Made a new battery mount outside of the cab, turned out nice



Mounted the bedside for good, with quick release fasteners and edged the cuts on the sides with door edging so I don't cut anybody in half on accident.

Working on the ranger, fixing up the radius arms and such, decided to replace the fuel lines, thinking of using steel...any concerns with it?

Also, my wipers are working on and off, anyone know how that system works? Seems like a relay is going bad, but I don't know where to start.

I think about it from time to time, but I'm not really finishes with the bed area yet so probably not for a while. It would be nice to keep the fuel cell clean though.
