    Also, no worrying about dressing for work. Just have to decide which pair of jeans to wear along with a matching t-shirt. :crackup:
  5. Line-X Standard versus Line-X Premium

    Consider Bullet Liner if there's one in your area. Already comes with the UV protection. Bullet was started by the guy who originally started Line-X. He left the company, and using a different formula, started Bullet. I have the Bullet...only 1 1/2 years, but still looks brand new.

    What's really nice about retirement... Meeting with other old farts a few times a week at Bojangles (name your own spot) for breakfast... Knowing you have plenty of time to start AND finish a project with no time constraint... Waking up to 8 inches of snow on the ground and realizing you don't...

  10. What did you receive in the mail today for your Ranger?

    My 2021 has the hood side seals, but no bumpers. Before I buy em, curious as to any HP increases they may provide ! :clap: I've come to the conclusion that any more mods I do must not only be aesthetically pleasing to the eye, but must provide a noticeable HP increase. :like:

  12. North Carolina Pivot Box Hardware

    The swing box are made for Ford by UnderCover Swing Case's. You might have better luck contacting them for replacement parts....they both use the same mounting parts.
  13. Need advice on taillights

    Of course...they replace the hex head screws that are used...the one's that screw into the taillights.
  14. Need advice on taillights

    Yes...the small hex head screws that hold the lights in take an 8mm wrench/socket to remove. The threaded part is 6mm x 20mm long A 1/4" x 3/4" screw is within .3mm so about the same size.
  15. Need advice on taillights

    After following this, I just went out and bought a pack of license plate security torx screws. 1/4 " x 3/4 "....pack at Advance Auto is $6 bucks. Comes with a 27 torx wrench, but I happen to have a set of security torx sockets. If it slows someone even a few minutes extra, so be it....
  16. New (aftermarket) Engine Covers

    Make sure, after the install, you dyno the truck to see what HP gains you got. :clap:
  17. Oil filter relocation

    Fumoto for the Ranger's is the F107SX. It is designed to fit in the recessed notch that the OE drain plug sits in. A regular type Fumoto won't fit properly as there isn't enough room in the notch/recess to screw it in properly. I have the F107SX, via Amazon, around $31-$32, and it works...

  19. What did you do to your Ranger today?

    No, the HFK's are only installed on trucks that are in the southern hemisphere. Here in the northern hemisphere, we only have the Lapristrocisel gearing.
  20. What did you do to your Ranger today?

    But, what happens when you put the truck into reverse ? I have heard that when you do, it causes the lapristrocisel gearing in the transmission to go into a pause state, which will then incur the reversal of the main planitarial gear. This would seem to negate any hp gains, thus allowing your GF...
