if you having battery problems I feel bad for you son my ranger has 99 problems but the batteries not one!

In honesty though why not just start by unplugging the ultra gauge. If that doesn't work unplug the sub and amp. If that doesn't work, with both of those unplugged turn your headlights on with the truck off and see how long until they start to fade. 30 minutes or less and you're out a battery!

Working on taking a picture of the thingy for ya bud but just got home from work need to make some din din and eat and shower and shit...

went to see the "engine rebuild legend" leroy... He quoted me 1200 for a rebuild kit boring out cylinders cleaning my head and some other shit like cambering and what not. I'm gonna go ahead and do that I didn't want to but I'm going to do my engine first on the ranger. Called around trying to find a used front grille and what not from an 06 and I think the guy at Pams is half fucking retarded. I told him MANY times I was looking for all this stuff from an 06 or newer. Got done giving him the list and 2 minutes later he comes back and tells me he has everything in stock but the hood. So I asked how much it was and what trim package the truck was. He then tells me it's from a 2003 XLT I cussed him out and hung up...

Glen I asked leroy how hard of a job dropping a 5.0 into a ranger was and he said he would rather ride a "pink tricycle with cute stickers and a pink bandanna." apparently it's going to be a fun project for you

Terry don't you already have a lift?

Yea, do you already have one? Have you checked out your over heat? Have you done a pressure test on the system? Or have you bled the system to check the fans? Before you spend a couple hundred changing out your water pump have you checked it's really out? Do you have anything blocking your radiator or your condenser? Where is that tick coming from? If it's from the bottom I wouldn't doubt that you have a timing belt off... You might get a new one and come back to find that your timing belt was off a little bit... CHECK YOUR BELTS, air flow, pressure, and fans. Or confirm your water pump is out. I would have a hard time to say your water pump is out they are pretty rock solid units and usually don't cause overheating issues.

If when you drive down the highway you overheat but come to a stop you cool down you probably have a bad water pump. But if you overheat when you're stopped but when you're driving down the highway you cool down you probably have a fan problem. If you are overheating all the time then you should follow the earlier steps I mentioned to find the problem.

If the alternator were bad, the battery would die when its running...?

And it overheats when I catch up to speed. I looked at it today and the seal is shot pretty bad. There was a good amount of coolant coming out where the seal is

I'd say water pump if you overheat while driving... And yes the battery will die when you're running because that's what charges it. If you're replacing your alt you might as well get a 250 so you don't have to buy one later if you want to run the big 3.
