this out. They said it was the tires, but I've had the tires balanced... and the tires are brand new. They had water in them because it rained when I got them off tirerack I had them outside for a bit. Had them put on and balanced at rideouts down on Green Street.

Well what about tomorrow we meet up Jazz and I let ya take it for a spin and see what you think. I was told it takes a lot to bend a axle, ALOT. Nothing I can think of right off hand would of bent the axle anyway.

I got another guy coming to the meet. MEt him at thorntons on 41 (south thorntons). Guy had a 2wd red ranger with Eddie bauer seats and some aftermarket rims, and maybe lowered. I invited him to our meet in Sept and pointed him this way. Just a heads up.

September 4th right? At where?

Lets announce this again so any one that sees this will know where the meet is.

Sorry I haven't been active going through some personal crap. Things seem to be working a bit better now.

Still got this vibration in my rear tires. Its the most annoying thing ever. Its defiantly worse at 60 MPH, and it seems to be under acceleration. I still think the culprit is drive shaft or the rear tires. I also thought it may of been the fact I chipped my brake drum on the outer edge which to me would throw something off balance. I just don't wanna spend the money on the wrong thing and it not be that...

I gotta get my radio fixed now. Its not sitting in the hole correctly, and the plastic is making an awful sound. I think its just a simple fix though that I can do. Anyway anytime you wanna go for a trail ride or just meet up and hang out some where for a bit we can doesn't have to be a 'official meet' being as we are both so close by to each other... that goes for Jazz to. I was going to text him, I am not much on phone calls, txting is just way easier and convenient that way if you forget to say something its just a message away.
