Sometime in the past week I accidently installed an air pressure removal device on one of my tires. Not a fan of this mod and Ill be going to get it removed soon.

Wouldnt recommend this mod!

I once had a tire in for repair that had one half of a set of needle nose pliers inside the tire through one hole. One half of the handle, one half of the vise. To this day, I still don't know how that could have happened.

I had a 1 1/4 in open faced wrench in a tire on my 98 Ranger once. Couldn't believe it when I pulled over.

It's mind boggling when you see some of the things in tires. I worked in a gas station where people brought tires in to be plugged and a few of them... dude, this cannot be repaired. Hammers, screw drivers, eye glasses, etc.

Knocked some of the dirt off at the lazy, half-ass wash and then added grey FX4 decals to replace the originals. I left it debadged for a little while, but it just seemed like something should be there.

Where did you get the decal?

Finally got around to installing some of the things I've had prior to my truck arriving in June! RL intrusion beams, flares, wheels/tires. Also did the smoked led front markers to blend with the flares, and Diode dynamics SS3 foglight pods in while the bumper was basically hanging off for the intrusion beam install (it looked like it would have been a real pain to do at any other time!!). Not pictured but also BD trims tailgate letters and started some carbon fiber inside with the tiffskinz steering wheel trim. B&I trim kit to come, among other things.
Tires are 295/70r17 on 17x9's with +1mm offset. Suspension is the Eibach Pro-Truck Lift kit +3"/+1" installed by the dealer prior to taking delivery to keep warranty intact. Man, I love how this thing is sitting now! :)

Thos 295s look so good. I was about to order some K02s in that size and now they're sold out with no ETA on re-stock. Looked at Toyo as well, and their re-stock ETA is November :headbang:

Supply chain issues are still pretty common it seems. I had these (and boxes upon boxes of other things) sitting around for weeks before my truck arrived in fear of everything being backordered. It was between Nitto and Toyo for me. Have you checked Nitto availability? I'm impressed with these tires so far.

Love to see another Ranger owner rocking the Vector 6s. I have only seen a few builds around with them but I absolutely love mine so far. Cant recommend them enough for the perfect stance. I seen a set on a Taco which looked sharp as well.

I love mine, the hardest thing for me was deciding between black and grey. I got lucky too, the price on the Vector 6s looks like it's jumped over $70 per wheel since I got mine, and that was about a month and half ago.

Fed it the mounting bolt to the intercooler air inlet pipe...somewhere in the twisting, turning folds of metal lives that bolt and I will never see it again until I blow the head gasket, or fill my oil with fuel or polish the damper rod...hmmm :crazy:,

Edit: I mean it's laying in the engine compartment somewhere on top of the engine...😁
