I haven't washed my Ranger's engine yet, but when I cleaned the engine in my '01 Bullitt GT, I would mix up some dish washing detergent and hot water in a spray bottle.
Spray everything while the engine was running and rinse. I think the only thing I covered was the box that had the fuses in it.
Today the Ranger was used to move a curio cabinet from our house and delivered to my Father In-Law's house. It's an early birthday present from the wife and I.
Look at my post history and you might say "Is Scott D in the antiques/furniture business?" No, lol. The last curio cabinet purchase was...
I'm about 8 miles away from 1K and I've got on my Supercab (kinda) twice.
My previous vehicle was a '01 Bullitt GT (275 HP) and I gotta say the Ranger feels more impressive.
The pedal hasn't even been to the floor yet, but I'm more than satisfied already.
This was actually on Sunday, but the Ranger went on tour of the neighborhood after a storm came through Saturday night. A lot of trees came down and we were without power for around 14 hours.
The lovely wife and I had gone shopping the day before, so we took almost everything in our...
I've had mine for almost 7 months and it has 970 miles on it now.
My company vehicle (F250 Super Duty) gets used during the week and the wife's Escape gets driven when we shop on weekends.
I will drive it around the neighborhood every 2-3 weeks. It's not good to let a vehicle sit for long...
I got to say "Hi" to the "Walmart Ranger" owner last week. I see it parked in the same spot every week when the wife and I go shopping.
He was walking to his truck after getting off work or maybe going on break. I gave him the thumbs up and the wife told him how I point at it every week and...
No, it's an '83 that Dad bought a long time ago. The plan was to put a 302 in it, but like most of Dad's project cars, nothing happened.
I traded my '86 Ranger for an Eddie Bauer Bronco. around 19 years ago.
Went to a local dealership this morning and had them program the Securicode keypad that came with the truck when I custom ordered it last year.
I used some of my Fordpass points to pay for it.
When the lovely wife and I got home after antiquing in a nearby town, I installed it below the...
An old barn near my house. Built in 1901, I think.
I drove by it a few weeks ago and some Hollywood production company was filming in the pasture next door. You might see it on TV or in a movie someday.
It was a productive day and the Ranger got to play a part in it.
This morning I loaded up a bunch of tools and went to a piece of property that I inherited from Dad in 2019. I had to help a friend of Dad get two out of three cars moved to be trailered away at a later date. He had purchased them...
I bought new (last summer) and have no regrets.
Judging from all of the "tailgate damper installing/lift kitting/CV axle boot tearing/crash bar cutting/tuning/change their minds/rip the mods off/trade it in for a Ridgeline" Ranger owners out there, I'd rather get one that I know it hasn't been...
I paid it off this morning.
I had made 5 payments so far and didn't feel doing that anymore. There was no penalty for early payoff.
It has 871 miles on it now. :) I'm hoping it'll be the last vehicle I ever purchase.
Nothing special, I pulled it out of the garage and drove it around the neighborhood. It hasn't moved in 3 weeks, I think. I know I need to get out more.
It's so much fun to drive. My previous vehicle was a 2001 Bullitt GT and the Ranger feels much more nimble even though it's ride height isn't...
