I like roll pans if they don't look too mini truck-ish. Scott megill(idk his username, Glenn might) has a really sweet custom one with tow hooks on it it's super nice. I would just be worried about losing the protection you have with a bumper

I believe roll pans are illegal in Minnesota....a bumper is required and a roll pan doesnt qualify as a bumper.

If it just had the non-standard 4x4 decals, that would be one thing.
But-
the frf stickers
the transformer stickers
the window vents
the mirrors and honeycomb painted black
the cigarette hole in the drivers seat from the PO
the bends like the truck had from being rolled
the replaced bumper that it needed
the herculined bed and rails
the hitch with silly silver frame
mileage 5k above where I left it
tailpipe bent up from welding of the new muffler in right when I got it

All suggest to me its my old truck.

----------

Glenn I've been working my butt off, I keep thinking work will get easier but it doesn't seem to. I also finally got around to seeding my yard after adding 10 yards of black dirt... I could go a few more months without dealing with that again.

I picked up brewing beer too, since it's sort of a slow going, on again off again hobby. Just my speed.

How's married life treating you?

Married life is good...expensive but good.


And im not surprised someone bought your old truck and fixed it up.
It wasnt beyond repair...insurance just deemed it more cost effective to get you a new one.



The bodyshops wanted to replace my whole bedside for this....even tho that back corner is replaceable and a patch panel is available for $65 from LMC TRUCK.
The bodyshops estimates for a whole new bedside, paint, labor, etc was about $2100.
I went to several bodyshops...none of them wanted to weld in a $65 patch panel because they will make more money on doing the whole bed side!!


The insurance adjuster from State Farm, his estimate was about the same!
He told me the base value of my 99 Ranger is about $5200.
If my damages had been more then like $2600 they would have totaled out my truck!!
So basically if my bumper or tailgate had been damaged..my truck would have been totaled!!
All of this is just because LABOR is expensive!!

Well, my cat, that I met minutes after he was born and visited him everyday for 40 days when I was about 5 or 6 until I was able to bring him home, is at the vet. He's been throwing up, urinating randomly, and hiding under my dads bed.
He had to be given a shot to put him to sleep (anesthesia) so they could take blood samples.
They suspect he could have liver problems and I will be getting the results tomorrow. Wasn't able to bring him home today because of the anesthesia, they want it to wear off, before I do bring him home. Not going to lie, I'm pretty depressed. Hopefully it isn't his time to go.
Don't know if I'll be able to fix my truck this week, don't know when since everything they are doing is pretty expensive. But family first.

Here's a picture of him, btw its all muscle

What up all? New to FRF, but not the Ranger scene. Pretty sure I know machine from over on R-F and a few meet-ups we had over there. Anyway, figured I'd post up in the MN thread.

Sorry about your cat Beau, pets are family. I have 3 small dogs that are very important to me too. Hopefully he'll be back home to you soon.

I'm glad somebody fixed the truck up and hopefully enjoys another 100k miles on it, it was not driveable after the accident so hopefully they made it safe.


(being married is expensive. but the food's great!)

Hey I gotta question, whats everyone's opinion on a roll pan bumper?

Sent from my DROID RAZR MAXX HD to your Potato 5S
No I was looking for pistons and came across that site. Stroking a 3.0 to a 3.3 is accomplishing nothing but allowing boost... It's dumb.

No the shop its at, the owner i ride motorcycle with, hes in my bike chapter.
His shop mostly does classic cars and trucks and hot rods. But he will do newer cars too.
He currently has a newer ford f150 with deer damage hes working on and a newer chevy with rusted out wheel wells hes fixing, as well as an old GTO and a 56 chevy belair.
Hes worked on tons of stuff. Hes been in business for like 25 yrs.
He stands behind his work.

After going and getting estimates at many other shops i trust him and his work over them.
U know my red bedliner....one shop wanted to do it black and just paint it red....wtf....then when it gets scratched the black would show thru....sorry not letting that happen!!

Tisk tisk tisk. At least you know a reputible body shop man we're far and few in between. The bed liner sounds like they wanted to just do it cheap as hell, not cool. Although now would be a good time to strip your whole truck and por 15 it
