Default Austin's; Here What I Did To My 2008 Ranger Thread

Well I have posted a few threads already about stuff I have done to my truck so I figured I would make this to keep track of what is being done. For this first post I will link to stuff I have already done, then when I do more I will just add the link to this page.

BTW, does this count as double posting or anything? I don't want to get into trouble by doing it this way.

That's the best looking CB radio install I've seen so far!

Yesterday after work I did a SeaFoam treatment to my truck. 1/3 Gas, 1/3 Crankcase, 1/3 Vacuum Line. Smoked for about 2 blocks, hopped on freeway, smoke died down after 2-3 miles.

Today I cleaned the MAF Sensor and did the "AirBox Mod". I don't think the "AirBox Mod" did anything.

I will be going to my parents next week so I will burn at least 2 tanks of gas. I usually get 26 MPG so I can see if I get any better after doing this stuff.

I had a better post but then when I clicked to post I didn't click that I was aware that the thread is X Days old and lost what I had typed. Is there a way to fix this to where a box pops up or something instead of having to go back and losing what I had typed?
