    What did you do to your Ex/Mounty/RBV today?

    Check at Walgreens or just about any other store that has nail polish. You can either paint it black or find one that only has a tint to it so you can still see it when it's on

    Wrigley_1285's Old No Name getting a body swap

    I remember seeing a post that had side by side comparisons of a ranger and explorer frame. I thought the front half of both frames were the same and only the rear frame section was different.

    Wrigley_1285's Old No Name getting a body swap

    I've been on here for years and I've somehow never seen that before. If I can't find factory linkage for a good price I'm probably going to make my own. I might end up getting one for temporary use and to keep in the truck as a backup.

    Wrigley_1285's Old No Name getting a body swap

    Thanks for the info. I measured my truck and the only way I can use an extended cab is with some major body work or going 4 link and moving my rear axle back atleast 4". Both of those options are going to take more time and money than what I'm willing to part with so I'm gonna use a standard...

    I trying to plan a body swap on my Explorer Sport but I need some measurements. Can someone with a 98+ 4 door extended cab ranger measure from the center of the front wheel to the cab corner.

    Why does everything in my garage rust

    It doesn't smell like bleach. It only smelled for a day or two after I used it. Do you have any recommendations for what type.of acid to use? I've though about doing an epoxy garage floor kit on it but I don't want to do it and it keeps rusting everything.

    Why does everything in my garage rust

    I bough my house 3 years ago. The disgusting people that lived here before me would leave their dog locked in the garage 24/7. It would piss and shi* all over the floor and all they would do is just pick up the turds. When we moved in I tried a dozen chemicals on the concrete floor to try and...

    What did you do to your Ex/Mounty/RBV today?

    I ran mine through a car wash....first time in probably 8 months or longer. But I needed to knock some dirt and a ton of rust off so I could put the hitch on that's been sitting in the garage for over 6 years:dunno:

    HELP!!!! Sabotaged 97 explorer.

    well if you're not gonna call the cops I would suggest investing in some rock salt rounds to give him a little persuasion next time he tries messing with your truck also one other thing to worry about in your gas tank is bleach. i had a buddy do that to someone's car and it blew the original...

    What did you do to your Ex/Mounty/RBV today?

    I was hanging fluorescent lights in my garage and the ex had a dead battery plus I had my old couch in the way and my trailer was in the driveway in front of the ex so instead of taking a hour to move everything to get a ladder I just used the ex as my ladder and then to relax

    What did you do to your Ex/Mounty/RBV today?

    This is what happens when you're laid-off, bored and find a bunch of random decals in the garage. I also got ahold of my tool box and chemical cabinet.
