Not sure if anybody is still on this site, but I do have a little update. Been driving around the stupid truck for a while, and I wasnít planning on piecing together another stock bumper which could run over $600, so I had been watching Craigslist every week searching for a new bumper, and scored this. Itís a Vegas Dezert Fab bolt-on bumper, which I am now the third owner of lol.

Of course, I added these lights I got a while ago, and a little something for the 4th of July.

Honestly not sold on it. Really cool looking but I liked my Ranger better the way I had it before. I also purchased the stock 2011 bumper from the same seller so if I change my mind, I can.

Personally more of a fan of the Affordable off road bumper on the grey ranger next to yours...but i might be slightly biased to grey Rangers with them

Oddly enough after I installed that bumper my radiator sprung a pin hole leak. Thatís the one I installed in mid-2016. So I bought another one just like it, but a 3-Row this time. Looks like my degas bottle is next on the list.

Few pictures.

Good news. PATS issue... SOLVED.

I was tinkering with my truck one night and my truck decided to not start. Great, except this time it was being a real fucking **** and wasnít going to start no matter how hard I tried.

So, I was able to jump my starter solenoid, but was completely useless because the PATS system prohibits the PCM from activating all of the motor functions (Coil pack, injectors, fuel pump, MAF, etc) so I took it to my guy.

Took it to my guy to have him figure it out. Dude is a fucking genius. If he unplugs the harness for my knock sensor and my EGR valve, it disappears! So apparently on the Duratecs there is a small coolant line inside the EGR valve on the back of the cylinder head. Corroded the unit and corrupted my computer. Then it all of a sudden decided to fry my PCM.

So an EGR valve (which requires removal of the transmission to access) a new PCM and a ford technition to program the truck, plus my water pump spring a leak so my guy put a new one in, a little patience and sheís good as new. Plus, my Smart Junction Box is no longer acting up.

Case closed.
