You write:  >>.  Could I still have too much angle
on the carrier bearing and need to lower it a little more?<<

Could be..  you need as little angle change as possible at the u-joints..
I think 3 degrees change is max that u-joints will tolerate with out vibs..

Two years ago I replaced the plug wires on my '96 Ranger, 3.0L. I didn't put
in performance wires, just a set of replacement wires that I bought from a
parts store. Didn't have any problems. Be sure to use the anti-seize
compound that comes with it so they don't seize on you.

Sounds like my '90 Bronco II a few years back.  Every time I'd stomp the
gas, or give it gas going up a hill from a dead stop, it would "rumble".  I
thought it was the transmission, but all checked out okay.  The drive shaft
needed to be replaced (about $290) or rebuilt ($100).  I chose to have it
rebuilt and haven't had any problem for about 5 years!  The driveshaft has a
CV joint, probably 2, that don't have grease fittings.  They can be rebuilt,
but I wouldn't try it myself.  The cost of having a driveline guy work on it
is well worth the investment!  Good luck.

I have a '91 Ranger 4x4 xtracab.  I would like to replace the bed entire bed
as it's getting pretty dinged up.  Will any short-bed fit (e.g. 2wd, regular
cab) or what are the rules?

Thanks,
