Anyone here looking for a full center console from a explorer, with cd changer, good lid, in great condition, needs cleaning. I saw one available at the junkyard. They had a few others, but the rest had busted lids and had other issues. But this one grey one seemed in great condition. The jy wants $45 for it, and if I pull it for u I'd like at least $10 for my time, cuz they aren't easy to pull out.

----------

........

Also, I will work on a map on Sunday night, we need to get a good head count, and someone be on the lookout for weather forecasts for that area.

----

Im bringing 2 cans of gas, one for me, one for Charlie??

At least a 5 gallon, to put about 4 or 4.5 gallons in. U don't want to have it completely filled, especially driving thru bumpy trails and hills, it will just spill and splash.

The trails up there aren't too rough, they are all marked for difficulty levels. Plus we may spend most of the time in the gravel pits/ mud hole.

Come on we gotta get a few more.

We really need to up our MN Membership. What we have like maybe 10-15 active members?
I bought 100 frf cards and have been puting them on ranger wipers all over. Trying to round up more members.

Anyway, I hope its more than just us 3.
I plan on going anyway if your going Charlie, to deliver u your light bar.
Im figuring a $100 for it.

My new Explorer roof rack, going to sand blast it, repaint it, and eventually mount it to the topper...

Thanks

I hope u like that flashpaq.
I wonder what power changes it gives the 4.0 compared to the 3.0.
Some say all it really does is change shift points and pressure/firmness.
Also did u figure out how to recalibrate ur tire height for correcting the Speedometer and odometer?

it shifts a lot smoother and i can tell it accelerates a lot faster with the tune. it also raises the rev limiter while in neutral so it sounds better when I rev it. I haven't played with it enough to figure out the tire height recalibration yet

Why is it that some Rangers, and vehicles in general, just rust faster.

I saw this Ranger, its like an 01-02 i think, so its newer than mine, and its way rusty, look at the bed!
