Tbars Project "X" begins

First and foremost my ranger is my favorite truck...I will not let any of you fools try to talk me into changing my new project into some rock beast, lmao...this rig is just to go camping and fishing in and thats it...it took all the money i had to buy and the seller was great and is a new member here....thanks rick, the seller that is...

I have never as much sat in an explorer and today was the first time i opened a door on one...

It needs alot of tlc and a new 4.0 motor as the current one is seized...It needs a bit of paint work as the clear coat is shot and the front fenders are a different color....

Notes
1) Kbabiak, you need to make some pre-made shipping tags with my name on them as I will be needed a bunch of little parts...
2) Admin Rick, I sent my new membership dues in at 8am this morning as i was hoping to be a new X owner...
3)All elite members, I am going to need alot of help and parts for my new to me, 91 XLT

...i've been way to busy with work to attend to the X...i still need to replace the fan clutch and i found a leak on a rubber return line for the tranny cooler so i'm hoping to find a tranny temp guage and the time to install it...
...i did recently purchase something for the X though, a 160 amp alternator which i'm waiting on delivery...it will help power some of the future mods...:D

...just the negative connection at the battery is cracked...if i tighten it a couple more times it will break...i'll probably replace them both a.s.a.p. but i need to tend to the neg cable first...:D

...the alt. would help with the above mentioned items..think of it as a bigger power plant..

...a second battery works great for isolating power usage such as accessories on a seperate battery or for power storage, which is most useful when you have a trailer or camper...

...and i just picked up a negative cable for the X..

..it's a belden pn#717991 for 27 bucks at napa...i got the price for the positive cable while i was there and they quoted me just shy of 40 bucks...from what i seen from all the parts stores, these are probably the best over the counter cables i've found...:scratch:

...the negative cable pn#717991...
