Hey guys! Just got a new to me '98 ranger 2.5L with a 5 spd and 98K miles. I'm up towards the twin cities. I just cleaned the throttle body, changed the trans fluid, changed plugs and wires, and installed some new bilsteins today.

I'm going to change out the power steering, brake fluid, and coolant next. I'll honk if I see ya!

I'll have to take some once I get her cleaned up! I've gotta buff the swirls out and I'm trying to figure out what to do with the bed. It had a cover, but that killed the bed rails. I'm thinking a DIY bed lining kit, have y'all done one before?

Only ones I've got on my phone is my JKU, not sure if its allowed, but here's one!

Rolled it on....mostly, then used a brush in the hard to reach spots..
this was my new coat.. i had already did it once 6 years ago, and just added this new coat last year.... its tough stuff, just make sure you prep first and sand it down good before doing it.
And its great cuz years down the road, u can clean it up and add another coat.

Okay, damn it, no more pussy footing around. I want us to have a meet and it will be on a saturday in June. No more "i have a wedding, i have work, i have a funeral, I have a date, I can't make it" etc... I've seen too many of you do lot's of "spur of the moment" things that are more expensive, are further away, and are more time consuming than a ranger meet.
I'm not trying to be an Ass, but someone needs to whip people into realizing that if we don't have a meet in June, people are going to start saying that they'll be busy in July with vacations, and getting ready to go back to school in august, then it's too cold after that.
So what do you all say? it's been over a year and the time to do this is now.
Glenn mentioned a MN member lives in Jordan, has a place to work on vehicles and has a place to go mudding.
LET"S DO THIS.

Machine's on the Round Up Rampage again, lol.

I think the member was RedBomber, machine, go back a few pages and try to find his post about it, and then since he will be hosting it, we have to see what fits his schedule.
Im up for anything, but i do have 2 weddings this year, lol..hopefully no funerals tho!

Just trying to "rouse" the troops.

----------

I guess i have always felt like sometimes people don't want to do a meet.
we had a year to plan, but very few people are making suggestions.
and my pet peeve is when people claim they are busy, but then post "Drove 200 miles to pick up a seat cover' (an example) but they cannot be free for a meet, or claim "it's too far away"
I hope we can have a meet. I hope the MN members don't turn into what R-F Mn members have - Pussies. (went from having 15 members at a meet one year to less the following, until one year it was me and another and that was it.)
