Installed new pair of bug season fighters (wipers). It’s fun to be short, yeah.
If you can find one of these they really come in handy for working on you truck. Especially for us "vertically challenged" ones. :sunglasses:

I have no idea how it’s spelled in local language and if there are any in our country at all.
It’ll be a challenge, but I’ll check what I can find, thank you for reminding of this step existence. :)

Amazon and Harbor Freight have it here. Maybe you could show a couple places this and they can search for you? It does come in really handy and folds up nicely. I think David @subquark bought one too. But then again, he buys just about everything people post on here. :giggle:

Yes, David @subquark must have secret warehouse full of stuff for Soupie and he’s not finished for sure.
For this Amazon step shows quite reasonable price and delivery time. Some time ago tax plan for ordering out of EU was changed and when I was looking for swing box I would had to pay same for taxes and delivery as item itself, was more reasonable to take it with little less money from dealer.
This step on link for sure goes for stock 18 inch Ranger?

There's slotted adjustments on the sides so you should be good.

I only have the poor person's Ranger with tiny steelies and it fit great.

It's perfect for engine work BUT limited outside of that. I just got rid of mine (recycled at the dump, of course) and, for about the same weight and maybe lighter, I prefer something like this: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Gorilla...tform-300-lbs-Load-Capacity-GLWP-47/305590237

Maybe you can find something similar, if that fits your needs. =)

All that David and he was talking about ceramic window tint for his windshield. lol 😆 But it's nice to see you're always looking out for me.😜
And here I am using a $300 Adam’s Air Cannon just to dry my truck. 💀 I’d hate to know my total detailing set-up cost. 😆 I even use a Deionizer.

Today I did an oil and filter change, replaced the air filter and rotated the tires. This make the 5th time on a 4 year old truck with 16,110 miles. That is excessive going by the mileage but not by the age so I guess I lean toward excessive, Ha Ha. But the ground keeps getting farther and farther away every time I do this causing more aches and pains. It can not be because I'm getting older? :frown:

I do think you’re nuts, but that’s only because I do the same thing, get the floor, jack out, get the tires out and detail every single millimeter of them. So I think I’m crazy as well!
I also end up detailing in the wheel well area behind the tires, cleaning up everything I can get to and trying to make the springs, sharks, everything looks good. and trying to make the springs, sharks, everything looks good.

(this was my first run through, I went through it again, and made it even cleaner!)
Do you take it to the next level of insanity as well??


Hi Folks,
Some of you might think I'm crazy or nuts, today I took off the wheels (one at a time) washed and polished each wheel. I do this every year to my vehicles, usually in the fall. Did my wife's Escape last week.
