Default The Ranger finally got some TLC

Heres a few pics from yesterday and my attempt at fixing my coolant leak. i found out my thermostat housing has a crack and needs to be replaced but at least i got to flush the cooling system anyways.




put all back together, got coolant up to temp and its seeping from a seam in the housing. i also suspect an intake leak as well but i wont know untill this week when i put a coolant system pressure test on it. piss!


i also have been feeling bad that the old girl is parked outside now and shes needed a bath badly so today she got a wash, claybar, wax and interior cleaning.

Yeah I should drive it more. It sure doesn't like to sit outside. Since I stopped driving it everyday the rear axle started leaking, the trans is dripping from the drain plug and now this coolant leak. Its punishing me

Did you add the blue ring to those already classic IMO rims?

I don't believe I've seen anything like them.

If you bought 'em nice choice. If you made 'em like that ...words fail me.

Since nobody else noticed it, why not plates on the truck? Looks great though.
