RangRayy's Elite Registry

I finally decided it was time to become "Elite." Here she is. My baby is a 1999 XLT 4dr 4x4. I bought her off my dad in '07, I couldnt pass up the deal I got as well. She had 99K on her and was my dads company car. Valued then at 6400 I stole her heart at 3200. :) Now shes sitting on 155K. Shes all stock minus the few mods I have started doing. We had a minor fender bender with my neighbor and she frowns a little bit in the front but she has to wait till i can give her a facelift and tuck. As for now we reside in Pleasant Hill Missouri, so she sees all the ellements mother nature has to offer, she sticks by myside and never threatens to leave me.

special thanks to:
Russ 99ex22.

Update just replaced all four of my factory ball joints thanks to Jon for allowing me to come down and help me out. Headed out today to give her a lil tune up and give her a fresh drink of oil.

well had an overheat problem sat afternoon. after going through all the emotions and cursing i calmed down and got the thermostat out. that fixed the temp gauge from going up. but at the same time it also didnt work anymore...

i was stranded at a tech college which a security guard helped me do some of the work. we got it pulled over to the water spickit and i noticed that there was green fluid all under my door. take a gander under the truck and then WHAM theres a leak somewhere... in the midst of everything its pouring down rain keep that in mind.

I franticly call Jon and we go through the possibilities and things get frustraiting bc he couldnt see what could be wrong just giving advice over the phone. well i went to Orielys and picked up a bottle of CarGyo Liquid Glass cooling system repair and man two bottles of that stuff sealed that leak up good. highlky recommended. Jons advice was that it couldve just been a blown headgasket but with not seeing he couldnt tell just going by the symptoms i was giving.

after that said and done took me from 5pm to midnight to get everything fianlly running again to where i could get the ole girl home. driving home the temp went up and as soon as i got on the highway bam temp went down but not to worry i made it home.

put the new thermostat in and now shes running like a champ.
