    I'll trade you my ranger for the t3 for as long as you want. I give you less than a month.

    Non-directional? Back to front, same side. Done. But I've probably been doing it wrong my whole life.

    Right!, the 1GT AC is the smallest possible mans truck. Lets minitruck the t3. Stance camber, chopped, channeled, and sectioned to run sxs suspension & diffs. You could put a blower on it, all tuned up to make it howl, but you couldnt use it. As is, the open diff 3.0 slushbox i've got is terrible at everything. Stuck in wet grass, slow, and thirsty. I tried several trips with drafting, and in winter with the a/c off. Never got better than 17mpg. I'm getting better with the cap, this tank was 16.5, but i was really lucky about the lights in both directions. Had to haul ass to pass a group of bikes wanting to take up both lanes @ 5 under. Got into the slow lane & threatened to touch bumpers, and they let me & a couple more cars through before taking up the whole road. But the rest of the time i was on my best behavior. Need a belly pan to get back up into the 17's.

    I can't be bothered to jack up more than one side of the car at once. I'm a lazy sod (, I'm a lazy SID!) If I had a lift, I'd probably criss-cross applesauce (your #B) but ain't nobody got time for that.

    I would love to bag the 03, but that's not happening anytime soon. I'd also love to bob the bed (of both tundras) and weld a roll pan on the 03, then a fresh paint job. Supercharger or rear mount turbo would be cool, but with the mileage it's got, I could see the engine blowing. Anyways it was purchased for pennies on the dollar because it had a bunch of small problems. I've basically fixed all the important things. Still need to over come the stupid CEL and replace the clock spring. I wish URD still sold plug n play O2 simulators. I'd like to either roemove both the resonators or replace the TRD catback with something more muscle sounding, but keep the TRD tips. I hate the 03-06 grill I put on there. So eventually I'll either have a professional fix the original grill or I'll buy a TRD pro ripoff grill for it. Hell I might just keep the grill now and slap a Lexus emblem on it.

    I go to Discount Tire, 5 minutes from my house, and let them rotate my tires for free. I'm usually in and out in under 30 minutes. I watch them use a torque wrench so I know they aren't using an impact.

    I was just there a few days ago with Ravioli.

    The airbag ecu is bad, and it has a salvage title. Might as well turn it into a race truck, but its been repaired, and is too small, too slow, and not efficient enough. Wanna get 15mpg? Ranger is there, but the tundras gonna need a bit of lift and 33's. The mechanical problems i understand, and i drove the '80 f150 reg cab for years, but the ranger is just too small. If you expect a passenger, everything else has to be outside.

    Speaking of drill bits, does anyone have a good recommendation for a certain make of cobalt drill bits to drill out bolt heads? Not looking for most expensive, just a good bang for the buck.

    A.

    If tire wear is even thats ok. Otherwise A.



    If you have a tire machine/balancer you can get extra fancy and flip the tires on the wheels every 2, 4 or 6 rotations. Depending on tire wear.

    Same thing goes for asphalt it you grind it in there deep enough.
    #roadrash
    Couple very interesting (and very good) points of perspective here that aren't typically acknowledged. Like, the thought of half-time parenting and still living a life otherwise..... Obviously not the original plan, but an optimistic take no doubt. You know stuff good

    X3 in agreeance with Chrisper. The misery is blatant

    yeah um........ we call them prostitutes Bill.

    Holy shit that's cheap. If they had a 4.10 or even 4.30 rear only set I might have been interested.

    Wait a minute. Is there a catch? Not making 'em anymore? What?
    I need 4.56. Is this as ridiculously great savings as it first appears?!

    Ok, so I'll figure out the details for my 2002 AC and buy. Front and back need to match, yes? Any accessories or extras I'm supposed to buy at the same time, for the gears? (Obvs the locker and those bits are another purchase, to be installed at the same time.)

    You need the install kits. Front and rear. The gears need to match in terms of ratios and need to be the right sizes for front and rear pumpkins.
