on my IG post id said the wheel got fucked up, which i thought was the case. id thought that in addition to the bearings, the lugs loosened up and the seats in the wheels got all messed up. but nah theyre just dirty and greasy. i'll try and get some pics up. IG is @mdmranger, there are some pics and a vid posted there.

haha oh yea, inner race was fused to the snout it got so hot. managed to get it off, probably gonna make one sweet keychain to remember a cotter pin saved my ass..

could have had the truck rolling that night, but a superheated snout sounds like a snap and alot more damage next time, so i pulled a pair of stock spindles yesterday after work (in case i ruin a snout while pressing it out/in). also randomly stumbled upon a set of brand new EBC slotted rotors for my truck that someone had bought on accident, and was now selling at half price. so i swooped on those. hopefully its ready to go back on the road before next thursday.

i keep telling myself its hitting CL soon as its fixed, so i can move on with a 3.4 or 4.0 Taco, but we all know thats never 100%..

And that's why I want one. I've put over 100k on this truck in a hair over 4 years. A low mile taco would last sooooo long

I've lost track of how many times you've considered offing the Ranger. lol.

I wanna do the same, but I've put soooo much work into it that I just can't bring myself to do it.
