Default On the road again! Finally bought a battery for the Ranger

I couldnt stand looking at my Ranger sitting there with a dead battery any longer. Since the weather is decent and the roads are dry for now I finally bit the bullet and picked up a new battery for the old girl and took her for a spin. The weather is supposed to get cold and snow again here early next week so ill drive it untill then. Sure felt good to drive her again, so much more fun to drive than my F-150.

New Optima Yellow top,



Down by the big lake checking out the ice on it,







the local ice fishing hole,




first time these tires have touched snow,



tucked in the garage to get some grease and a quick check up,



and a random pic of the sticker i got free in the mail the other day

well damn, would have been a good photo shoot day! ill get in touch next time.

no, they are an AGM battery. i think they used to be gel battery's up until a couple years ago when they changed manufacturers. they are a spiral cell battery though so they are supposed to be more robust than a regular battery.
