    Question: Will 19" wheels from 2011 Mustang fit?

    I have read the offset is +50mm. Tire size is 245/45/19. Trying to mount on my 2002 Explorer Sport 2wd. Will this work without issues? Anyone have a similar setup? Maybe some pics? The seller says they will fit Ranger but trying to research prior to purchase. Thank you.

    5 speed shift problems....please help

    The pedal is really low. I did find out the master was dry. I filled it up and it seems better. I might have to bleed. Not sure what would make it lose fluid. I guess I need to look for leaks. After doing a serch about bleeding, it looks like I am in for a headache. 88k on the truck

    Need help with lug nut replacement...

    Thanks, I didn't know they made a tool to do it. I bought a new stud and as I was pulling it in with a nut I over tightened and it broke again. It was probably machined like crap and I just couldn't get it to bottom out. I forced it and it broke. I should have stopped and ran with it, it was a...

    Need help with lug nut replacement...

    The lovely local tire shop that mounted my rims and tires decided to cross-thread one of my lug nut studs and it broke off. What's the secret to replacing these? Remove e-brake drum parts or pull the axel shaft?

    Sounds like you gotta plan. I wanna go SOA/high steer on my CJ in the future but I won't til I find a front d44 or upgrade to a d44front/d60rear combo. I just installed 4" SUA and 1" heavy duty shackles on it. Runnin 35's for now. Always a work in progress. So you got rid of your CJ, eh?

    XplorerKid's 2wd Beast

    I like the work you put into that but don't like the wheels. Very skinny looking and top heavy rig. Go with 15x10's. Also, that much truck should be 4 wheel drive. Nice truck.

    Tint removal question

    I know it has been discussed on here before about heating up tint and using soap/water to remove, but what about very old, bubbly, cracked tint? Any suggestions. The tint I'm trying to remove is just breaking apart. Is there a solution or something that will help?
