Where's everyone at??

Where's machine.. He came back and posted once, then disappeared!!

Hey Charlie....just a reminder, don't keep your flashpaq in the truck all the time...specially freezing nights!!


Can't wait to get my new fender flares on this weekend..already removed all my mudflaps and my rear stock flares. Going to try to remove the front ones soon so I can wash the fenders really good before the new flares go on.

That meet looked bad ass! Glad you guys had fun.

EDIT: And an update on the bike....I finally sold it

Now just to wait till spring and I'll buy a bigger better more powerful bike. But I'm gonna miss the old Honda, it was fast as hell with tons of get up and go and handled tight in the corners.

Was at the gas station, in the wife's car, and a dark green ranger pulled up.. Talked to the guy, gave him an frf card.
He seemed a bit knowledgeable on basic stuff about his ranger, its a 99 (didn't ask what engine) but he said he had already replaced the hubs with the avm manual lockouts.
He's having an error code running lean, and having a hard time figuring it out..i told him to start with cleaning the maf and pcv, then also check for vac leaks, and then check the dpfee sensor and egr.
He said he would check out the site...hopefully he drops into the MN section...

I just wish I had been in my ranger so he could have seen it...

He also said he hates the 60/40 seats, I told him about swapping in explorer bucket seats, he said he would have to look into that..i also told him about all the other explorer stuff one could throw into a ranger, he liked that..
Too bad around here I have already picked the junk yards pretty dry.. Lol its slim pickings around here anyway....

So im doing what I can to round up new members, are u guys?

Welcome.
Nice to have another 99 ranger 3.0 on the MN thread...
Im from the central area, Alexandria and Fergus Falls.
I make it to southern areas like Morris, Appleton now and then..

We are always trying to get more Mn members.
Go back a few pages thru this thread and see pics and stuff from previous meets.

Working on installing my bushwacker fender flares, instructions say easy install, that's a load of BS.

Once I got all four old flares off, there's a deep line where the edge of the old flares was, and in many areas of this line there's no paint...so with my paint marker pen, I touched it up.
To make things worse, the new fender flares, dont follow this line completely. It only matches up at the top of the fender, not at the outer sides.
Also these flares don't extend to the outsides as much as the stock ones, yea the lip extending out from the truck is wider, but not from front to rear of the fender.
So see I had herculined the bottom of my rockers, up to my stock flares, these new ones, don't reach that herculiner, so there's going to be an inch where there's no herculiner! I will post pics up of this soon...i am waiting for the touch up paint to dry.

Next, the molding line contour of the body and the fender flare doesn't quite line up, I will need to use my dremel to cut and make it contour and match the truck better.

Is that good or bad machine??

I got one rear fender on, looks good..

The hard part is having to jack up the truck, remove the tire, to get a drill into spots.

I will try to post pics tomorrow
