Welp, I couldn't take it any longer, the curiosity was killing me. Not a 6.0 thing but I figured some of you might get a kick out of it. The little Ranger got some boost...

Was there a reason behind putting a super charger on a ranger? Either way, I like it lol.

I believe it's time for rotors... I just did the wheel bearings a month ago but that didn't stop my pulsing when stopping (they were bad though), so I'm now getting rotors. I just did pads front and rear about 2k miles ago so the pads should still be good. What brands do you guys recommend for rotors? I used to think Powerstop was the go to for brakes but I've been hearing a different story recently.

Also is there anything else that could cause this pulsing while stopping? I have new upper and lower ball joints, and new wheel bearings.

I had one laying around. I thought it would be a fun project. I like more power. Sometimes I lose my mind and pretend I have more money than sense.

Well I ended up going with rotors from Detroil axle, reviews seem good and the price was alright. Hopefully I won't regret this decision lol.

Also while I'm spending money, I'm looking at getting the Hypertech to adjust my speedo for the 37's. Can anyone explain to me how these work? I found 1 that looks fairly easy, but it's only for the gas trucks. Once I put in that my truck is diesel, it gives me this thing and I have no clue how this thing is supposed to work. If I put in the part number, 4 wheel parts gives me one that looks like an actual calibrator thing with a screen, but Jegs, Summit racing, CarID, etc. all give me something that looks like this:

Awesome, thanks @voodooridr got $50 off from advanced auto. I ended up having to call them to figure out what all the differences were, the one that I posted was if you had their tuner and you needed the calibration too.

So I finally got around to mounting my new Trail Ridge mirrors(‘08-‘16 style) with power fold. I love the view, and the lack of vibration that I had with the Syppos. What I don’t love is that I have power to the plug, but no power fold at the passenger mirror. Worked great the night I finished. I cycled it about 15 times. But the next morn, no go on the passenger side. There is a small square on the mirror harness, where the main harness plugs into, that I think is a switch, or regulator. I get power to that, but not coming out. It worked again yesterday for a minute. I guess I will see about warranty
