I wish trs #1 would show up somehow, after all its the original “rangerstation truck”. just like all the bigfoots are cool, but the original is still where it all began.
+1.

Ain’t gonna happen though.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Why are you morons not shouting "ANY RANGERS OWNERS UP IN THIS BITCH?" as soon as you walk in the place??

I was really hoping I'd finish up my V8 truck TFI conversion early today and I was thinking of heading that direction, but I didn't finish it up until shortly before dark. I want to get some drive time on it to see if my mod is a solid one..

Being stranded because of a faulty homemade electrical connector would suck. No buying parts to replace that.. I'd have to pull the distributor and have a good one (with TFI) to install, which I don't have at the moment..

Test miles are going to be important on this one.

I'm in Warren. See you guys in the morning. Make room in your cooler for a gas station sandwich Ryan. Hope the road getting in there isn't too bad. My Pirelli Diablo Rosso tires aren't too good off road.

Let's face it. This entire debacle is due to shitty Ford ignition design which YOUR 2.9 also shares...

At least mine is relocated.

So, it's looking like I got 2 reliability mods on you. No eggshell head 2.9 AND a relocated TFI..


MODS: I vote we change @PetroleumJunkie412's name to PrestoneJunkie412

Hey now, mine is relocated as well. Also, my power steering works when my engine is off. 🖕🏿

Your engine is decadent.



Yeah, I said it.


Can't un-say it.
