Re: Truck not coasting well!

Get the wheels up in the air and spin them by hand. It shouldn't feel sticky at all, just a light dragging sound from the pads at most. You can try cracking all your bleeders on the calipers and see...

Re: Cb antenna ideas

Keep in mind co-phased or dual antennas only really work when about 8 or 9 feet apart and you're only talking about a few decibels of gain.

Re: 2011 XLT Styleside Ranger Mud Flaps

Same with my 2011. I just put some aftermarket ones on the front. You can steal a screw from the fender flare if you have them and put another one in the flare itself.

Re: 2003 Ford Ranger Brake Issue

Abs should only come on when 1 or more wheels lock up. It could be a sensor issue if it's happening on dry pavement. No dash lights at all hey?
