    Are those road-draft tubes zip tied to the rear sway bar? Old School!
    You "feel" the difference because you want to "feel" the difference. Since you just spent money on the upgrade you "have" to feel the difference

    I'm looking to eliminate the double pump process I have to follow right now to get the pedal hard

    Re: Alsip Marauder


    The underhood lamp from 2003 300A is a nice touch. Couldn't find the receptacle unless Mercury removed it for 2004. I knew eventually I would have Marauder's rear bumper resprayed. The shop that resprayed the bumper on Mustang last year removed the cover and reinstalled - paint seems to match perfectly. He stated he would do the same with Marauder.

    Definitely like the underhood light. Been on the lookout for one of the ones out of a towncar in the wrecking yards here but haven't found one. Was told that they are all removed when the cars come into the yard due to hazardous waste (mercury switch). Not sure on the accuracy of that one since I can still buy them aftermarket.

    Is the plug in the firewall harness gone for 2004 too? Didn't find one unless I'm blind. Back in the late '80s, the Ford Ranger XLT had an underhood lamp up through '87 - my newly purchased '88 had the plug in the harness but no lamp. I bought the lamp assembly/pigtail at the parts counter and cut a piece out of the hood insulation in the correct location. Traded the largely trouble free truck 13 years and 181k miles later. A new water pump and a/c dryer (converted to R134a) were the only serious repairs that I recall. Oooops, Ford paid to repaint it during the warranty period and I had it repainted too several years later. Now on my 4th Ranger...

    Marauder left home yesterday for its new home in Louisiana. Swordfish and the Mrs. flew in yesterday and drove away in a fully serviced and detailed automobile - many extras too. I'm already heartbroken...

    Joe we just got home. We love the car. It’s just what we wanted. Cruise set on 75 almost the whole way averaged 20mph. We really enjoyed meeting you. Just like I said you ever around your welcome to take her for a drive anytime. Thanks for everything.
