Default Finally

I also found out today the insurance people are pissed that the body shop used all OEM parts and not aftermarket parts.

Got some descent pictures of the finished body work and bumper work done to the truck. Hopefully this weekend I can get back to working on the exhaust like I was trying to do that fateful Sunday afternoon.

Also showing off for the first time the OEM skid plate I got from Ben Oct. 24th but due to the wreak was unable to show till now









PERFORMANCE ACCESSORY BUMPER BRACKETS



And the skid plate

I got it from a guy I helped install a bodylift for. I dunno how thick it is I would guess 1/4" or a tad more

Ford makes two skid plates for your Ranger stainless and carbon steel.

Both are expensive if you buy from ford
Cheaper if you buy from online ford outlet
stainless front plate is: YL5Z-5B018-AA $237.57
carbon steel plate is: 1L5Z-5B018-AA $210.00

it's getting better. Work has been rough these past 2 days. It takes ear plugs and ear muffs to keep from getting a head ache, and I am taking it easy on the lifting.

Surprisingly they (work) told me not to do heavy lifting even though I had a full release. They dont want me getting hurt again and missing work

This one is so shiny and new I like it a lot more than the other one.

The one I had before I traded some guy in New York for it. The thing was rusty under neath real bad
