That would be a bad ass place to meet up.

If only there was a way I could bring the Ranger AND the Bronco to a meet

haha sorry nelson. I dont even hardly park my trucks on the concrete there. He is stupid anal about that stuff n I dont feel like dealing with all that.

Also the month of may for me has just been filled. so first weekend in june or sometime around the end of june... got a bachler party the weekend of May 31 and then the wedding is June 15. so either that weekend of the 8th or some time around then would be fine with me as of right now. also my buddy will be bringing his 89 ranger with a 5.0 HO swap and a D44 front 9" rear... ITS BADASS!

ahh that pic is crap... lol i should do a better one, lol.

those toggles switches are for my turbo and nos setup.... lol


no really...right now they dont go to anything...at one time one went to my offroad lights i had on my bumper, and the other one went to my lights on my rollbar..

i am working on a new radio bezel with double foglight switches, and those will go to my lights on my rollbar or my roofrack, and the second one will go to my lights that will go onto my brush/grilleguard once i get it on. And then those other two toggles will just go to some other lights, maybe backup lights or something...

Haha!

I finally diagnosed a loud rattling noise my truck was making...the heat shield attached to the bottom of the bed was held on by one rivet and fell off once I touched it...and on the furthest back exhaust hanger, the metal inside the rubber rusted out and was making a ton of noise

Well guys...i made a big purchase today.
Ive been going to the YMCA now for a year, running on the treadmill, weight lifting, and swimming laps.
Ive lost maybe 25-30lbs, but im not sure how much ive gained back in muscle..
Spring/Summer is bout here and i want to get back outside exercising.
I just bought a brand new bicycle from Target, $119.
Its a Magna Excitor 21 speed, and what really caught my eye and made me choose it, was its colors, its black and red and was the only black n red bike they had....it just grabbed me...

My first big adult bike i had i bought from Target when i was about 13 living in Texas.
I workd and mowed lawns and raked leaves to save up money for that bike, it was also a Magna and it was black n red too..
I had that old Magna till about 4 yrs ago, i was too big for it so i sold it to the pawn shop for $20.
And well now i have a newer nicer black n red Magna....and its goregous...
I cant wait to get out on the bike trails around here...and i can ride it the whole 1/2 mile to work lol.
I will post pics up of it tomorrow.

The only thing that bugd me about it is the cheap decals it had on it..those are coming off and i will make my own..lol..love having my own vinyl cutter..lol

I think your first "mod" should be, go to a bike shop and buy metal pedals...those plastic ones will break quickly like mine did. The nice metal ones I got were only $20 and have a lot more surface area on them

Nice bike Glenn...I need to get a new bicycle too before too long. Fun way to get some exercise.

I totaled up all the parts I need to re-do the front end on the Bronco yesterday....it comes to about 200 bucks if I use Rockauto. I went and checked the front axle u-joints and they are SHOT. Good thing I haven't used the 4x4 yet.

So once I get some more spending cash together I'll do:

- New rotors, pads, and calipers
- New wheel bearings/seals and front axle u-joints
- Upper and lower balljoints
- New muffler

The goal is to have it all ready for hunting duty by the first week of November. Shouldn't be a problem since I've got all summer.

I'm also kicking around ideas for a paint job once I do rust repair on it. I've got a few ideas....

- Black with neon green trim/accents
- All black
- Desert tan color with brown (think Jeep Sahara or Afrika Korps type stuff)
- Black and blaze orange

That's a ways off though, but fun to think about
