Much appreciated buddy, although according to new datasets I'm not going to miss it unfortunately. 50+mph winds predicted, so that's not too bad but 10 inches of rain will be fun. That's where the prediction is right now. Who knows where it'll be come Sunday.

Little update here, got the truck back. Toasted the radiator as we expected, as well as the air condition compressor. So that's fun. In other news I want to murder my inertia switch. Truck shut off randomly when I was taking my crush to Walmart

Look on the bright side. Your crush probably thinks you are an awesomely smart guy to KNOW to reset the inertia switch!

A Little bit of an update on the Ranger.. radiator repair is working perfectly, I am noticing that I am running cold, we'll see about possibly throwing a thermostat in while I'm in Ohio over fall break. Also - the problem was not the inertia switch itself, rather the damn connector. Never have I seen a connector fry so badly in my life. I'll post photos once I get my phone charged. So before leaving to town to pick up things back home I cut the connector and wired the two wires. I have developed a rear axle leak, more than likely a pinion seal, but I don't have time to mess with it (college, a week before fall break) so I sent the Ranger away to the local repair shop and hopefully, he'll have it ready to go by the weekend so I can drive it to Ohio. We'll see, stay tuned. Haha. Other than that I have plans to do some maintenance on it when I'm in Ohio... New plugs and wires for sure, and possibly an air filter if it needs one. Mileage update is approximately 97,500 miles.

New sliding rear.. hasn't leaked so far and it's convinced me to always buy a truck with a sliding rear..

Rear sliding is the best, can be life saver if you lock keys inside

Mine is weird. I couldn't get mine open with a thin piece of metal. There's a tab preventing it
