I'm sorry for you.



1996 Ranger 2.3 Liter 5 speed.
Brake pads, shoes, oil, coolant, tires, spark plugs, and battery. Those are the items on the truck which were not installed at the factory. The clutch, transmission fluid, rear differential, and entire truck are 100% original. I'd bet money this truck will see 500,000 miles before any major service is required and is driven 80 miles a day every day of the year.

A significant portion of parts on that truck were manufactured by Mazda btw.. Not to mention the 2.3 Lima motors were bullet proof, even if they did only make 50hp..

"I clicked on it so I can tell Viperormiata that guy sucks but he really didn't that was ******* hillarious."
Sadly, I cannot say that. I made it 1:53 until I turned it off.

You fail at humor man. That guy is ******* great. Have seen several of his shows at a local comedy club.

Try this one.. Just watch the whole video.... His impression of Don LaFontaine is great!

You have to remove the skidplate from the new Tundra Pickups to remove the oil filter (little cartridge type deals). I've never done one before but my "grand father-in-law" has one and was asking where the filter was. After a little research I found that it was not even visible (well, the access bolt that holds it in was not visible) unless you start taking parts off. Not sure if removing bolts and lowering a 20 pounds slab of metal to just get to the cover over the filter qualifies as "ease of service".

UGH! I watch the whole thing. No, HE fails at humor. Sorry. Nothing against you or him. Comedy is in the eye of the beholder.

Try this (for the love of God, this is NOT SFW - you have been warned). If you don't know the aristocrats joke you should watch a few on youtube to get the feel for it:

Aww boo. With the proper tools it's a 30 second task. Either air or electric impact, zip them right off. I do several of these a day, on Lexus SUV's. I will admit I avoid them when I can, getting the holes to line up when going back on can be a bitch at times.

You cannot say "Aww boo" and "I avoid them" in the same post.

Ugh...**** Toyota and their skid plates...one of those ******* was the cause of my severed Achilles tendon. To this day, I'd still love to punch a number of Toyota engineers in the face and ***** at the same time.

Ok Rob, that's two insanely gross things I've looked at/watched this morning that you've posted.

Has leatherface hacked your account?

That's probably what my tendon looked like while they were fixing it.


Actual pic of staples from surgery being removed from my leg. Note that my leg was a little bigger aroudn than a soda can because of atrophy

Yep. We had a 1984 Toyota Van LE for 20 years, RWD, tilt roof up front and a powered full sliding roof in the rear. Also had an "Ice Maker" between the front two seats, basically two ice making trays set in mini fridge cooled by the a/c system. Take out the back two rows of seats and you basically have a large covered truck. Didn't have much power but pulled a loaded small Uhaul trailer without much complaint. I think it may have had a better turning radius than a Miata but the ride was bouncy as hell. Only engine work I did that was a pain in the *** was replace the alternator, everything else was pretty easy like Joe said. After 500,000 miles it finally had some sort of major engine failure and sat until we had it hauled off. While we had it we had a '91 Previa too, very similar vans.
