Luckily I already had a Haynes one since it's the same manual for my Ranger. I'm considering spending the bigger bucks and just getting the OEM Ford shop manual so I can have the real detailed info specific to my model year. 50 bucks well spent I think.

SWEET.

I just subscribed to that and am engrossed in the BII diagrams.

I was confused on looking at the front end because it didn't have a CV joint at the front wheel but now I look at it and see it uses basically a u-joint with a yoke there instead.

I say a meet at the end of may of the first of june....hopefully the snow will be gone..lol..
And lets try to find a central place for a meet....the first meet i drove like 3.5hrs for...it wad fun even tho it rained lol.

1. It would be nice to do it in a public park or something, but it would also be nice to maybe do it at someones place or garage and maybe we can wrench on a few things.
2. There has to be food involved. Either at a restuarant or we grille out.
3. We have to plan it so we can try to get the most people to come.

I need to go back a few pages and copy our member list and we need to contact those who arent on all the time...
Anyone know what page the last member list was on?

I'd maybe be down for a meet in June sometime once it gets warm. I'm kinda thinking something like St. Cloud area might be the most central, but I don't really know exactly where everyone is.

Dude u have a 2wd and probably get better gas mileage than me...and for the first meet i went to, i drove for like 3.5hrs, lol. It cost me a pretty penny and gas was like over $4 a gallon..
But like its been said...we will have to see who all is interested and find a central location. So no sweating anything yet lol

Hey everyone! I don't mean to thred jack but I just wanted yall to be aware of a company that I am managing. It is a Hydrographing company. I am giving all forum members the same price of $200 for an interior package that will include the radio bezel and the two door bezels. Below are pics of the interior pieces in my ranger. I know GCE is aware, I just wanted to announce to fellow MN guys of what I am doing these days lol. PM me if your interested.

As far as a meet, the end of may or first week of june would be best for me. If yall want I have a place we could meet. It is my dads warehouse right in Jordan, MN. Ill supply hotdogs and we can do some moderate wrenching there. Just no oil changes n stuff like that makes a mess. (uncle is anal about the concrete.) also I got a friend with a little mud park thing at his house in New Prague, mn which is right down the road. im sure we could go play around in there a bit. let me know what yall think.

----------

forgot to include the pics. sorry...




And for those who are unaware what hydrographics is... this is the process.
