I like them. They do stop better. The only thing is if you do a harder stop, you will hear like a whining/burr sound from the rotors.

Its been a while...
I believe since the last update...all I've done to my truck was regular maintenance and added a CB. I have a Cobra 19 CB and a red, white, blue Firestik antenna that I have mounted on the middle of the headache rack.
I just came back from vacation...went camping and offroading in Florence, OR. I have a few pics of my Ranger on the dunes and on the beach. Got stuck once and that was at the very beginning because I was too lazy to air down. Once I got pulled out, aired down to 10 psi and drove all over the sand. Put like 50 miles off-road. It was fun.











This is where I got stuck...


----------

Oh and in other news... I got a brand new Ford Fusion.

Thanks. It did great on the sand once I aired down.

Cmon guys there's a difference between showing off and sharing.

If he had a brand new jacked-up full size with 3 LED bars and stacks and 27" wide tow mirrors freakin brodozer then yea call him out. But he's not. He's sharing what he did to his 13 year old Ranger. Lay off a little lol

Now that antenna placement.....mehhh it might be good for transmission but I'm not digging it at all man haha

I like it where its located. I do question it at times but it really is the best spot, IMO. I could've put it where I had the safety flag but I don't think I'd get good transmission there.

Here is a little video of the sand dunes. I didn't do much it was the first time for me driving around that area. But the scenery is pretty nice.

Small little update with my truck:
Haven't been able to do much with my truck since I got my Fusion. However, it allowed me to be a little more adventurous. I've been taking my truck off-road on trails for the past couple of months, something I wouldn't have done as a daily driver.

A pic of my crew. A fellow Ranger owner and a Jeep owner.
[IMG]upload pic[/IMG]

However with all that off-roading, it does come with a price. I ended up tearing up the tread on my tires, causing me to have to get a new set this past weekend. All that mud was not fun to clean up too.

A small "mod" that I've done recently was put LED bulbs in the dome light. Hoping to put LEDs in the third brake light soon.

Ranger hit 143,000 miles. Planning on getting LED third tail light and some new fog lights sometime soon.
Any suggestions on fog light color? Thinking blue but yellow might be more practical.

Ever thought of rigging the AM/FM and CB antennas together? I did it on mine and stuck a 4ft fire stick on it, works like a charm, down to a 3ft now because parking garage but im pretty satisfied with it.
