    I created another since you can only upload a few pics. I will just host them from photobucket. Also I cannot upload pics from my pc. It worked yesterday but not anymore.

    First I'll start with what I traded in to get my Taco:

    2003 Ford Ranger 4wd 4.0 5 speed. Decent truck if it could keep from killing the slave cylinder. I traded in at 150K miles still running strong.

    Night pics. I tried to get all the same shots before and after. I have an issue with the dome light but it is getting replaced(thanks LJ). 6 out of the 24 LEDs on the dome are not as bright as the rest. I had to put on sun glasses to see what was going on. Each LED emits light from 3 spots. The 6 that are not as bright only emit light from one spot. So keep in mind that 6 LEDs in the dome are not at maximum brightness.

    This is a white stage 2 kit:

    . They fit with no rubbing at all. I haven't been offroad yet so I don't know if they will rub at full compression. The trucks feels squirley so I did the chalk test. It looks like they were overinflated at 35 psi so I dropped them to stock pressure and I'll chalk them tomorrow. There is less road noise and just a bit of tire noise.

    Race Times:

    I rolled into the throttle in 2wd with Auto LSD on:
    1/8th mile 9.848 @ 70.53 mph

    http://www.youtube.com/user/fddriver.../4/HcXIILBthPw

    Second run I was in 2wd with Auto LSD on but I punched the throttle off of the line. The ALSD system worked a bit to get the truck going:
    1/8th mile 9.960 @ 70.74

    http://www.youtube.com/user/fddriver.../3/kDxpasWR0I4

    This time I used 4wd and launched off of the converter:
    1/8th mile 9.838 @ 67.62

    Last run was 4wd and converter again:
    1/8th mile 9.760 @ 70.44

    Thanks. I used to drive a lot so I just wanted to make my truck a comfortable place to be in. Lift and junk can come later.

    I probably would've been smarter and better off that way too since mine is my only vehicle, but i dont have very good discipline when it comes to such things i do want a set of those seat covers though.

    Does it get in the way of the passenger and can you remove it easily if needed? I kinda want one for my Galaxy Tab.

    Thanks.

    I would commute 62 miles a day on these. I have about 40K miles on them without issue. They did have slight cupping issues but I don't know if that was an alignment issue or an air pressure issue.

    no it does not get in the way and it is held down by the seat anchor bolt. Very easy to remove, if you have 10mm laying around.
