Gone



My ranger has given up the ghost! My wife was out getting some groceries yesterday and it happened.Lovely little loss of oil pressure followed by rapid evacuation of oil along the road. IT happened so quick my wife was lucky to get the truck off of the road and out of traffic. When I crawled under it to look around I knew it was toast. Oil coated everything underneath from oil filter area to the rear differential. Since my dad had never put the truck in my name I let him do what he needed to do and he junked it.

Now I am really going to be babying the Trailblazer until we can afford to buy another vehicle. I guess it was a good thing my wife and I were car pooling two days a week this semester as now I just added three more days. Hopefully the tax refund can be of some benefit to us next spring. So if we have any more meets this year that I can attend, I'll be showing without a Ford,

well lets see im 5' 4" and my partner is 6'5" so for me to drive the truck and him to ride in it is a logistical nightmare for us and thats why we want seats or a split bench because he rarely cares to drive the truck its self so we want to have it so he can sit comfortably (yes we could adjust the bench back but I would rather have a seat that i can just leave as is lol) yes this truck is my more or less my work truck too....

I see said the blind man as he picked up his hammer and saw. Okay that makes perfect sense.
I'll look around, would you rather a split bench or a bucket seat? Have you asked in the F150 forum about using seats from another vehicle to see what others have had success in using.

Sorry to hear that Ryan. I'm guessing buying something right now is out of the question.

Yep. I keep looking around, but without the funds it is really just a pipedream. But with the way my schedule runs for school this semester, my wife and I should be able to make one truck work for us and maybe even be able to save some money in the process. I'm going to look into some odd jobs I can do to bring in some more money without hurting my school time.

Pays under the table works for me. lol

I kinda would love the buckets but honestly may need to stick to bench style, but seeing as were the only two who ride the truck I will go buckets so I can put a center console in the truck and have some storage space for my self so to answer the question, buckets preferred, color matched to the interior IF possible, if not black or some form of dark brown/tan is fine I have enough dark colors to get by LOL!!!
