New Toy

Just for grins, I'm gonna show you my new (2001) toy-

Ford Ranger/4x4 off-road, rides much stiffer than my jeep, but I can HAUL more





Heh Heh and it fits in my garage, along with the jeep and the YOTA !

This was the Ranger off-road-model and has Traction-lok in the rear-

Stock with complete bedliner and bed tie-downs, I won't be doing as drastic mods as the jeep (WE'LL SEE)--

It has twice the towing capacity as the jeep/w more power than the 3.8l (it's 4.0L)-

We'll see-

Sweet truck. Rangers are IMO the best pickups. I had rangers before I had a wrangler and if they made a four door I would probably still have one. They are the jeeps of the pickup world - simple, small and maneuverable and great off-road. I was a long time member of ranger powersports

Auto as well?

A larger trans cooler is a good idea there as well. My sport trac with the 4.0 sohc auto went from 180-190 in down to 160. And ran much more reasonable temps towing at elevation.

I don't know if you plan on doing much with it but they also respond well to lower gearing. If it has 4.10s on stock tires they are pretty strong. I ran 33s and 4.88s and it was awesome. Also a good tuner makes a world of difference with that transmission.

I've had several rangers/explorers too. At least four that I can think of right now from 94 to 05. A few weak spots but great rigs overall.

Yeah, it's called SUPERCAB and has little rear doors, I'd hate to try to carry adults though, it's just for grandkids and it's actually my third ranger-

I think its, 4.10 gears, but with the auto, you've given good info, thanx-

I had one with the super cab option and it was nice for storage but couldn't put a baby seat in the back. My favorite ranger was an 03 edge regular cab(or daycab as I called it). It had the 3.0 Vulcan with manual trans. Only problem I had was with the slave cylinder for the trans. I wish i had kept that truck.

I spotted it a year ago, when I was looking for a Dodge dakota and the dealer told me it wasn't for sale, he was restoring it, so I gave him my phone # and said call if he wanted to sell--he did last week and

I paid $8700 for the Ranger/w $300 buck delivery to my house in Nevada, it was in Sacramento, Ca.

The kewl thing is NO SALES TAX, because it was purchased/delivered in Nevada-

He had replaced eng/tranny driveshafts/brakes/CV boots and the actual chassis mileage is 199,000 miles, but it looks/feels/drives new-its been kept inside -

Now my wife'll want me to sell the jeep, fraid not, maybe the trailer, but not the jeep--to much of me init-

If your fuel pump ever goes out on that, just take the bed off. It took me and a friend less than a half hour to replace his a few days ago. Really helps when the gas tank is full.
